Meghan Markle is now a style inspiration to thousands of women, so much so that designers are scrambling to get her to wear their designs, but it wasn’t always easy.
Ladies of London star Juliet Angus claimed on Saturday that, prior to her marriage to Prince Harry, “no big designers wanted to loan” Meghan clothes.
The Bravo personality shared an Instagram photo of Meghan and her new husband Harry stepping out for their evening wedding reception after the two tied the knot at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel.
“Hollywood glamour I remember five years ago trying to help my friend, who at the time was her stylist and no big designers wanted to loan to a#meghanmarkle well done, you won’t have that problem anymore,” Angus wrote in the caption. “@stellamccartney #royalwedding#harryandmeghan.”
A rep for Angus did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
A lot has changed since then. Meghan’s wedding dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy and featured long sleeves and a boatneck neckline.
It also had a train, though the length of the train paled in comparison to her 16-foot veil. And of course, during the ceremony, she paired her dress with a tiara — the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau tiara — borrowed from Queen Elizabeth II herself.

Meghan showed off her curves in a second dress on Friday night as she headed out to her wedding reception alongside Harry. She wore a custom silk dress by Stella McCartney with a “bespoke lily white high neck” with a sexy open back.
She accessorized her look with a pair of heels from one of her favorite footwear brands — Aquazurra — that are “made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue,” according to Kensington Palace. She also wore a pair of diamond drop earrings.
Not only did the former actress exude movie star looks, she also showed off an emerald cut aquamarine ring on her right hand that once belonged to Harry’s late mother Princess Diana, PEOPLE confirmed.
