Shop our pick of stylish and affordable handbags inspired by Meghan Markle's sell-out Strathberry bag.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Scotland's iconic Edinburgh Castle on Tuesday, marking their first official visit to the region as a couple. As usual all eyes were on the pair's amorous display of hand-holding and broad smiles, as well as the former-actress' sartorial choices.

In a very subtle nod to Scotland, Meghan, 36, wore a gorgeous tartan Burberry coat and a bottle-green leather handbag from local brand Strathberry, which is now sold out.

The highly coveted 'East/West' cross-body mini shoulder bag boasts a classic envelope shape with a gold bar closure and a gold chain strap.

It's the Meghan effect! The soon-to-be royal's Strathberry handbag has sold-out since her recent appearance in Scotland.

This isn't the first time Meghan has turned to the Scottish brand for accessories, the soon-to-be-royal totted a burgundy Strathberry handbag during her first royal engagement with her fiance Prince Harry, 33, which sold out in 11 minutes.

Currently the Strathberry website is taking email addresses to alert eager customers when Meghan's green bag will be available to purchase again. But, for those who are either impatient or unwilling to splash up to $750 on a Markle-approved purse, we've found some inexpensive handbags inspired by the Meghan's stylish accessory for you to shop right now.
