Meghan Markle Wore A Dress And It Broke The Internet

    And the designer is THRILLED.

    Meghan Markle may be an accomplished actor, activist, yogi, and Duchess, but she is also an internet destroyer. On day one of the Australian tour, her ensemble👇crashed a fashion designer’s website.

    You see, this frock she’s wearing is by Australian designer Karen Gee. Gee is a mother of five and also a Harvard graduate who launched her body-positive label in 2013.

    Shortly after Meghan was spotted in Sydney on Tuesday morning in the white dress, called “Blessed”, Gee’s website crashed.

    Karen Gee website is already down. The Markle effect has begun.

    Something the designer called “a great thing”.

    “I’m incredibly blessed that more people are finding out about this wonderful brand,” the designer told the ABC. “Yes she is royal, and she is absolutely beautiful, but more important to me are her values and her purpose in that she loves to empower women.”

    The Duchess’s people have reportedly sourced a number of Aussie designer pieces for her to wear, including dresses by Alex Perry. So stay tuned for more local lewks as the tour continues in regional NSW on Wednesday.
