    The stylish garment, which the royal bride-to-be chose to wear during the engagement photo-call with the press on Monday, has proved such a hit that it caused the designer’s website to collapse.

    Ms. Markle has become a new trend-setter after she posed for photographers in a belted snow-white trench coat holding hands with Prince Harry at Kensington Palace as they announced their engagement on November 27.

    The chic wide-collared coat designed by LINE, a small Canadian label specialized in knitwear, reportedly retailed for about US $750 and was sold out in a matter of minutes, with the brand's website brought down several times by the flood of desperate buyers.

    However, the popular coat, which has been since renamed after Meghan, will soon be available again — the company has already ordered a new batch.

    So honoured to see Meghan Markle wearing our coat for her official engagement to Prince Harry.

    According to company co-founder John Muscat, the coat was presented by the company to Jessica Mulroney, Ms. Markle's stylist and best friend. The future wife of the Prince also reportedly has this model in other colors: burgundy, light gray, black and soft pink.
