The royals love him, even making him a knight of the British empire
Ralph Lauren’s ties to the British royal family are extremely close. He was already buddies with Princess D, he is often seen hanging out with Prince William, and in general the royals love to wear his creations for public appearances. Not surprisingly, in 2018 he became the first American designer to ever be knighted by the Queen.
Meghan Markle, who was a brand ambassador even before marrying into the Winsdor family, is probably the biggest RL fan. Everyone remembers her in the pin-striped white and blue RL blouse she wore at Wimbledon in 2018, and Club Monaco was her most worn brand during her pregnancy.
One outfit, however, caused quite the stir. For Prince Louis’ baptism in July 2019, she chose to wear an olive dress by Ralph Lauren: after the appearance, searches for “Ralph Lauren green dress” peaked on Google Trends, as search interest rose by 223%.
