Meghan Markle – who is set to wed Prince Harry soon – refuses to wear fur on ethical grounds, claims her former agent.

Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne, Co-founder and Managing Director of Kruger Cowne Talent Management, was Ms Markle’s commercial agent between 2014-2016.

According to Nelthorpe-Cowne, Markle refuses to wear or promote fur – a choice that is becoming increasingly fashionable, with John Galliano, GucciVersaceDonna Karan, and Michael Kors all ditching the fabric.

Vegan leather

Markle has also revealed that she wears faux leather. In an interview the former Suits actor did with Good Housekeeping magazine, the star spoke about her penchant for vegan leather.

She said:”My wardrobe for my part in Suits isn’t like Working Girl – dressing for work doesn’t have to be so on-the-nose these days. 

“The key is to have your own point of view attached to it. 

“Personally, I love cropped pants in vegan leather, a great fitted blazer and a button-down [shirt].”

‘Part-time’ plant-based?

Although Markle has ditched animal skins, she is not vegan, though she eats a mainly plant-based diet.

She revealed earlier this year she is inspired by health reasons

She told Hello magazine: “I try to eat vegan during the week, and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends.”

The soon-to-be royal has been described by various media outlets as an ‘animal lover’, following reports that Prince Harry abstained from his usual Boxing Day shoot this year in an effort to appease her.
