Meghan Markle's choice of clothing when she attended the 2017 Invictus Games with Prince Harry received a thumbs up from the critics.

Markle's great outfit choices have sparked comparisons between her fashion influence on the masses to Kate Middleton's. The Duchess of Cambridge's choice of wardrobe has always gained the interest of the public, and the "Suits" actress is apparently following in her footsteps.

According to Daily Telegraph, when Markle appeared at the Invictus Games with her beau, her style wasn't as glamorous as Middleton's. Prince William's wife usually steps out with a demure and classic style of dress for public events. However, the "Horrible Bosses" actress set a new fashion trend with her white button-down shirt and jeans, which gained the public's approval.

The publication noted that the Meghan Effect has started and it is as potent as the Kate Effect. Markle's $420 jeans by Los Angeles-based brand Mother were sold out moments after she was photographed wearing them. Her $230 Misha NoNoo blouse and $640 Sarah Flint footwear also flew from the shelves shortly after. Meanwhile, her $210 tote bag has become more in-demand with a lengthy waitlist.

There is no doubt that Markle's popularity is growing, especially now that Prince Harry has been spending more time with her in Toronto. In fact, NBC Universal has given the actress new security protocol. The "Dater's Handbook" star has reportedly been given round-the-clock protection courtesy of a personal security team. NBC Universal, the media giant behind the program service USA Network where "Suits" airs, also extended the protection to her home and the set of her hit TV series.

A number of cameras were installed at the back and front of Markle's rented home. There is also a team that performs regular sweeps on the street. According to her neighbors, the street was "full of police" when Prince Harry was there.

The duke is set to stay in Toronto from Sept. 22 to 30 for the Invictus Games. Earlier this week, Prince Harry also stopped by the set of "Suits" to visit his lady love. She returned the favor by giving the royal a tour around the set and introducing him to her co-stars and the crew.

"He was super low-key, met some crew and was so happy to watch his lady. He's incredibly supportive of her work," a source said.
