Today, Meghan Markle celebrates her milestone 40th birthday. While we certainly miss seeing her appear at royal events, we look forward to bearing witness to her new life with Prince Harry, Archie, and Lili in California—which also includes breaking down what she's wearing. To that end, I decided to take a look back at some of Markle's favorite colors that she'll definitely be wearing more of in the future. 

For instance, did you ever notice that she's worn white on some of her most important events to date? That includes her engagement announcement, the first event after revealing her pregnancy, and Archie's debut to the world. On the bolder end of the spectrum, Markle also has a penchant for wearing highly saturated colors like bright blue, Kelly green, and fire-engine red when she wants to make an entrance. Scroll down to see and shop Meghan Markle's favorite power colors.
