Britain's Prince Harry and his fiancée USA actress Meghan Markle pose for a photograph in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in west London on November 27, 2017, following the announcement of their engagement.
Separately, Prince Harry confirmed the couple were an item last November in a Kensington Palace statement criticizing the "wave of abuse and harassment" his then-girlfriend had faced from media outlets.
The surge in interest in the coat caused the style to quickly sell out and crashed the Toronto-based knitwear label's website in some parts of the world, including in London.
"I had never watched Suits, I had never heard of Meghan before and I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her".

"The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was confirmation to me that all the stars were aligned, everything was just ideal", Harry said. The Suits star also said she's "very happy" about the engagement.
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com from her home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Roslyn Markle, the mother of Meghan's half-siblings, said: 'That's absolutely wonderful news.
Harry and Markle kept their relationship fairly secret until the prince proved his loyalty by blasting the hateful comments being directed towards his new love.
The two were rumored to be planning a "non-traditional wedding" - unlike the lavishly royal wedding where Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot.
"Very first time we met", the prince said.
"Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person", they said.
The wedding is expected to take place in spring 2018, with May considered the likeliest date for the nuptials. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for both parents.
However, writer Sally Bedell Smith, who has written a number of biographies on the royal family told Vanity Fair that Queen Elizabeth has an open-mind when it comes to the right match.
Ms Markle said she was not prepared for the level of attention their relationship would get.
Additional details about the upcoming royal wedding, such as the date and location, will be released in due time.
In 2011, she married film producer Trevor Engelson but they divorced two years later.More news: Lebanon under 'total control' of Hezbollah: Bahrain FM
