Whatever Kate Middleton wears turns to gold and Meghan Markle is having the same effect since joining the British royal family. For her engagement, she stepped out in a white overcoat produced by a Canadian brand named Line the Label. After countless rushed to the retailer’s website upon seeing the image, the homepage crashed from the unexpected traffic caused by people trying to get their hands on the jackets, despite them not being sold online.
