Meghan Markle famously chose a chunky Victoria Beckham knit for one of her engagement photos with Prince Harry, but there's a reason we never see her in the designer's dresses.

According to the Daily Mail, in a resurfaced interview the then actress gave to Glamour before her relationship with now husband Prince Harry was made public, Meghan said she avoids certain shapes because she doesn't have the "long torso" they require.

So while the Duchess of Sussex, 37, who is now expecting her first baby, invited the Spice Girl turned fashion mogul to her wedding in May, we're unlikely to see her in a VB dress any time soon - even though she said at the time she "loves" her designs.

Speaking in a past interview with Glamour, Meghan, who is 5ft6ins, admitted she feels her torso isn't long enough to wear certain dresses.

Talking about how she chooses her outfits, she said at the time: "What I'm starting to learn is, even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn't mean they're going to look amazing on me.

"For example I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don't have the long torso to support that silhouette."

Explaining her daily go-to outfits during the interview, Meghan also admitted she usually wore shift dresses, pumps and cropped jackets, adding that she had started to wear longer dresses as she grew older.

Avoiding prints, the former Suits star also revealed she had a tendency to coordinate her outfits by sticking to one colour, discussing her love for tonal dressing.

But despite not being able to wear the designer's dresses, in February Vanity Fair reported that Meghan was turning to Victoria for style tips.

A source close to them, said: "They get along well and have been in touch recently. Meghan really likes Victoria's style and was keen to pick her brains about pulling together a working wardrobe."

Earlier this year Victoria attended Meghan's wedding in one of her own designs- a calf-length navy dress from her pre-spring/summer 2019 collection, paired with orange heels.

"I love a bit of navy,' she explained. 'The dress is one of my favourites: it isn't in store until November, but we've had so many inquiries about it that I'm seeing whether I can bring it forward."

The designer also said she approved of Meghan's £200,000 wedding dress, designed by Givenchy's Claire Waight Keller, saying she looked "absolutely beautiful."
