A brand-new piece especially for the Dublin trip, Meghan had forgotten to remove some of the bag’s packaging.
Watching the Duchess closely, eagle-eyed fans spotted that she had left the plastic packaging on the handbag’s protective studs.
In her haste to make it from London to Dublin in good time, the Duchess forgot to remove the plastic covering.
The brown leather tote bag was from Scottish luxury accessories brand Strathberry, and retails for £475.

Meghan is reported to own the tote bag in at least two colours, tan and a combination of burgundy, navy and vanilla.
Meghan first carried the bag on a visit to Edinburgh earlier this year.
Despite the blunder, Meghan still managed to tick all the fashion boxes, looking elegant and chic in her slinky green ensemble.
