All royal women are required to wear tights to official public occasions, according to a new report. This includes Kate Middleton and will include Meghan Markle once she marries Prince Harry.
The ‘Meghan Markle Effect ‘ is sweeping the globe sending her go-to garments and accessories flying from the shelves. But it’s hardly surprising, as the royal-to-be is following in future sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge ‘s footsteps with her every sartorial move victim to the camera lens. And a headline, two Instagram snaps and a shopping article later, her latest get-up manages sells out faster than the last. Whether it’s a Strathberry bag on the crook of her arm or a bell-sleeved knit fresh from the high street, there’s no trend the nation won’t buy into. But with a penchant for uber-cool labels and a soft spot for homegrown brands, the 36-year-old is undoubtedly reinventing the wheel when it comes to royal fashion. By swapping evening gowns for slick suits and eschewing the traditional clutch in favour of handbag heavyweight Chloé, the royal-to-be is bringing a whole new meaning to upper class fashion one label at a time. And with four public sell-out engagement looks already under her belt, it’s hard to believe the royal-in-waiting wasn’t born into the Monarchy. From androgynous suiting to rule-breaking accessories, here’s how Meghan Markle is shaking up the fashion agenda over at Buckingham Palace.

The Duchess of Cambridge may be renowned for her innate sense of style but the royal tour of Norway and Sweden proved the perfect opportunity for the 36-year-old to demonstrate her sartorial powers on a global scale. From fairy tale-inspired gowns to sell-out Chanel, the Duchess of Cambridge proved she’s one of the best-dressed royals to have graced the history books but how much did her designer-laden wardrobe cost?
The Duchess stepped out of her comfort zone in a caped gown, while Meghan Markle wore a slick menswear-inspired suit.
Meghan Markle made an appearance with Prince Harry on Thursday night while wearing a chic Alexander McQueen tuxedo. Meanwhile in Oslo, her future sister-in-law Kate Middleton stunned in a beautiful semi-sheer caped dress by the same designer.
The 36-year-old royal paired an expensive Chanel handbag with a Catherine Walker red, houndstooth coat on day two of her royal tour of Sweden.
Currently in her third trimester, the duchess is abroad on a four-day tour of Sweden and Norway with husband Prince William.
The Duchess of Cambridge will likely keep a low profile in the weeks leading up to the birth of the third royal baby, who is due in April. The Express reports that the royal-to-be and her fiancé Prince Harry might replace the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at this year's Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). The biannual conference will take place in London on April 16, which is just a few weeks ahead of the royal wedding.
While we still have a few months to wait until the new British royal arrival, we can treat our baby fever with some adorable pix of this royal duo.

There’s no denying the Duchess of Cambridge ‘s hold over the fashion industry. The ‘ Kate Effect ‘ has been in full swing ever since the royal fell into the media spotlight as a fresh-faced twenty-something. And it was the 36-year-old’s now-famous blue Issa dress (which she donned in her engagement photographs) that secured her position as one of the world’s most respected style muses. With an innate ability to crash endless shopping pages of the Internet (and almost send one label under) – the royal’s sartorial influence is incomparable. And perhaps what draws so many women to lust over her wardrobe, is the notion that it is just so darn relatable. When the Duchess of Cambridge isn’t sitting prim enjoying afternoon tea with the Queen , she’s donning Topshop’s latest line or sending us potty over Zara’s current must-have. Yes, it turns out Kate is just like us. And when it comes to championing the high street, the 36-year-old gives the royal touch.
