Wearing The Royal Pants! Kate Middleton Steals Meghan Markle’s Dressed Down Fashion Sense

Kate Middleton is apparently taking a page from sister-in-law Meghan Markle’s fashion folio and keeping it casual.

On Thursday, September 19 the Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise appearance at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

The 37-year-old wore a simple polka-dot blouse tucked into her trousers, as she visited the hospital’s Sunshine House, which serves as the children’s development center. There she met with the Family Nurse Partnership, a program for first-time parents and young families.

Middleton and Markle continue to rewrite the rule-book when it comes to British royal fashion, as insiders have noted that Markle, who has only been a member of the royal family for a little over a year, disagrees with some of the older, more established traditions, like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or skirts rather than trousers or pants.

Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, is busy with a fashion line of her own, and has recently returned from a controversial trip to New York, where she attended the Smart Works capsule collection launch, after months of collaborating with the organization.

The new Smart Works line is named the #TheSmartSet and is a five piece capsule collection that will equip the organization’s clients with the classic wardrobe pieces to help them feel confident at work.

The collection features a shirt, trousers, blazer, dress and tote bag. Notably absent: any type of dress, or skirt, and the Queen took notice of that, with an insider noting that the monarch was  “baffled” by Meghan and Prince Harry‘s recent lack of protocol.

Now she may have to focus her attention on Middleton, who before marrying Prince William and entering royalty in 2011, was perfectly happy relaxing in a comfy pair of jeans.
