Kate Middleton Takes A Style Cue From Meghan Markle

THERE'S no slowing down for the Duchess of Cambridge who's ramping up her royal duties despite having just returned from maternity leave.

After easing back into royal life this week with a low-key trip to a school (ZARA biker jeans and trusty leather boots in toe), Kate went formal once more overnight.

It's the third royal event for the Duchess in a matter of days after she and her husband Prince William attended the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London on Tuesday.

For her appearance, Middleton wore a lavender Emilia Wickstead dress and carried a crocodile Aspinal of London handbag, accessorizing her ensemble with nude pumps, silver earrings and a matching necklace.

The Erdem dress worn by the Duchess last night was originally shown on the catwalk as part of the British brand's SS18 collection inspired by the Queen's 1950s wardrobe.

Kate has a long-standing preference for carrying clutches, or else nothing at all, which helps to discourage people from reaching for her hand to shake.

But while her styling can't be faulted, it was her bag that caught our attention.

Stepping out on Wednesday evening in central London at the Victoria & Albert Museum, the 36-year-old wore an Erdem dress.

The boatneck has become one of Meghan's signature looks, with fashion experts previously revealing how the neckline allows her to be "subtly sexy" while maintaining royal protocol. "It never gets tucked under an arm or placed on the ground or table".

'Kate's usual look is high or square necked items that are more classic in style and cut.

She also attended the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle on May 19.
