Kate Middleton's Latest Look Was Clearly Inspired By Meghan Markle

Over the years, Kate Middleton has developed her own classic look that quite often causes items — from shoes to dresses — to sell out in stores, according to Hello! magazine. The Princess of Wales has a keen fashion sense and has often been inspired by other members of the royal family when it comes to creating her own personal style. For example, she has honored her husband's late mother, Princess Diana, whom she's never previously met, on more than one occasion, sometimes choosing clothing and accessories that mirror things that Diana previously wore. In fact, some of Kate's most memorable outfits have been reminiscent of Diana's wardrobe and are often highlighted by the press. In September, the princess wore a red L.K. Bennett "Spencer" coat during a trip to Wales. According to Page Six, Diana also wore a red coat during her first visit to the country as princess. 

On October 5, Kate visited the Royal Surrey County Hospital where she met with new parents, according to People. She chose a yellow dress for the event as well as an accessory that appears to have been inspired by her sister-in-law, Meghan Markle.

Kate Middleton's earrings were from a designer fancied by Meghan Markle

For her solo outing at Royal Surrey County Hospital, Kate Middleton radiated in a brightly-hued dress designed by British label Karen Millen. According to Page Six, the Structured Crepe Forever Pleat Belted Midi Dress retails for $300. The Princess of Wales paired the look with a pair of black pumps and a matching clutch, but there was one accessory that seemed to get even more attention. The Daily Mail reports that Kate's earrings were actually from a brand that is beloved by the Duchess of Sussex. Kate's earrings, created by British designer Emily Mortimer, featured a small hoop with a teardrop dangle and were covered in pavé diamonds. The simple, yet elegant earrings perfectly complimented Kate's overall look as she met with mothers and even held a newborn. 

Overall, Kate's time at the hospital was a success. "She was very relatable. She talked a lot about how it felt for her when she became a mother," deputy director of midwifery Amy Stubbs told People magazine. "She was just delightful. She spent a lot of time talking to a lot of the staff and meeting mums and dadas and new babies across the whole service. It was a really joyful for everyone to have that opportunity and hugely validating for us as a service for her to take the time out to visit us," Stubbs added.
