While the Duchess of Cambridge, who was declared the UK’s most influential style icon of 2016, has caused many an outfit to sell out after wearing it, soon-to-be-royal Meghan, 36, is now be poised to do the same. Money-conscious Kate, 35, is known for dressing in high street fashion more than haute couture, and she’s not afraid to be pictured in the same outfit multiple times. She’s more conservative than trendy, but the dutchess always seems to hit the fashion mark. But is Meghan about to shake things up by bringing her sharp sense of style to the palace? Or will her style change now that she’s about to become royalty? Take a look below at the similarities and differences between Meghan and Kate’s style. Which do you prefer? Who has more style: Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle? THE WHITE COAT The $765 white “Mara” coat sold out within minutes after Meghan wore it for her official engagement photocall. The popular item will be reissued by the Canadian label Line in February, under a new name — “The Meghan”. Kate is also a fan of the white winter coat, wearing the chic colour on a number of occasions. Meghan Markle wore a white coat at the photocall for her engagement to Prince Harry.
