Royal fans are always quick to copy the looks of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.
Both royals are known for wearing pieces that are fashionable and often share meaningful messages.A new study by global fashion brand, PrettyLittleThing, analysed how much interest there is in the fashion of the royals.
The study was conducted by reviewing search volumes in the UK and US.
Over the last year, there has been an increase in demand to know about the looks worn by royals such as Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Princess Anne and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.The number of searches for Meghan and Kate have also increased as fans are eager to steal their style.
The Duchess of Sussex has kept a fairly low profile over the last year after stepping back as a working royal and moving to Los Angeles with Prince Harry and their son, Archie.
Kate’s looks are still popular with searches increasing by 84 percent in the last year.
Sophie Wessex, Princess Anne and Camilla’s outfits had a bigger increase in search than both Meghan and Kate, which the report discussed.
Meghan also came out top on as the most “iconic” royal for style with her looks searched thousands of times, the data showed.
Any outfits worn by the Duchesses will often sell out quickly as fans want to copy their style. Commenting on Kate’s looks, a fashion expert explained why they may be desired so much.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, editor of British Style Society Natasha Henson stated Kate wears items that are accessible to many.
The expert said: “Kate often opts for comfortable yet stylish casual attire to fit her role as a young royal and a hands-on mother.
“These elements may indicate that although she is a prominent public figure, she still likes to feel relaxed yet fashionable whether she’s attending an event or enjoying a family day out.”
The mother-of-three is also happy to rewear her favourite looks on multiple occasions.
Natasha added: “Kate appears to have understated confidence in her style choices and chooses pieces that represent her position as a positive role model.
She also isn’t afraid to re-wear statement pieces.”
