Kate Middleton Takes Style Cues From Meghan Markle For Her Final Public Appearance

She’s due to give birth in April

It’s her last day of ‘work’ before she goes on maternity leave, and pregnant Kate Middleton celebrated with a more casual look than usual: she wore black skinny jeans in place of her usual maternity-dress-and-coat combo.

It’s a style switch-up that’s sparked speculation the Duchess is taking fashion advice from her future sister-in-law Meghan Markle, who has worn black cigarette pants to most of her royal occasions so far.

Kate teamed her black jeans with a floral Hobbs top, Goat cream coat and – impressive for a woman eight months’ pregnant – black suede Jimmy Choo heels.
