If we are to believe this unnamed royal source, Kate's style isn't the only thing undergoing a revamp since the Sussex's exit. Kate’s make up artist, Arabella Preston, is now reportedly using "less eye makeup, paler lips colours and more high street nail polishes in less obvious shades. She wears far less makeup and looks happy, relaxed and sporting high street clothes."
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially switched on their 'out of office' as they prepare to begin their post-royal life in California with baby Archie. Their royal exit though has had a lasting effect on many aspects of the Royal Firm, including the Duchess of Cambridge.

According to a source close to Kate, the impact has been for the best in regards to her sartorial choices. "Someone who knows Kate well said 'the atmosphere since the Sussexes left has noticeably improved,'" a royal insider told The Sun. "Kate does not feel she has to compete now. She has gone back to a much simpler style. Kate feels very much more relaxed now."
The source claims that Kate felt pressure when constantly compared to her sister-in-law. "She most definitely went through a phase two years ago where she seemed slightly intimidated by Meghan," the source added. "She was afraid of comparisons being drawn between them and that Meghan was the one who looked glamorous and popular for a while."
