- Meghan Markle became an instant fashion icon after her engagement to Prince Harry.
- Her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, has been hugely influential in shaping fashion over the past decade.
- The two have very different styles. As the royal wedding has now come and gone, we took a look at how they match up.
All eyes have been on Meghan Markle in the days before and after the royal wedding.
Since news broke that Markle was dating Prince Harry, her profile skyrocketed, and she became an international fashion icon. It’s a role that only one other woman in recent memory can directly identify with — her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
It’s rare for the royals to speak their minds in public. That goes double for Middleton and Markle. As women in the spotlight, anything they do can spark backlash. As a result, fashion can provide a way for them to express themselves.
As Markle prepared to marry Harry, we found ourselves wondering how she would compare to Middleton when it comes to fashion. And, with the wedding in the rearview mirror, our fascination with figuring out how Markle will both compare and differentiate herself has only grown.
