Kate Middleton has become the glue that holds the royal family together, a role model to many, a fashion icon with her impeccable yet often affordable, stylish pieces that she wears.
Despite Duchess of Cambridge‘s efforts, Meghan Markle has managed to beat her and take the title of the “most iconic” member of the British royal family.
According to a recent study of online data collected in the UK and US by PrettyLittleThing, Meghan Markle holds the crown for being the most search royal.
The team working on the matter found that the Duchess of Sussex‘s outfits had been searched for 148,550 times.
Meanwhile, there were 145,400 searches for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge‘s clothes.
The brand called Prince William and Prince Harry‘s respective wives trendsetters who have the ability to have the outfits that they wear sell out in minutes.
Editor of British Style Society Natasha Henson explained why Kate Middleton’s style is copied by fans by saying: “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.”
Henson 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.”
The Duchess of Cambridge brought her fashion sense to Orkney after leaving Edinburgh by helicopter with The Duke this week.
They had been visiting Scotland’s capital amid mounting pressure for a new referendum on independence and left early on Tuesday morning to arrive at their next stop, the Orkney Islands.
Taking a trip to Kirkwall on the island, Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Balfour Hospital and spoke with NHS staff about what they have experienced over the past 12 months during the coronavirus pandemic.
The hospital opened two years ago as a replacement to the previous facility, which had been there for almost a century.
The upgrades mean that people living in Orkney can now receive most healthcare treatments at home rather than traveling to the Scottish mainland.
The Cambridges also visited the European Marine Energy Centre, which was founded in 2003 and supports the UK’s green recovery as well as helping to fight climate change.
The Duchess of Cambridge once again impressed royal fans with her impeccable style, as she paired a camel coat and coordinated wide-leg trousers with a tartan scarf.
She arrived in Scotland on Monday to join her husband, Prince William, who had been there since last Friday.
Before heading to Orkney, the future king and queen were staying at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official Scottish residence of the monarch.
They returned to London on Thursday this week, after hosting a special drive-in experience for NHS staff, which will screen Disney film Cruella.
They also visited the social care charity Turning Point Scotland, which provides assistance to people who are homeless.
The exact details of their week-long trip were kept tightly under wraps, but they also took a trip to St Andrews University, where they first met while studying two decades ago.
