Did Meghan Markle inspire Kate Middleton's latest look?


We have no doubt that Kate Middleton - a seasoned royal - has been showing Meghan Markle the ropes over the past few months, with the actress explaining in her engagement interview that the Duchess of Cambridge had been "wonderful". It becomes part of your lifestyle, doesn't it?

"It's great in so many contexts, but it's also being able to monitor your own use of it as well, which is great", she added.

Kate was visiting the Reach Academy Feltham in west London when she made the comments to a group of teenage students.

"The school works with the children's mental health charity Place2Be, a subject close to the Duchess" heart, and she was met inside by pupils aged four-18 singing Nina Simone's hit "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free".

Place2Be helps children experiencing issues such as bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, family breakdown, neglect and trauma.

The 36-year-old is pregnant with her third child and was spotted wearing one of her favourite maternity dresses. Kate spoke to parents who have benefited from the charity's services and the Academy's parenting support.

And really, it's no surprise Kate was there to lend her support. She was dressed in a Seraphine floral maternity dress that she wore twice publicly when pregnant with Princess Charlotte, Daily Mail reports, teamed with navy Hobbs coat and navy pumps.

Ed Vainker, principal of Reach Academy, said he believed that teachers must work closely with families if children were to get the most out of school.

"I think she enjoyed it".
