A celebrity stylist and TV host, Karen Williams is recognisable thanks to her This Morning appearances, and her hosting on Netflix and Channel 5 make-under shows 100% Hotter and Celebrity 100% Hotter. The stylist, who has dressed the likes of Beyonce, discussed Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s style with Express.co.uk.
She told readers: “Like Kate, Meghan exercises the same types of fashion rules – classic, modern, elegant.
“She does push her style a tad more than Kate though – this is in line with her personality.”
Meghan’s style staples include menswear-inspired pieces, such as the simple white shirt.
She also leans towards sharp wool coats, and chic ballet flats and pointed-toe stilettoes.
The Duchess also likes to wear shorter hems and shift style dresses, showing off the legs she is reported to have told her agent were “as long as a mile”.

Meghan Markle’s favourite designers
The Duchess’s wardrobe is full of designer looks, with Meghan showing her high-end purchases on Instagram before she met the Prince.
Meghan chose the French brand Givenchy to create her wedding dress for her chapel ceremony. The bright white bateau look caused conversations across the world.
She then chose the designer for her first-ever solo engagement with the Queen – a huge milestone for any new royal.
One of Meghan’s style icons, Audrey Hepburn, was a huge fan of the brand.
The British designer created Meghan’s second wedding dress, a high neck halter neck design with a flirty low back.
The royal is often seen re-wearing her favourite shoes from Aquazzura, a shoe brand made in Italy.
Carolina is famous for old-fashioned, 50s inspired, ladylike looks.
Meghan is usually dripping in jewellery, with precious trinkets making up part of her unique fashion blueprint.
She wrote about purchasing her own Cartier Francaise watch after bagging her role in Suits.
She now owns a similar watch, once in Princess Diana’s private collection and was gifted a pair of huge Cartier diamond earrings and a diamond tennis bracelet by Prince Charles.
As for Kate Middleton’s favourite designers, Karen said: “Kate doesn’t just go for high-end designers.
“You can often find her exact dresses on the higher end of the high street. Keep an eye out for the sales.”
“Needle and Thread, The Vampire’s Wife and Self Portrait are all some of Kate’s Favourite designers,” Karen said.
“All of them share the same elegant, feminine, and modern feel that work for her body type.”
