Kate Middleton's outfit beats Meghan Markle's in cost by coming in at double the price
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle stepped out looking pretty fashionable but the former managed to shine brighter than the latter.
The Duchess of Cambridge appeared in public wearing a more expensive look than the Duchess of Sussex, who is usually the one showing off her wealth.
Middleton put Markle to shame by wearing a purple Oscar de la Renta suit, which reportedly costs around $3,500, to the Royal Opera House.

DRESSED TO IMPRESS
The world has gotten used to seeing the 37-year-old sporting quite modest ensembles, but this time she didn't pull any punches, not even with her accessories.
Aside from the expensive suit, Middleton carried a $640 Aspinal handbag and ditched the comfortable shoes for a pair of black Rupert Sanderson stilettos worth $679.

MARKLE'S FASHION TWIST
Although the whole look was already quite expensive, the Duchess of Cambridge completed it with a pair of 18K gold Asprey Oak Leaf earrings, which she has worn on several occasions and cost $6,470.
Markle, on the other hand, opted for a simpler and elegant look; the mother-to-be made her way to the Mayhew Animal Home sporting a $32 cream dress from H&M.
STILL LOOKING FABULOUS
She wore the dress under an Armani coat, which is estimated to cost almost $2600, and matched it with a $680 pair of cream sling backs designed by Paul Andrew.
Just like Middleton, Markle also carried a little handbag with her, but instead of Aspinal, the Duchess of Sussex opted for a Stella McCartney piece, worth $1,050.

THE ROYAL BABY'S GENDER
It might have surprised some people to see Markle walking in high heels while being six months pregnant, but the Duchess didn't seem uncomfortable during her visit to Mayhew Animal Home.

The new Royal baby is expected to be born in April, but as soon as the world found out that Markle was pregnant, people have tried to guess its gender.
Recently, during an outing with Prince Harry in Birkenhead, the expecting mother was asked if she already knew if it was a boy or a girl but she simply said that they didn't because they wanted it to be a surprise.
