Fashion expert and author Elizabeth Holmes claimed that Kate Middleton certainly stepped up her style game when Meghan Markle tied the knot with Prince Harry in 2018.
Elizabeth Holmes recently appeared on Us Weekly's series "Royally Us" to promote her new book, titled "HRH So Many Thoughts on Royal Style," which was published on November 17.
During the interview, Holmes told the news outlet: "I think Kate kicked up her fashion game in the fall of 2018, certainly after the royal wedding of Harry and Megan."

"Kate had just had Louie and she went away on maternity leave for a couple months," Holmes added, "and came back and suddenly had a little bit more fashion in her wardrobe."
Holmes admitted that it is not possible to assume what inspired Kate to improve her fashion game. However, she said it was absolutely interesting timing because Kate did that when Markle came around.
And she appreciates the Duchess of Cambridge, who has raised the bar with regards to the "Royal" style, sort of stepped up her game, the fashion expert explained.
Kate, who is a fashion icon in her own right, keeps her everyday looks more comfortable and accessible when she is not donning designer gowns and formal evening wear, according to Good Housekeeping.
The doting wife of Prince William had memorable fashion moments. In August 2020, she wore a white shirtdress while visiting Baby Basic UK & Baby Basics Sheffield. At the time, Kate wore a liberty print face mask when she entered the charity, according to Town&Country.
Some avid fans of the royals claimed that two of Kate's outfit choices in October 2020 have broken royal protocol.

In June 2020, Kate visited Fakenham Garden Centre in Norfolk. For the occasion, the Duchess wore a light blue button-down shirt. She paired the look with skinny black jeans and green sneakers.
While hosting a gala dinner at Buckingham Palace in March 2020, Kate looked stunning in a sparkling, long-sleeved gown. The occasion marked the 25th anniversary of the organization called Place2Be.
In February 2020, Kate arrived at the London Stadium in Stratford to visit a SportsAid event. The Duchess wore an all-green athleisure ensemble for the occasion. She accessorized herself with a necklace.
In December 2019, Kate, whose charity works focus mainly on young children's issues, addiction, and art, attended Christmas Day services at Sandringham, wearing a chic gray coat with dark green accessories.
In October 2019, Kate sported a green tunic over trousers. She paired the look with a scarf and earrings. At the time, the Duchess met with Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Meanwhile, some avid fans of the royals claimed that two of Kate's outfit choices in October 2020 have broken royal protocol. When she met the finalists of the Hold Still photography project, Kate wore a navy pantsuit with a pale blue shirt.
She also wore trousers when she visited the University of Derby. Apparently, the Queen is said to not be a fan of trousers.
