Kate Middleton has reportedly taken more noticeable fashion risks as her 10th year as a member of the royal family approaches. An increase in her confidence that became noticeable after Prince Louis's birth.


April 2021 makes it ten years since Kate Middleton became a member of the British royal family via her marriage to Prince William. As the significant milestone approaches, a royal expert has opened up about the duchess' evolving style.

Speaking to People Magazine, author Bethan Holt revealed why the Duchess of Cambridge has been making waves with her recent fashion styles and how she has become more confident with taking risks over the years.

Holt explained that Kate started off her fashion journey as a royal cautiously, feeling conscious about her position in the family. However, as the duchess took on more responsibilities, her style became more expressive. In her words:


"She's always been very ladylike, elegant, and put-together, but she has really polished up her appearance over the last three years."


The fashion editor noted that Kate's love for risks became evident after Prince Louis' birth in 2018. At his christening, Kate turned heads in an embellished headband by Jane Taylor that sparked a millinery trend on fashion walkways.

Earlier this week, Prince William and Kate kicked off their tour of Ireland.


In the months after, the duchess made impressive statements during public outings. During her October visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Kate donned a midi-length tweed dress by Erdem that featured an off-shoulder neckline.


Another noticeable fashion risk that the duchess has taken in the past three years happened during her visit to a children's center in Lambeth, London. For the first time, Kate switched things up for an official outing and wore trousers.


The mother-of-three paired the black wide-legged pant trousers with an elegant lilac pussy-bow top from Gucci. She finished off the look with a matching lilac handle bag from Aspinal London and black heels.

The blouse which the duchess has repeated has caused an uproar on social media as fans are convinced that Kate wears it backward. While the royal likes to place the buttons in front, models on Gucci's website are seen with the buttons behind.



Earlier this week, Prince William and Kate kicked off their tour of Ireland. In celebration of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day, the couple visited the Gravity bar at the Guinness Storehouse to experience the legendary beer.

For the outing, the 39-year-old turned heads in a metallic emerald dress that paid tribute to the country's color. The midi-dress designed by The Vampire's Wife featured sheer sleeves and pleats at the sleeves and skirt.
