Duchess of Cambridge opts of 1940s look while Meghan Markle is all in moody blue at Sandringham

Royal fans were treated to a double helping of Duchess this morning as Kate and Meghan arrived together at Sandringham for the Christmas Day service – each sporting extremely different styles.

Side by side, Kate the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, 37, appeared to have put their reported differences aside as they strode toward the church with their husbands.

However, their choice of outfit could not have been further apart with Kate going for a classic look and Meghan choosing chic in items from Victoria Beckham’s clothing line.

An ever-stylish Kate cut a classic figure in a red dress coat with a burgundy collar and matching hat, teamed with gold accessories, gloves and a red Bayswater clutch by Mulberry. She wore dark tights and modest red Gianvito Rossi heels, appearing to be continuing with a forties era style. 

Recently the Duchess has appeared in A-line coats, shouldered jackets and mid-length skirts as she leads the pack for Royal fashion. 

The pregnant Duchess of Sussex however, opted for a much more modern outfit.

The Duchess who came in on Prince Harry’s arm took the unusual decision to wear all dark colours and high heeled black boots. 

She wore a double breasted tailored £2,250 coat from the VB line, as well as a pair of boots by David Beckham’s wife. The stylish Duchess also carried a £1,200 powder box bag by the Spice Girl turned designer.

However, she was matched perfectly with her husband who wore a lighter shade of blue.

The Duchess of Sussex may have a lot to learn from Prince William’s wife who has become a style icon.

Kate’s clothes fly off shelves of stores whenever she wears them.

Recently, she has opted for 40s and 50s style – and the fashion world is lapping it up.

Kate, 36, and Meghan, 37, were greeted by adoring crowds as they made their way to St Mary Magdalene Church, a short walk from Sandringham House on the Royal Family’s Norfolk estate.

Prince William, 36, and Harry, 34, joined their wives and the rest of the Royal Family as they put on a united front amid rumours of a ‘rift’ and mounting tensions between the two couples.

It was confirmed earlier this month that the ‘Fab Four’ were going to spend Christmas Day together despite claims of a falling out.

It began after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were moving out of Kensington Palace to live in Frogmore House in Windsor.

There were also reports of a falling out between Meghan and Kate during ­Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress fitting before the royal wedding earlier this year.

It was then hinted that the Cambridge’s would spend the day with the Middleton family in Berkshire, and Harry and Meghan would spend it with the Queen.

However Kensington Palace confirmed they would be celebrating the day together in what is expected to be a show of solidarity between the royals.
