Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Have a Key Fashion Designer in Common

  • July 25, 2023

Kate, the Princess of Wales, and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, have crossed fashion paths at regular intervals over the past six years, with the royal sisters-in-law both looking to the same brands and designers to outfit them for their public appearances.

Over the years, both have repeatedly returned to the same style leader, French fashion designer Roland Mouret. Whether it be for a red carpet, a royal tour or, most recently, a world class sporting event, Wimbledon, Mouret’s classic and elegant clothes have fit the bill for both Kate and Meghan.

Mouret was born in 1961 and studied fashion in Paris before going on to found his own design house in the 1990s. Kate first publicly wore a Mouret creation in 2013, just two-years after her marriage to Prince William, debuting a cream longline gown with long sleeves and a split skirt for the London premiere of the movie, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

In subsequent years Kate has worn a number of Mouret pieces, including more recently a striking monochrome gown for the premiere of Top Gun: Maverick in London, a soft tailored plum colored pant suit for a day of engagements during a visit to Boston, and a green asymmetric day dress for the Wimbledon championships.

Meghan too has been a long-time fan of the designer, and the pair were photographed together at a private dinner in Toronto, Canada, back in 2016, before she met future husband Prince Harry.

Kate Middleton kicked off six days in a row of coronation fashion with a bright red coat Eponine. On Friday, the day before the coronation, she wore a white Jenny Packham dress, then changed into blue Self-Portrait dress for receptions at Buckingham Palace for commonwealth leaders and foreign guests, respectively. For coronation day, she opted for a white Alexander McQueen dress with a red and blue cape (complete with a bespoke floral headpiece).

On Sunday, the Princess of Wales was spotted in a blue Reiss blazer and white top for a Coronation Big Lunch in the morning, and a red McQueen suit for the Coronation Concert night. She ended the streak of coronation looks with two light blue outfits, the first a blue Really Wild blouse for volunteering (on Monday) and the second a matching Elie Saab top and skirt set for a garden party at Buckingham Palace (on Tuesday). let’s rethink this lead– if we come in with a laundry list of everything she wore, we lose readers before they even start the story.

Throughout it all, the Princess of Wales was making her message clear with her outfit choices: She demonstrating, quite literally, her patriotism—embracing what many have coined “flag dressing” as she wore the colors of the Union Jack for the festivities surrounding her father-in-law’s coronation. Seven out of the eight outfits, too, were sourced from British brands (the one exception being Lebanese designer Elie Saab).

This is not the Princess of Wales’s first time sticking to a red, white, and blue
