Meghan Markle is proving to be 'very different' to Kate Middleton and is no longer being 'held back by the Palace', according to an expert.

Both Duchesses have sent royal fans into frenzy with recent glammed-up looks at public appearances.

In September, Kate dazzled in a gold Jenny Packman gown at the premiere of No Time To Die, and at this month's Salute to Freedom Gala Meghan turned heads with a beautiful red ballgown.

Daena Borrowman, Marketing Manager at jewellerybox, has now explained how Meghan's rift with the Royal Family has allowed her to shine at such events, reports the Express.

She explained: "Now, with no Palace dress code to hold her back, the Duchess has been able to really re-embrace her spectacular sense of style."

Daena added that long before her induction into the Royal Family, Suits actress Meghan was known for her support of feminist causes and has been able to continue this with the clothes she wears now.

Her New York wardrobe, thought to be worth more than £60,000, has made headlines for "all the right reasons", with the Salute to Freedom Gala dress being her most impactful outfit yet in Daena's opinion.

Design Bundles told the Express that internet searches for 'red dress' jumped by 75% in the UK on November 13, two days after the Duchess of Sussex showcased her red Carolina Herrera gown at the event.

However, after Kate's appearance at the James Bond premiere, searches for 'gold dress' spiked by 92%.

Regarding the two women, Daena said: "The Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex are two very different women, both of whom can hold their own in the public spotlight.

“While Duchess Kate, once a commoner, has had to be trained on her public image since stepping into the Royal Family, Duchess Meghan’s former career in show business and lifelong exposure to the media has, in a way, equipped her for royal life from the get-go.

“Both Duchesses can switch from the glitziest gowns to smart business looks with the same grace and both Duchesses wield the power to cause the items of clothing that they are wearing to sell out worldwide in minutes."

A spokesperson for Design Bundles explained that Kate is known for wearing "regal yet exquisitely understated" clothes, which may explain the higher spike in searches.

They added that the stunning outfit on the night may have caused many of us to register "that we were looking at the future Queen Consort of England" for the first time.
