Kate’s nod to Meghan as she steps out in blazer and black flares

The Duchess of Cambridge seems to be taking style inspiration from her sister-in-law Meghan Markle as she showed off a smart and stylish look today.

Kate looked very modern as she stepped off the plane at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus wearing a pair of smart black flared trousers, a cream top and a green blazer.

While we see Kate in jeans regularly at less formal events, the Duchess normally favours skirts and dresses at smarter occasions.

Her sister-in-law Meghan on the other hand is a big fan of trousers and has worn flares and suits to a number of engagements.

Fashion experts believe Kate was wearing the appropriately named Smythe Duchess Wool Blazer, which costs £576.

The bag is thought to be from LK Bennett London.

It was also a new hairstyle for the Duchess who opted for a half-up half-down look with a lot of volume on the top.

Kate and William were in the country to meet service personnel who will be away from their families for Christmas.

They were given a guided tour of the base before William gave a speech speaking of his admiration for the sacrifices they are making for their country.

Yesterday the couple hosted a Christmas party at Kensington Palace for the families of the people stationed at the base.

Kate gave a speech at the event, speaking about how she missed William when he was away during his time in the RAF.

She said: "As someone who’s husband has served, I know hard it feels when a loved one leaves home for the job they trained for.

"When William served in the Falklands or with Search and Rescue, I remember how it felt. But I can’t imagine how it feels when your loved ones are away on active service.

"The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year."
