To the delight of the world, the engagement photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been released for everyone to enjoy on December 21. Of course, the royal engagement photos are always adorable (see: Duchess Kate and Prince William’s engagement photos), however, there were a couple of pretty distinguishable differences between the two couples.
Firstly, the outfit choices for Meghan compared to Kate were wildly different. For the royal engagement photos, Markle’s look was noticeably more glamorous. She donned a black Ralph and Russo gown (which is worth $75,000 in case you are wondering) with a full tulle skirt and sheer, silver beaded bodice with long sleeves.
In another photo, she looked more casual, wearing a cream Victoria Beckham sweater. The other difference between the two couples’ photos is that Markle and Prince Harry’s photos are markedly more sultry, whereas Prince William and Duchess Kate’s engagement photos are more professional and poised.
In her royal engagement photos, the Duchess wore a cream Reiss shift dress with ruffled detail. The dress sparked such a craze that the label re-released the dress in a later collection to accommodate the demand. The differences in style can also be witnessed in their first royal outing outfits, with Markle choosing sleek and modern separates while Middleton opted for a more feminine and demure dress coat and prim accessories.
It appears that Markle is living out her princess dreams and taking us along for the ride! But there was one beautiful similarity between the two royally-betrothed ladies (apart from their glowing smiles).
That is their beautiful, glossy blowouts. Both ladies opted to leave their bouncy brunette manes flowing free, instead of restricting them to an updo for the royal engagement photos. The look is more carefree and fairy-tale like.
Although Markle may be choosing an edgier twist on the classic royal style while Middleton opts for the more timeless pieces, we can definitely rely on both ladies for our royal style inspirations.
