Our dear Kate Middleton has been in the spotlight for around a decade now, and over this period of time, we've all gotten quite used to her classic duchess style. Kate usually steps out in elegant dresses, classic coat styles, and the occasional skinny jean. She's pretty much worn it all, but there's a style that this duchess rarely (if ever) wears ... until now. 

  • Yup -- Kate Middleton stepped out in full business attire when she and Prince William arrived in Cyprus.

    Wide-leg pants, blazer, belt ... the whole works! Now, there's no denying that Kate looks amazing here, but we're definitely not used to seeing her in this type of outfit.

  • There is, however, another duchess who is very fond of this suited-up style ...

    That's right -- Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex has caused quite a stir with her many pantsuit-type outfits, which unofficially go against royal protocol. However, it looks like Meghan is more of a trendsetter than we originally thought, because now apparently even experienced royal Kate Middleton is taking notes.

  • Kate's power suit outfit definitely comes as a surprise, but it might be safe to say that the duchess has been slowly inching toward this change.

    She stepped out in this pant and blazer combo back in October (around the same time Meghan was also wearing her business-wear), so maybe the duchess has been wanting to adopt some elements of her sister-in-law's style for a while.

    There has also been some speculation that Kate is trying to amp up her own personal style game to compete with Meghan. Although we don't like to believe that there's any sort of feuding going on between the duchesses, this latest outfit from Kate might give that particular rumor some validity. 

    Kind of suspicious that Kate is suddenly a fan of blazers now that Meghan has made them a royal staple, don't you think?

  • As strange as it is to see Kate in this kind of ensemble, we have to say, it's definitely working for her.

    We approve of corporate Kate. Keep the business pants coming, Mrs. Cambridge!
