In general, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have different senses of style. Each woman is fabulously fashionable in her own right, but the Duchess of Cambridge tends to go for clothes that are understated, elegant, and timeless, where the Duchess of Sussex takes more sartorial risks and isn't afraid to infuse a sense of Hollywood edginess into her wardrobe. 

But we've gotta say: Now that Meghan Markle is expecting her first baby with Prince Harry, her clothing has become much more similar to Kate's -- with her own stamp, of course. 

When she first joined the royal family, Meghan Markle was noticeably more "trendy" than other royal ladies. Of course, the duchess always looked incredibly classy, but thanks to her Los Angeles roots, Meghan's style stood out as much more bold and laid back than the fashion of Kate Middleton, or even Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, and Zara Phillips. 

Now, though? Something's changed. 

Throughout her pregnancy, Meghan has managed to stay as stylish as ever, but along the way, her clothes have gotten slightly less "California chic" and more royal. Perhaps this is just what she's comfortable with right now, or perhaps, as a mother-to-be, she's undergoing a style shift -- whatever it is, though, Meghan is definitely reminding us of Kate Middleton more than ever. And we're into it.

    If this green shift dress isn't reminiscent of something Kate would wear, not sure what is. It could've come from the duchess's closet!

    Kate's dress may be more of an olive hue than Meghan's, but it's eerily similar just the same. Hey, the woman has good taste.
