David Emanuel, one of the designers of Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress, said the newly-minted Duchess of Sussex is “making her mark” with her refreshing outfits.

Mr Emanuel described Meghan’s style as “chic and simple”, preferring to forego some of the more elaborate looks sported by sister-in-law Kate.

Speaking to Sky News, the fashion designer said: “She is refreshingly modern. If you saw the series Suits, when she was an actress it was very classy, very chic, very understated.

“Very shapely skirts and very clean, and that’s her look. She is not frills and flowers and she’s not lace and sequins. Very simple, very elegant and long may it reign.”

Despite his positive review of the Duchess’ style, Mr Emanuel suggested she might need to modernise more to fully catch up with the strict standards of the Royal wardrobe,

He continued: “She will have to slightly modernise to fit in with the Royal wardrobe. We’ve got press reports that she’s got to wear tights, she’s got to wear this and that.

“She is making her mark and I think she’s doing brilliantly.”

But Meghan fell short from the crown this year as the Duchess of Cambridge secured the title of Queen of the Royal style after data showed her maternity style when expecting Prince Louis had generated more online trawls on eBay than her sister-in-law.

In April, Jenny Packham searches more than doubled when Kate first appeared with Louis in a red smock dress by the designer.

In 2017 there was a 20 per cent rise in searches for Ms Packham and Kate’s other favourite designers Alexander McQueen and Seraphine, sometimes hitting 43 searches an hour.

Close second Meghan, who broke the royal fashion mould with her “messy” bun and bare legs, saw her style infl uence peak at her wedding to Prince Harry in May.

Rob Hattrell, eBay’s UK vice president, said: “While Meghan was clearly the focus of the fashion pages this year, Kate’s distinctive style has long been a hit with shoppers since her wedding in 2011.

“We always see an uptick in searches around landmark royal events, and 2018 was a bumper year, with both the birth of Prince Louis and Meghan and Harry’s wedding driving purchases across the nation.”
