Kate Middleton Just Wore a Totally Unexpected Outfit

Kate Middleton raised some fashion eyebrows today on her visit to Cyprus’s new military recreation facility.

The 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge donned high-waisted wide-legged trousers that put out all the Meghan Markle vibes to fete the facility’s opening. Middleton very rarely wears slacks and typically opts for dresses and skirts, which makes this a surprising choice for her.

She accessorized the chic now-sold-out Jigsaw pants with a white long-sleeve top, an olive clutch ($152) and heels ($295) from L.K. Bennett and a waist-cinching belt. The mom of three topped the look off with the aptly named Duchess wool blazer from Smythe ($695).

We’re filing this away as proof that Meghan Markle isn’t the only one who can push the royal fashion envelope.
