Ever since Meghan Markle stepped out with Prince Harry for the Invictus Games in Toronto, looking effortlessly cool in ripped jeans and a white shirt, we've been desperate to covet her look. However, for Katie Sturino, the plus-sized blogger behind The 12ish Style, you definitely don’t have to be marrying into the royal family to look like a princess.

Katie thinks that Meghan's chic looks are for everyone, which is why she's included the future royal bride on her celebrity #SupersizeTheLook series on her Instagram – and looks amazing. She told HELLO! that she created the idea to "show women of all sizes they can pull off celebrity styles". Naturally, there's few women more in the spotlight than Ms Markle, we recognise some of her most chic looks from out and about with her fiancé, Prince Harry. She's rocked Meghan's chic two-tone J.Crew coat, her casual double-denim look, and camel pencil skirt. And we think she looks more super-star than super-size!

Katie revealed she dresses differently to Meghan in her normal life, telling us: "My personal style is a bit more edgy and colorful, but Meghan is working within the confines of being a Royal so everything has to be a bit more subdued. I think she is doing a great job of looking fresh while not going over the top."

So if, like us, you’ve thought her outfits sometimes look readier for the runway than they do for our non-royal wardrobes, then think again. Just because you don't have a royal hubby-to-be and a personal trainer, there’s no reason not to go regal with your looks. And if Katie can dress like a princess, then we’re definitely giving it a go. Just maybe skip the tiara for office-wear, though.

But it’s not just royal looks that Katie pulls off in plus-size, as Meghan isn’t the only celeb's style that Katie has replicated – you can also find her dressing (and slaying) as Reese Witherspoon, Bella Hadid, and Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley. Check out her Instagram @the12ishstyle.

And for those of you tying the knot later this year, will Katie manage to find a replica dress for Meghan's extra-special May 19 dress? "If I can find one in my size", Katie explains. "That’s always the challenge with my looks!"
