Meghan Markle sparks debate with latest fashion choice

The Duchess' pussybow blouse has fans talking

The Duchess of Sussex made a new public appearance on our screens on Sunday, surprising viewers on CNN's Heroes special to pay tribute to those who came together to support those most impacted during the coronavirus pandemic.

In the inspiring clip, Meghan wore a chic tie-neck blouse in a soft neutral tone, which she paired with a beautiful berry makeup look and her hair swept back with loose strands framing her face.

As usual, royal fans were quick to try and locate her fashion picks - though there was also some significant online debate as to whether Meghan's latest look is reminiscent of her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate is known to be fond of pussybow blouses, and recently recycled her lilac Gucci shirt for one of her own virtual appearances - but both royal ladies have been rocking the elegant neckline for many years individually.

The likes of the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Beatrice and even the Queen have also worn pussybow looks over the years, not to mention plenty of other European royal ladies.

Of course, Meghan and Kate's fashion tastes have overlapped on a number of occasions - for example, the Duchess of Cambridge recently debuted a new clutch bag from Strathberry, an accessories designer that Meghan owns a number of handbags from.

Meghan also wore her pretty swallow earrings from Catherine Zoraida for her latest appearance - a British brand that Kate has worn for many years.

We'll never really know whether the pair have ever swapped wardrobe tips, but we love to see their individual styles - and the signature trends that they both love to wear, which of course cross over on occasion.

Meghan spoke of kindness and generosity during her speech, saying: "Tonight, we are celebrating these quiet heroes, some of whom I know and others that we applaud from afar. These individuals stood up and made sure the most basic needs of our communities were met. They made sure those around them did not have to suffer in isolation. They nourished their neighbours in more ways than one.

"And they showed us, all of us, that even in the darkest times, when we come together, we have the power to remind someone else that there is hope, and that we will be okay."
