Meghan adopts Kate Middleton's fashion hack

Meghan Markle included a subtle nod to Ireland in her outfit as she arrived at Dublin Airport with husband Prince Harry this week - a style approach she may have picked up from Kate Middleton.

It seems that Meghan's decision to dress in Ireland's national colour was no coincidence.

Kate Middleton is well known for wearing the flag colours of the countries she visits, and her new sister-in-law appears to be following suit.

The Duchess Of Cambridge famously wore a red maple-leaf adorned fascinator and white dress combination while in Canada in 2011, and donned a tartan coat on her visit to Scotland in 2013.

Meghan took a page from Kate's sartorial book to pay homage to Scotland while visiting Edinburgh in February, sporting a tartan Burberry coat and a locally designed hand bag.

In March this year, Meghan visited Northern Ireland with Harry, arriving in a carefully curated outfit that included the colours of the Irish flag; orange heels, a green skirt and a white jumper.

Her reference may have been slightly inaccurate, as Nothern Ireland's flag remains the UK's Union Jack, separate from the Republic of Ireland, but the sentiment was clear.

It's also possible Meghan might be acknowledging her distant Irish roots.

According to the Sunday Express, the Duchess' great-great-great grandmother Mary Smith immigrated to London from Ireland during the 1800s.
