Kate Middleton showed off a fresh new style whilst visiting Cyprus to meet RAF personnel serving there.

Instead of opting for her usual slim-leg jeans or pleated dress, the mother-of-three took a leaf out of sister-in-law Meghan Markle and designer Victoria Beckham's style books.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 36-years-old, wore a green blazer, believed to be from Smythe, and matching light green clutch alongside some navy wide-leg trousers and a white top.

Victoria Beckham is in part responsible for the renaissance of the wide-legged trouser. Not quite a palazzo pant, but uniformally wider than a flair or bell bottom, Victoria Beckham's AW18 collection featured a number of roomier trouser looks and the designer herself has been favouring a floor-length voluminous trouser for the last year or so.

While the Duchess of Cambridge has been known to don a skinny jean, when making appearances at more casual events, she's more often seen in a dress or midi skirt.

Meghan Markle, Kate's sister-in-law, on the other hand, is much more regularly spotted in a smart trouser. She paired a wide-leg black trouser with a blue blazer to throw a netball at Loughborough University in September of this year, for example.

The Duchess of Cambridge looks uber chic in her wide trousers and green blazer get-up and her look makes a powerful statement about the fashion rules, perhaps, relaxing among the royal set.
