• Kate Middleton's pantsuit reminded royal fans of Meghan Markle's outfit in 2018
  • Netizens praised Middleton's appearance because she looked stunning
  • Russian photographer Sergey Gorshkov was named the Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Kate Middleton seemingly channeled Meghan Markle in a glam appearance by wearing a pantsuit from Alexander McQueen when she announced that she would be joining the virtual awards ceremony for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

The Duchess of Cambridge is popular for wearing dresses, but she switched up her royal wardrobe and opted for a tailored pantsuit on Monday. She paired it with a simple black top with a blazer. Middleton styled her hair in her signature bouncy blowout and accessorized with drop pearl earrings.

Middleton's pantsuit reminded many of Markle’s appearance back in 2018, People reported. Prince Harry's wife also sported a sleek pantsuit from Altuzarra for the WellChild Awards. Markle even donned a similar top as Middleton's at the time.

Kensington Palace shared the clip of Middleton's announcement on Twitter and it received the approval of the netizens who saw it.

"The Duchess looks absolutely stunning. I love her voice too. She's perfect," one commented.

"Wow she is glowing and gorgeous! I have to say she and Prince William seem the happiest they’ve ever been. Great work they are doing, raising a beautiful family and serving their country," another added.

"What a gorgeous, classy future Queen & her accent. Excited for this, you can see The DoC is clearly passionate about the causes she works on, she's also an amazing photographer, can't wait to see who's the lucky and talented winner," @KayIntersellar wrote.

Middleton presented the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award to Sergey Gorshkov on Tuesday. The Natural History Museum also shared the winning picture, dubbed as "The Embraced," which featured a lone Siberian tigress hugging a tree.

Many royal women around the world have already embraced the pantsuit trend including Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and Queen Letizia of Spain. Even Princess Diana rocked pantsuits when she was still alive. However, Queen Elizabeth II almost never wears slacks when attending royal engagements. Her Majesty is reportedly not a fan of the style.
