Kate Middleton may be adding a twist to her usual style to distinguish herself from sister-in-law Meghan Markle.

According to Jess Sheldon, a journalist for Express, the Duchess of Cambridge is making some changes in her fashion so she won't be compared to the Duchess of Sussex. And the new item that Middleton has often worn lately? A headband.

Prince William's wife has been seen sporting a headband multiple times this year. In fact, when Middleton attended the Remembrance Day service at Westminster Abbey on Sunday, she wore a chic black velvet headband by Jane Taylor that retails at $1,144. Earlier this year, the mom of three was also photographed wearing another stunning headpiece during Sophie Carter's wedding in Norfolk.

Fashion experts have described Middleton's fashion choice of accessory as "regal." It just fits Middleton's style. "This is definitely a more regal style that Kate is wearing. The style of the headbands are very similar to a tiara but can be worn on most royal engagements," stylist Rochelle White told Femail. "I think Kate could be trying to distinguish herself from Meghan. They have been compared a lot recently in regards to their fashion choices, styles and colour palettes."

"Kate has fine-tuned her style and status over the years and I think this is her becoming more confident in her royal role," she added.

A number of royal fans love Middleton's headbands. They believe that the Duchess of Cambridge's effort in distinguishing herself from Markle is "creative."

"I think they look lovely on her," one fan commented on Middleton's photo wearing a headband.

"I love this trend so much. Hope to see more of these," another user wrote.

Aside from the accessory, Middleton made another change in her wardrobe. Royal experts believe that Middleton's "wardrobe change may be a first sign towards an edgier Kate," who is coming back with a bang after her six-month maternity leave.

"After that long break, she has certainly come back with a bang," Kaitlin Menza, co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast told Vanity Fair. "She seems like she's in a more take-charge position. I'm beginning to see the person who's going to be the queen emerging."
