Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have both proven to be great influences when it comes to fashion. However, one designer finds the latter's style to be "younger and edgier."

Middleton, 35, is the fashion symbol of the royal family. The Duchess of Cambridge often makes headlines for her stunning outfits. Meanwhile, the "Suits" star has also recently gained attention for her fashion choices, but designer Ben de Lesi said that there is a big difference between their styles.

"I think Meghan's style is slightly younger than the Duchess of Cambridge, and slightly edgier, but that's because Meghan is not walking in the role of a princess and Kate is," de Lesi told Hello Magazine (via Express) of the two women's fashion. "Kate has embraced it beautifully, with style and class. Sometimes it borders on being very safe but I always think she pulls it off beautifully."

On the other hand, de Lesi said Markle's ensembles are good examples of "classic chic." "From photographs, I see [Markle's] style as classic chic," he said of Prince Harry's girlfriend. "It's quite clean, and I don't see it as gratuitous fashion trends - I like the concept of her wearing a white shirt and jeans and flats with a beautiful statement bag. I think she's all about the understatement."

When Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, made their first public appearance as a couple at the Invictus Games in Toronto, the "Horrible Bosses" star sported a white button-down shirt, blue ripped jeans and flats with a tote bag. Shortly after photos of Markle from the event surfaced, her ensemble was sold out. She set a fashion trend known as the "Meghan Effect," which is reportedly as potent as the "Kate Effect."

Markle’s fashion used to include shorts, mini-dresses and above-the-knee skirts. However, she has not worn any of these outfits lately.

According to New York Post, Queen Elizabeth II enforces a "no knees" policy for royal outfits. This could be the reason why Markle has recently been wearing more conservative looks and tailored trousers.

In related news, Prince Harry is reportedly Markle's main mentor in her royal education. He apparently taught his girlfriend how to dress and address his grandmother before he introduced the two.

In addition to her boyfriend, the Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly another mentor for the "Remember Me" star. Middleton had the same struggles as Markle during the early days of her relationship with Prince William, so she is a perfect role model for Markle.
