Kate Middleton's style has become more serious and business-like since becoming Princess of Wales.

She launched her childhood development campaign and did royal engagements.

She now wears more trouser suits and formal ensembles than polka-dot tea gowns.

Her wardrobe colors are carefully chosen and diplomatic, paying tribute to national flags, flowers or scenery.

Kate has made some surprising style statements, such as wearing black opera gloves to the 2022 BAFTAs.

At King Charles' May coronation, she is expected to dress conservatively.

Kate's outfits are scrutinized by the press for their meanings and symbolism.

She aims to focus the public's attention on the charity in hand rather than the brand she is wearing.

Her style has evolved to reflect the gravitas of her new position in the Royal family as she gets nearer to the throne.
