Kate Middleton borrowed this style trick from Meghan Markle

It was recently revealed that Meghan Markle gave Kate Middleton a sweet gift, a peace offering if you will after the drama that surrounded the former's wedding and her flower girl outfits.

Opening up about the ‘elegant peace offering’ in his book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, royal biographer Andrew Morton explained: ‘Meghan had since given Kate and her six closest friends gold bracelets designed by Californian jeweller Lisette Polny as a thank you for their help and support.’

And it looks like it's not the only thing the Duchess of Sussex has given her sister-in-law, as it seems like she has shared one of her ultimate style hacks: bodysuits.

Meghan, who often wears suits during her official engagements, tends to favour them as they don't ride up or cause unwanted creases, meaning she always looks polished.

Royal fans also spotted Kate donning the basic staple during certain Zoom appearances during the pandemic, which makes sense as you wouldn't want a top riding up awkwardly when you're sitting down. She wore a white shirt bodysuit for a video appearance, and a white t-shirt bodysuit to get her first COVID-19 vaccine.

Be right back, gone to stock up.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
