Royal fans slam Kate Middleton as CopyKate amid Meghan Markle comparisons

Royal fans have slammed Kate Middleton and dubbed her "CopyKate" amid comparisons to Meghan Markle.

However, others have defended the Duchess of Cambridge and begged for the comparisons to stop.

The row among fans comes after Kate and Prince William attended an evening reception hosted by the Governor-General of Belize on Monday as part of their ongoing royal tour.

Kate styled her brown hair in a slicked-back style for the posh party, donning a sparkling pink dress from British fashion brand The Vampire's Wife to go with it.

Royal fans are used to seeing Kate's tresses styled loose and downward over her soldiers.

This is actually unusual for women in the Royal Family as others including Princess Anne have worn their hair up, while the Queen and Princess Diana had their hair styled short.

Kate's Monday style, with a centre parting and pulled tightly behind the ears, is favoured by Meghan who debuted an identical do at the Mountbatten Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall in 2020 with Prince Harry.

Royal fans were quick to make the comparisons, with Kate coming under fire.

One wrote online: “That hair is giving me Meghan vibes. Doesn't Kate usually have curls up to her jaw line? Looks copycat to me.”

Another added: “The middle parting of the hair…never has she ever before”, before another chimed in to add: “#KopyKat strikes again. This is a momentous occasion – the first time #KateMiddleton has EVER had sleek hair.”

A fan page for the Sussexes called ‘ArchiesServants’ shared a comparison snap of the two royal women, and captioned it with: “After wearing Diana's earrings for 10 years, she's updating to Meghan's style. What time are those How to Meghan classes?”

In response someone wrote wrote: “I’m shooketh. #CopyKate."

Another added: “Kopy Kate strikes again.”

However, some fans rushed to defend Kate. One said: “Can we stop this comparisons please? One doesn’t have the right to specific things. I wish we would stop.”

Another added: “How does this look the same? #RoyalVisitBelize.”

“Well blow me down! I didn’t realise that no one other than Meghan has ever had sleek hair before,” a third wrote.
