Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are so much more than fashion icons.
Let us make that clear.
But try telling that to a majority of the free world, which has been picking apart Middleton's style for years and will undoubtedly do the same to Markle now that she's engaged to Prince Harry.

Yes, it's true:
The Suits star* and the very handsome member of Great Britain's Royal Family are planning to get married in May.
(*Well, ex-Suits star. She has confirmed that she's moving on from acting now that she'll be living the life of a quasi princess.)
Shortly after Kensington Palace announced that Harry had popped the question, the Prince and his soulmate made their first public appearance as an engaged twosome.
They held hands. They smiled for the camera. They made small talk.
And everyone started talking about the ensemble Markle was donning.
This is just the way the world operates.
Bundled up in a white wrap coat from Line the Label - a Canadian brand that’s based in Toronto - Markle rocked a green dress from the Italian brand P.A.R.O.S.H. underneath this outer garment.
“It’s... modern," fashion expert Hilary Alexander told People Magazine, adding:
"This is stylish and continental. It’s easy chic, you throw it on and wrap it round, it’s very European looking.”
Middleton, meanwhile, wore nude heels for her engagement photos alongside Prince William, along with a royal blue wrap dress from the now-defunct brand Issa London.
The dress sold out online in a matter of minutes.
Remember this beloved number?
Thus far, Markle's outfit of choice has not garnered the same sort of appreciation.
It's not being discussed nearly as much as Markle's engagement ring, for instance, likely because this ring is comprised of diamonds that once belonged to Princess Diana.
But we still think Markle looked beautiful during her photo shoot. Don't you?
Did she outdo Middleton, however, who said on Tuesday she's "thrilled" for Meghan and Harry and excited for their future as a couple?
This is what we're asking you, dear reader.
