Kate Middleton may add colour to style

London: The Duchess of Cambridge has so far followed a simple and understated style. She may now consider switching to colourful and patterned designs too as advised by her old friend and interior designer Emilia Jardine-Paterson.

According to the Grazia magazine, Duchess of Cambridge, maiden name Kate Middleton, may switch her signature style as Emilia, one of Prince George`s godparents, has been giving her fashion advice, reports eonline.com.

Emilia has been trying to influence new mother Kate`s style.

"(Emilia) is trying to move Kate away from the Middleton neutral palate and push her towards colour or pattern," said a source, and added: "Emilia loves vintage and tries to get Kate to be a bit more quirky".

However, so far, Kate doesn`t seem to have taken her tips seriously.
