About This Quiz

The title of Duchess is only given to women who marry into the royal family. It cannot be inherited, either. That means if you're a duchess, you have an exclusive title as well as a special place within the royal family. It can be hard feeling like an outsider, especially if you didn't carry a royal title to begin with, like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. There are so many rules to learn. Because we live in an era where media rules everything, and there are almost no secrets, the rules of the royals have pretty much become common knowledge.

But even with all of the guidelines, there is still the fun part of being a duchess. People look to them for fashion inspiration probably the most. When Kate married Prince William, it was only a matter of time before other designers were copying her wedding dress. Whenever she wears something, it sells out almost immediately. The same now goes for Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Their style is exactly what you would expect from royal women but with an updated feel and a personal touch. They have their favorite designers, and you have yours. Want us to guess what it is? Pretend you're a duchess and we will!
