Kate Middleton, she of the elegant formal gowns, chic tartan coats and perfect blow-outs, may be forced to change her signature classic style, according to reports.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been getting some fashion advice from her friend, interior designer Emilia Jardine-Paterson, who is also one of Prince George's seven god parents.

Jardine-Paterson, who has also been helping the Duke and Duchess decorate their new home in Kensington Palace, is helping Middleton add some flair to her wardrobe.

“Kate admires Emilia’s style," a source told Graazia magazine. "Emilia has become increasingly important to her and Kate always uses her as a sounding board. Emilia is trying to move Kate away from the Middleton neutral palate and push her towards colour or pattern. Emilia loves vintage and tries to get Kate to be a bit more quirky.”

While it's true that Prince William's gorgeous wife isn't as fashion-forward as other royals such as Charlotte Casiraghi (fifth-in-line to the throne of Monaco) or Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, the 31-year-old has been slowly stepping up her style game by wearing animal prints and ruffled tops. (Baby steps!)

So, do you think Catherine should change up her signature style for something more exciting?
