Kate Middleton is giving major fashion props to Sarah Parker-Bowles.

Before we cut to the sartorial tidbits, we'll break down the royal relations here—Sarah is the daughter-in-law of the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowles. Camilla is married to Prince Charles, whose daughter-in-law is the lovely Kate. So in a round-about way, Sarah and Kate are stepsisters-in-law.

As for the Duchess of Cambridge's style remarks to Sarah? "We've talked about designers we admire in the past and she's always very complimentary about what I wear," Sarah said via Daily Mail. Even so, Sarah admitted that Kate's "got more important things to think about" than her style, but "that's what makes her so endearing."

We're not surprised that the two see eye-to-eye on fashion—after all, Sarah is an associate editor at the iconic Harper's Bazaar U.K. Plus, both ladies picked wedding dresses by Alexander McQueen.

While being knighted is up there, we're pretty sure a Kate Middleton style seal of approval is one of the most prestigious royal compliments.
