Meghan Markle reportedly held off picking an outfit for Pippa Middleton’s wedding because she was worried about clashing with the Duchess of Cambridge.
The American actress will be the focus of much attention when she accompanies Prince Harry to the wedding of Kate Middleton’s sister to James Matthews on Saturday.
To prepare for the big day, she has been wary about what to wear and has been reportedly bouncing ideas off of her friend and stylist, Jessica Mulroney.
"Jessica is a fantastic stylist and is smart enough to know that, as well as making sure Meghan looks her best, they also need to be mindful about what Kate is wearing," an insider told E! NEws.

"The last thing anyone would want would be for them to be in a similar colour or design. Meghan would never want to attract the wrong kind of attention."
Erdem, Berardi and Burberry are among the designers tipped to be chosen by Miss Markle, while speculation has also been rife about the identity of the designer of the bride’s dress.
The society wedding of the year will be the most high profile event to date at which the Prince and Miss Markle will step out in public as a couple.

The nuptials will take place in the idyllic village of Englefield in Berkshire and the finer points of the event have been a closely-guarded secret.
Reports suggest it will be a lavish affair with a nod to the groom’s Scottish connections included in his outfit, entertainment and the food.
