Royal fans compare Kate Middleton to Lara Croft

With her long brunette hair, simple white t-shirt and figure-hugging khaki trousers, Kate Middleton bore more than a passing resemblance to Lara Croft as she joined Prince William on a visit to an ancient Mayan site in Belize yesterday. 

The Duchess of Cambridge, 40, switched her polished looks for a practical John Lewis top, £70 khaki trousers from Dutch brand G-Star RAW and £57 Superga 2750 trainers for the visit to the structure known as the ‘sky palace’. 

The look – and adventurous itinerary – prompted royal fans to say Kate was channelling Lara Croft, a character brought to life on screen by Angelina Jolie in the films Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Lara Croft Tomb Rider: The Temple Of Life.  

‘The Duchess is giving Lara Croft vibes in that outfit,’ one fan said. ‘This is some Lara Croft and Indiana Jones energy. Love it,’ commented another.

Kate and William, 39, kickstarted their busy itinerary yesterday – the third day of their Caribbean tour – with a visit to the Mayan archaeological site Caracol. 

They learned about the history of the site, located in the Chiquibul Forest, and took in the country’s tallest man-made structure – known as the ‘sky palace’. 

And when the couple shared a picture of their trip to Instagram, many fans compared the Duchess to fictional character and the main protagonist of the video game franchise Tomb Raider, who was famously played by Angelina Jolie in the 2001 film.

Kate donned a simple white T-shirt and a pair of G-star Raw khaki high-waisted cargo pants, which retail for £70 on the high-street, whilst William opted for a shirt, trousers and sturdy boots.

The duchess also partnered her look with a black belt, white Superga trainers, a simple pair of gold-plated hoops by Spells of Love and she also accessorised the ensemble with a pair of Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Classic sunglasses, which she matched with her husband.

The couple were visiting a 3,000-year-old temple, built by the Maya civilisation, stood at the centre of a city – home to an estimated 150,000 people and is believed to have been occupied as early as 1200 BC.

Kate could be seen gesturing at the site while at ground level and when they climbed half way up Caana and looked out from a platform, the couple stood with their hands on their hips looking around.

As they caught a glimpse of the vista, the couple marvelled at what they saw. ‘Wow,’ said Kate.

William got the giggles when, as he turned back away from the view – which was being captured by a group of photographers – to find another group the other side of them.

‘We got one, one side and another the other. You are in each other’s photographs,’ he laughed.

The couple then continued on their ascent accompanied by their own personal photographer.

Mr Moore told them as they climbed the steep steps up: ‘People often like to try and run up here.’

William replied: ‘What they race? You must be very fit if you are doing this three times a week Allan.’

Later in the day the couple took part in a jungle survival skills lesson with the British Army Training Support Unit
