Royal watchers and the fashion world are abuzz over Kate Middleton wearing the same dress that Meghan Markle wore five years ago. Did Duchess Kate steal Markle’s look? Despite some inaccurate reports that Kate stole Meghan’s look, it appears that the two women have more in common than royal brothers, Prince William and Prince Harry. Both seem to have similar fashion taste. Some publications even say that the two women have been “twinning.”

On Tuesday evening, the Duchess of Cambridge attended a charity gala at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. She wore a Diane Von Furstenberg Zarita gown. The black lace, floor-length gown in question was a dress that Duchess Catherine recycled from 2014 when she first wore it at the Royal Variety Performances. There, she met members of One Direction, including Harry Styles, and of course, Simon Cowell, who discovered them on the X Factor. This was a year and a half before Harry met Meghan. Thus, Kate Middleton did not steal Meghan’s style. Instead it looks like they were twinning.

The first time around, Kate had her hair up and wore bejeweled hoop earrings. This time around, she borrowed a gorgeous pair of drop earrings from the Queen, as well as the diamond Quatrefoil bracelet. To complete the look, Kate carried a jewel-encrusted black Prada clutch.

In February 2012, Meghan Markle wore a navy cocktail version of the knockout dress to the premiere of USA’s The Moth’s Storytelling Tour. Meghan kept her hair down and wore it with loose waves. She accessorized with nude pumps, which is another favorite fashion trend she shares with Kate, as well as a gold charm bracelet.

Both women looked elegant each time they wore this dress, and according to Vogue, the iconic fashion designer claims that this is “the ultimate party dress.” Certainly, Kate and Meghan both agree!
