KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, has coincidentally worn the same outfit as her a fellow royal family member who she bears such striking resemblance with it has led late Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld to dub them “royal sisters”.
The Duchess seemed to take fashion inspiration from Denmark’s Princess Mary by wearing a a navy Beulah London dress first spotted on the fellow royal last year. The £525 gown features a white collar and a summery print in green and blue tones.
The Duchess complemented the look, which she wore on Sunday to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the NHS, with some drop earrings and matching heels.
Mary, who wore the dress in Indonesia last December, teamed the gown with cream pumps and hoop earrings.
But the two royals have donned similar styles before, with royal fans pointing out the physical similarities between the two royals.

Kate wore a the same Beulah London style during a virtual engagement while she was self-isolating in the Cambridges’ Anmer Hall residence.
She wore the style in red as she issued a minute-long mental health message released in May.
The Duchess paired her gown on Sunday with matching blue heels and a pulled back hairdo, as well as some diamond and yellow gold earrings by Patrick Mavros.
The Duchess has often been spotted in Beulah London, a fashion brand co-founded by Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs and Lavinia Brennan in 2010.

In December, Denmark’s future queen took style inspiration from Kate as she wore a style of headband previously seen on the British royal.
Mary sported sequinned burgundy “hatband” from Jane Taylor London for the opening of a new emergency unit at the Viborg Regional Hospital, north west of Copenhagen.
Kate wore a similar style in velvet as she attended the christening of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie Harrison, in July last year.
Other similarities between the two royals include a shared interest for patterns, with both donning similar tartan clothing items over time.

While the Duchess of Cambridge has only been able to wear her trend-setting outfits during virtual engagements during lockdown, her outfits have drawn the attention of royal fans.
At a recent Zoom call with for 80 elementary school students across the UK, the Duchess explained the importance of kindness.
She said: “Talking to someone, whether it’s a friend, family member, or teacher, is something you can do to make yourself feel that little bit better.
“And you can also play your part in helping others to feel better too, whether offering a friendly ear, or helping someone in need.

“Small acts of kindness can go such a long way.
“But as we help others, we mustn’t forget to nurture ourselves, by taking the time to focus on the things that make us feel happy too.”
The Duchess then outlined a plan developed by the charity Place2Be, a mental health awareness and counselling group she has worked with since 2013.
Kate said that working with Place2Be and her own experiences when she became a mother are what led her to spend more time leading education and research in early childhood.
In addition to the lesson, she shared a video to promote her photography project Hold Still.
The competition, which was released last month, is looking for the images that best portray the UK’s resilience during the coronavirus pandemic.
