Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle stepped out alongside Prince William and Prince Harry for the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey on Monday, and they both went with retro-inspired designs for the occasion.
Markle arrived in a white print dress by Victoria Beckham.
The dress featured a printed chain-link design, which Beckham described as “1970s-inspired” on Instagram. The Duchess of Sussex appeared to be wearing a bespoke version of the dress, though a similar design is available on Moda Operandi for $US1,850.
She paired the dress with a cream coat and matching pillbox hat, while a pair of dark-green heels and a matching clutch added a pop of colour.
Middleton arrived at the same event in a bold-red coatdress by Catherine Walker, which featured a double-breasted button design for a retro-aesthetic. She paired her coat with a matching bow-adorned fascinator and suede pumps.
Middleton previously wore the coat during her visit to New Zealand in April 2014, making it another example of her knack for clever outfit recycling.
All eyes have been on the royal sisters-in-law ever since reports of a royal rift between the couples started to emerge. People reported that a spokesperson for Kensington Palace has since shut down the reports of a feud, and the duo seemed to squash any remaining doubt during Monday’s service.
Not only did they greet each other with a hug as they arrived, but photographers also captured the two smiling and chatting throughout the event.
