Kate Middleton is a source of fashion inspiration for many people, and it looks like her own mother turns to the duchess when picking out her outfits.

Carole Middleton was spotted visiting her youngest daughter and new mum Pippa Middleton at her home in London wearing a coat that’s also a part of Kate’s royal wardrobe.

The duchess wore the same coat in January 2018 while visiting Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. While Carole paired hers with some black tights, Kate wore her coat over a beige dress.
