Queen Elizabeth II recently spent quality time with Prince William and Kate Middleton – but it seems her thoughts may have been on her other grandson and granddaughter-in-law.

Her Majesty visited the “RHS Back to Nature” garden on Monday, which was designed by Kate Middleton for the Chelsea Flower Show in London.

The Queen, meanwhile, had already worn the exact same outfit to a much more significant royal event.

Her Majesty wore the same green coat and floral dress to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding at St George’s Chapel on May 19, 2018.

On Monday, she rewore the entire outfit, right down to her pearl necklace.

The only thing missing was the hat, which may have been considered too formal for the event.

Of course, there’s a chance it was just a coincidence. However, given that the pair’s first wedding anniversary fell the day before, on Sunday, May 19, it seems likely it was a subtle nod to the couple.

The duke and duchess, who welcomed their first child earlier this month, took to Instagram to celebrate the one-year milestone. The royal duo shared a series of never-before-seen pictures in a video slideshow to their 8.3 million followers on the social media site.

“We hope you enjoy reliving this moment, and seeing some behind the scenes photos from this special day,” they wrote in the post.
