Meghan Markle and Princess Beatrice share more than just a membership in the Royal Family - it seems they share some closet staples in common, too. The former actress stepped out on Sept. 20 to celebrate her cookbook launch wearing a black pleated skirt by her pal Misha Nonoo, and it seems her new cousin slipped on the same pretty piece the following day for a special engagement.
The Duchess of Sussex was all smiles as she toasted her first solo charity project with a beautiful tented luncheon on the grounds of Kensington Palace, her husband Prince Harry and mom Doria Ragland in tow. Looking chic as ever, the royal paired her midi skirt with a beautiful royal-blue coat by Canadian label SMYTHE, a sleeveless TUXE turtleneck bodysuit and black Sarah Flint pumps, wearing her hair in soft waves and her makeup typically natural. The duchess often wears items from her longtime pal Misha, who has been reported as the woman responsible for setting up Prince Harry and Meghan!
The @when_harry_met_meghan Instagram fan account thanked @iamjozaphen for pointing out the twinning moment, though the two royals styled the polyester piece differently. While Beatrice paired the look with a mock-neck black top, her topper was a shorter beige coat and she wore a pair of pearl-embellished loafers with ankle straps. The 30-year-old wore her red hair straight with little makeup.
Sarah Ferguson's eldest daughter wore the pleated number while on a visit to Pupil Referral Units as part of her work with The Big Change Charitable Trust, which she founded with six of her close friends - one of whom, Holly Branson, was by her side last Friday. Interest in Beatrice's style will soon be greater than ever as maid of honour when her sister, Princess Eugenie, says "I do" to Jack Brooksbank on Oct. 12 at St. George's Chapel, the same place where Prince Harry and Meghan tied the knot.
The Saturday skirt is made on demand, which means the ladylike piece takes about 10 business days to ship, though it's likely to sell out fast thanks to its royal following! Made from 100% polyester, it's dry clean only and retails for USD$250. "Recently worn by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, the Saturday Skirt is great for any day of the week," the description on mishanonoo.com reads. "The ladylike length and pleats keep your look demure and professional when paired with a crisp white shirt or black turtleneck. Style it with a t-shirt and trainers, for Saturday (or Sunday) brunch."
