The Duchess of Sussex and Duchess of Cambridge were a matching royal duo in berry colored ensembles for their unannounced appearances on a sunny but chilly day in London. Likely inspired by the holidays and cooler temperatures, both women opted for strikingly similar ensembles. Indeed, their twinning ensembles consisted of burgundy dresses, black tights, ponytails and minimal accessories. In fact, the only major differences were that Kate added a black ribbon to her hairstyle and Meghan wore booties instead of block heel pumps.
The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for the day in a recycled double breasted blazer and skirt by Paule Ka for a visit to the Psychology and Language Sciences Division of UCL. The thrifty duchess has had the ensemble for six years and has worn the look on two previous occasions.
In addition to her fall-festive skirt suit in a wine color, the duchess opted for her Tod’s black suede block heel pumps. The shoe’s feature a pebbled traction grip so there’s no risk of taking a tumble during the colder months. Shop a similar style from Kate-approved brand L.K. Bennett HERE
Kate also added a little bit of extra charm to her outfit with a holiday-friendly hair ribbon in velvet from J. Crew. The hair tie is currently still available HERE
Kate finished the look with a clutch from Mulberry called the Bayswater.
The Duchess of Sussex stepped out before Kate to visit the Hubb Community Kitchen in West London.
The emotional visit was marked with hugs, giggles and warm greetings between Meghan and the women of the North Kensington kitchen.
The Duchess of Sussex’s charity cookbook project with the women of Hubb has been a huge success with the 50-recipe tome becoming a bestseller.
While Meghan toured the facility she also was seen resting her hands on her burgeoning baby bump in a few cute snaps inside the kitchen.
For this outing, the mom-to-be went for a trendy and stylish look with pieces from Club Monaco. The autumnal ensemble was chic and very modern.
The duchess opted for a coat from Club Monaco called the Daylina. The wool blend coat is the perfect way to look warm and polished all season long. Meghan’s coat features a notch lapel, double button closure and center back seam.
For a casual but chic dress, Meghan opted for a Club Monaco style called the Sallyet ($228). The soft velvet collar adds a touch of luxe to a versatile and understated dress which works for holiday parties and looks ultra elegant paired with black booties or heels.
