The duchesses have us seeing double in Alexander McQueen and Burberry

Kate Middleton had yet another twinning moment with Meghan Markle today as she showed up in Dundee, Scotland in a navy and forest green tartan frock. Her ensemble, by Alexander McQueen, was reminiscent of the plaid Burberry coat the Duchess of Sussex wore for her visit to Edinburgh, Scotland last February.

This isn't Kate's first time wearing the McQueen dress, however. She previously wore the outfit in November 2012 for a visit to St. Andrew's School in Berkshire, England to celebrate St. Andrew's Day. At the time, she opted for knee-high suede boots instead of pumps.

For today's appearance, Kate accessorized with black gloves, a green suede Manu Atelier box bag, suede block-heel pumps, and a pair of Princess Diana's earrings.

The Duchess of Cambridge's take on the tartan print leans traditional and ladylike, while the Duchess of Sussex's was more tailored and business casual. Meghan, a fan of chic pants and suits, wore her double-breasted Burberry coat with a pair of wide leg trousers and a black turtleneck. Like Kate, she also paired the look with a structured green bag. (Hers was a crossbody by Strathberry.)

Most importantly, it seems the Duchess duo paid tribute (perhaps unknowingly) to the ultimate royal style icon, Princess Diana. Their late mother-in-law also sported the same plaid pattern in Scotland during The Bute Highland Games in 1987.

Diana's rendition of the look involved a pleated skirt, lace trim on the sleeves, and an oversized white lace collar. (It was the '80s after all.)
