Meghan Markle looked to Kate Middleton for inspiration last night, as she donned a £4,000 ($4,800) monochrome jumpsuit – which was near identical to a gown her sister-in-law wore earlier this year.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40 – who is currently living with her husband, Prince Harry, and their two kids, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, in a $14 million California mansion after stepping back from their royal duties – joined her husband, the Duke, 37, in New York yesterday to celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day at the United Nations Headquarters.

The royals spent their Monday evening dining with friends at well-known chef Andrew Carmellini’s Tribeca hotspot, Locanda Verde, just hours after Harry gave a politically charged speech at the event.

Meghan opted for a bold black and white Gabriela Hearst fitted strapless jumpsuit for the occasion, which she paired with black stilettos and a red bag. 

The look from the mother-of-two was strikingly similar to one worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, back in May – when she stepped out in a £2,700 ($32,000) Roland Mouret black gown with an identical white strap detail at the Top Gun: Maverick premiere – and it turns out, this isn’t the first time the two have worn outfits that look practically the same.

In fact, the women have donned alike clothing many times, despite their rocky relationship; it appears that Meghan is a big fan of Kate’s style, as she’s often been seen sporting looks similar to those that Kate previously wore over the years.

Back in October 2018, the former Suits star was seen wearing a burgundy printed frock by & Other Stories while out in Fraser Island. Meanwhile, Kate opted for a very similar long-sleeve polka dot dress of the same color by British retailer Whistles, when she attended a reception for Radio One’s Teen Heroes of 2018 at Kensington Palace a few days earlier.  

Meghan was twinning with Kate once again when attended an Instagram dinner in Toronto in May 2016 in a blue wrap gown, which looked just like a dress that Kate was in during her engagement photo call with Prince William in November 2010.

The Duchess of Sussex appeared to channel Kate’s style once more when she wore a Burberry coat while visiting Scotland with her husband in February 2018, as Kate was seen rocking an Alexander McQueen coatdress with a very alike pattern years earlier – at the St. Andrew’s Day festival in 2012.

This isn’t the first time the two have worn outfits that look practically the same. In fact, the women have donned alike clothing many times, despite their rocky relationship. They are seen wearing similar yellow dresses in 2018

Both ladies have also worn gray plaid outfits before – with Kate rocking an L.K. Bennett coat during an appearance in December 2017 and Meghan sporting one that looks almost exactly the same by the brand Theory in January 2018.

The actress also opted for a white coat dress while out in November 2017, while her sister-in-law wore something similar in during a visit to Portsmouth, England, in February 2015.

Kate has also appeared to copy Meghan before. In 2017, the mom-of-three attended a gala in a light blue lacy Temperley London dress, which looked a lot like a top and skirt combo that Meghan had donned at an even in 2013.

The Duchesses have actually both worn versions of the same exact dress before – with Kate donning Diane von Furstenberg’s Zarita black lace dress in 2017, and Meghan wearing a knee-length version of the same gown to an event in 2012.

The sister-in-laws also wore alike dresses just days apart to Wimbledon in July 2018, with Meghan rocking a yellow form-fitting gown on July 5, and Kate showing up in one that looked just like it 10 days later.

In 2016, they matched again when Kate was seen attending a reception at Government House in September 2016 in a red gown, which looked a lot like one that Meghan had donned to the Today show in July of the same year.

They may dress alike, but rumors of tension between the two ladies have swirled for years. And during an explosive chat with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, Meghan claimed that Kate had once made her cry before she married Prince Harry, as the couple dropped a series of shocking accusations while discussing their reason to leave the monarchy – including that there was ‘concern’ over Archie’s skin colour.

Last December, a source told People magazine that Kate was ‘really, really upset’ about the estrangement between the family. 

Then, in March, a royal expert revealed to The Mirror that Kate found it ‘mortifying’ when Meghan spoke about her to Oprah, adding that she will ‘not forget’ how she was treated, but wanted to end their feud.

According to it’s online description, Meghan’s jumpsuit from Monday night featured a ‘bold silhouette,’ as well as the brand’s ‘signature knot detailing’ across the back and a ‘slight flare’ towards the hem of the pant. 

The Duchess of Sussex, in her third outfit of the day, accessorized with dainty gold earrings, her £291,000 ($350,000) Triology engagement ring and wedding band, and Princess Diana’s £19,000 ($23,000) Cartier Tank Watch.

Harry sported a more casual look in black denim jeans, a navy blue shirt – with the arms rolled up – and grey suede sneakers. He completed the look with two separate bracelets and a necklace which was mostly hidden by his shirt.

The Duke’s relaxed appearance was a stark contrast to what he wore to his keynote speech at the UN General Assembly hours earlier, in which he blasted the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade as a ‘global assault on democracy and freedom.’

Despite the event meant to be in celebration of Nelson Mandela Day, the Prince launched an attack on American politics during his speech to delegates. He also spoke out about climate change and poverty during the two hour meeting. 

Earlier in the day, the Duchess donned a $1,590​ Givenchy patch pocket skirt when appearing alongside her husband as he featured as a keynote speaker at the UN General Assembly

Meanwhile, she also wore a pair of trendy navy shorts as she stepped out hand-in-hand with Gloria Steinem in the early afternoon

He said: ‘This has been a painful year in a painful decade. We are living through a pandemic that continues to ravage communities in every corner of the globe.

‘Climate change wreaking havoc on our planet with most vulnerable suffering most of all. The few weaponizing lies and disinformation at the expense of the many.

‘And from the horrific war in Ukraine to the rolling back of constitutional right in the US we are witnessing a global assault on democracy and freedom the cause of Mandela’s life.’

Harry also the blasted the ‘rolling back of constitutional rights’ and criticized the Supreme Court for its decision to remove federal abortion protections.

His comments followed recent remarks by Meghan to Vogue magazine in which she, alongside famous feminist icon Gloria Steinem, urged men to be ‘more vocal’ with their anger about the decision to overturn Roe.
