Great minds think alike…or gravitate toward the same designers. Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle unveiled photos from new events on Wednesday. Kate’s was actually today: The Duchess of Cambridge is on a 24-hour tour of the country and just arrived in Cardiff for her visit at the Ely and Careau Children’s Centre. Meghan’s event, meanwhile, was a few weeks ago, when she made a secret visit to Mayhew while in London ahead of her announcement that she and Harry were stepping back from their senior royal family roles.
Both women wore great winter coats from the same brand, Massimo Dutti. Kate’s is camel and double-breasted. She paired it with a Zara skirt, a black turtleneck, and Ralph Lauren boots. Meghan, meanwhile, opted for a navy wrap coat with a blue blouse. The Duchess of Sussex shared photos her team took of the visit on her SussexRoyal Instagram.
Kate has been out for the past two days doing engagements to coincide with the launch of her 5 Big Questions nationwide survey, which will help inform where the Duchess will focus her advocacy work for early childhood. She visited Birmingham yesterday and will also visit London and Surrey.
“Parents, carers and families are at the heart of caring for children in the formative years, so that is why I want to listen to them,” Kate said in a statement that the Palace tweeted last night. “As a parent I know how much we cherish the future health and happiness of our children. I want to hear the key issues affecting our families and communities so I can focus my work on where it is needed most. My ambition is to provide a lasting change for generations to come.”
