Kate Middleton & Princess Charlotte's Matching Outfits Are Perfection
Much like any style-loving mother and daughter, Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte wear matching outfits more often than not. And, while Charlotte might not always be present for all her mother’s formal events, when she does step out, they tend to do so in coordinated monochrome color, as royal fashion expert Elizabeth Holmes recently pointed out on Instagram stories.
For those highly-photographed public events during which they are arm-in-arm, however, it’s a sure bet that the fashion-forward duo will step out in outfits that will (almost) make you wish you had done the same with your mom…or, rather, outfits you will definitely recreate with your child.
The beauty of Middleton and her adorable daughter’s twinning moments, however, is that they’re more coordinated than identical. And that's basically the chic-er version of matching. Nearly always spotted in a similar color palette, the Mommy-and-Me moments are subtle, though stylish all the same.
Both the Duchess and the Princess have their own very unique uniforms: the elder often in A-line or pencil silhouettes, the younger choosing her go-to smocked dresses. That said, the two looks complement one another in a manner that gives Mommy-and-Me style a whole new meaning.
