We are always looking to Princess Beatrice and Kate Middleton for fashion inspiration, so it wouldn't surprise us to learn that the two exchange closet staples every once in a while. And based on Princess Beatrice's latest appearance, it seems that she may have borrowed a dress from the Duchess of Cambridge.

As Hello! magazine pointed out, Sarah Ferguson's eldest daughter attended the 2022 Annual Summit dinner for 20:40 (a leaders organization) at Mansion House on Friday, where she sported a white midi dress from Self-Portrait (which you can get here). The pearly design includes a white, belted blazer at the top with a pleated skirt that has a sheer, lace trim. A shot of Princess Beatrice in the outfit can be seen at this link.

If this outfit looks familiar, that's because we've seen Middleton rock this dress on a number of important occasions. Last fall, the Duchess of Cambridge celebrated the release of her Hold Still photography book by hosting an event for all those involved in the project, including the National Portrait Gallery, the Book Fairies U.K. and Co-op. As seen in the post below, we got a glimpse of Middleton's all-white outfit.

More recently, Middleton sported the exact same look during Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, where the duchess was spotted at the Platinum Party with Prince William and their two eldest children.

This wouldn't be the first time that Princess Beatrice has seemingly taken a style cue from Middleton. Last year, eagle-eyed royal fans noticed that the princess sported a totally new hairdo right before announcing her pregnancy (in an effort to distract from her growing baby bump, perhaps)—a trick that the Duchess of Cambridge used with all three of her pregnancies.

All we know is that we hope to see more of these royal outfit exchanges.
