If there's one thing we know, it's that royals love to use each other for fashion inspiration.

Remember when Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton wore the exact same pair of blue pumps to the 2018 Commonwealth Day service? Or how about when Kate Middleton debuted her youngest son, Prince Louis, while wearing a red and white look inspired by an ensemble worn by Princess Diana?

It's clear that royal family members look to each other when figuring out what to wear, but that inspiration isn't reserved only for the British royals.

Recently, a report from Express pointed out that Queen Letizia of Spain seemed to be taking a style tip from Kate Middleton. When the queen was spotted leaving dinner with her family last night, Express noticed that she was wearing a pair of black Castañer Carina 80 wedges to go with her maxi dress, and these shoes are the same ones that Middleton has sported in the past.

Middleton has been spotted in these shoes on multiple occasions, as has fellow royal, Meghan Markle. And even when she's not wearing them, the Duchess of Cambridge has donned many dupes, like these espadrille heels from Russell & Bromley she wore last summer.

While we're often looking to Middleton for style inspo, Queen Letizia has often been a trendsetter herself. The queen has shown up to events in optical illusion Hugo Boss dresses, olive green jumpsuits and $30 Zara pieces, and we're always amazed.

So, it makes sense that two of the world's most stylish women would look to each other when it comes to picking out their outfits. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more twinning moments.
