If two celebrities showed up to an awards show in the same dress, it would be a complete disaster. Luckily, Queen Letizia of Spain recently encountered this situation, and she handled it with total grace.

This week, the 49-year-old royal attended a meeting for the Royal Board on Disability Council, where she presented the Reina Letizia 2021 Awards. Queen Letizia wore a simple dress by Mango, featuring a two-tone black-and-white pattern.

The monarch couldn’t help but laugh when she met one of the award recipients, Inmaculada Vivas Tesón, who was wearing the same exact dress as her. Not only did they don identical frocks, but they also completed their looks with similar accessories, including black pumps. (Side note: The belt came with the dress.)

The Bicolour Belt Dress retails for a price of £60 (around $74).

According to Town & Country, Tesón was awarded for “her professional career in the work of people with disabilities, as well as for her academic and research career in the legal field, developing compliance with the precepts set forth in the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.”

The purpose of the Queen Letizia Awards is to “promote the rights of people with disabilities, social inclusion, equal opportunities, rehabilitation and prevention of disabilities.”

It seems great minds think alike.
