Kate Middleton's Wedding Fashion Faux Pas: Duchess Of Cambridge Wears Same Outfit As Guest

Posted: Updated:

What would you do if you showed up at a wedding and Kate Middleton was wearing the same outfit as you?

That's what happened to one (un)lucky guest who shared mutual friends with the Duchess of Cambridge when they both attended the nuptials of friends Lucy Meade and Charlie Budgett in Gloucestershire on Sunday.

The woman, reported to be one Sarah Baillie, wore the exact same blue tweed Missoni coat as Princess Catherine. (Off with their stylists' heads!)

Funnily enough, the Duchess was recycling the outfit: the 32-year-old wore said coat at luxury department store Fortnum & Mason in 2012 and sported the blue dress underneath the coat at the 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony.

While this fashion faux pas would have caused quite a scandal at the Oscars, we're sure Kate, who attended the wedding with Prince William and Prince Harry, paid no attention to the fact that a non-royal was wearing the same coat as she.

Luckily, the two women styled their ensembles differently so it didn't even matter that they shared a love for the Missoni beauty: Baillie accessorized with pink strappy sandals and a white woven clutch while Prince George's mum accessorized with a deep navy hat and matching clutch.

On Saturday, Kate and Wills released an adorable family portrait of themselves and their wee future King for the UK's Mother's Day, proving that once again, they're the most photogenic family in the world. (Sorry Brad and Angelina.)
