Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is known for her elegant style and classic taste, just like our very own Duchess of Cambridge – but we don't think she could have looked any more like Kate on Tuesday, when she stepped out in a beautiful red midi dress that could easily be taken directly from our future Queen's wardrobe! The Danish royal also wore her hair in an identical style to one of Kate's favourites, as if she wasn't style-twinning enough already.
Duchess Kate and Crown Princess Mary obviously have similar tastes!
