A frock fit for future Queens! Months before the Duchess of Cambridge had her Cinderella moment wearing shimmering Oscar de la Renta pumps and her Erdem Rhona dress to the launch of the UK-India Year of Culture 2017, Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway stepped out wearing the same pleated, elegant Dress to the Canadian Museum of History in Quebec.

Kate got festive stepping out in a frock previously worn by actress Drew Barrymore. The stylish royal attended the 2016 Heads Together Christmas party wearing the Cai Floral-Print Jacquard Dress by Vanessa Seward, which she paired with a Mulberry clutch and black suede Gianvito Rossi pumps.

The Hollywood star wore the silk dress a few months prior to the Duchess. Like Kate, Drew accessorized the knee-length design with a black handbag and matching ankle strap heels during her 2016 “branding trip” to Hong Kong.

Apart from being in relationships with British royals, the Duchess of Cambridge and actress Meghan Markle also share a similar sense of style. The two ladies both donned lacy Diane von Furstenberg dresses a few years apart. Prince Harry's American girlfriend donned a shorter navy version of the designer's "Zarita" dress to a 2012 USA Network event in Hollywood, while Prince William's wife opted for a full-length black gown version for the 2014 Royal Variety Performance in London.

Unlike Kate who wore her glossy locks down in loose waves, Nicky Hilton's sister opted for an updo to show off the crochet collar.

For the Duchess' private engagement with the Bhutanese royals in 2016, she wore a $1,495 Tory Burch floral mesh gown featuring retro-inspired flowers and side slits. Hours after Kate stunned in the gown, Drew Barrymore stepped out in New York City wearing the same embellished frock to the ASPCA Bergh Ball. Designer Tory acknowledged the coincidence was funny, telling HELLO!, "I had no idea!"

Kate and Amal Clooney not only have beauty and brains in common, but also a similar taste in style. The human rights attorney stepped out to the United Nations in 2016 wearing an Alexander McQueen dress featuring the label's "Obsession Multi Print." Kate wore the same floral and butterfly pattern in a different dress style earlier in the year during the Wimbledon Men's Finals.

Weeks after Kate wowed in an off-the-shoulder midi dress by Barbara Casasola for the Art Fund Museum of the Year Award held at the Natural History Museum, Melanie Griffith donned the same dress in a darker shade across the pond for a Hallmark Channel TCA event. While Kate wore her glossy locks down with the frock, the Hollywood actress opted for an elegant updo. The royal and her infamous "effect" also inspired reality star Kourtney Kardashian to wear the on-trend dress for her You magazine photoshoot.
