The Countess of Wessex looked JUST like Kate Middleton in this outfit

How did we miss this?

On Christmas Day, the royals headed to church in Sandringham and wow, they ALL looked incredible. From Princess Eugenie's red lace number and the Duchess of Sussex's unique Victoria Beckham bag to Duchess of Cambridge's maroon Jane Taylour headband and Princess Beatrice's navy blue funky fedora - everyone looked great as they headed to the festive service. But it was the Countess of Wessex who wore the brightest colour - a  stunning bright blue belted coat dress by Suzanne. The midi-length number totally stood out - especially as she paired it with knee-high boots, a fancy clutch bag and a disc fascinator. But if you feel like you've seen the coat before - you would be (kind of) right. 

The Wessex family looked incredible on Christmas Day - we especially loved Sophie's coat

Kate has a penchant for blue and one of her favourite coat dresses has to be her punchy Alexander McQueen belted number that she has worn countless times.

Kate has a similar coat by Alexander McQueen

She first wore the stunning, timeless number in 2014 during the D-Day 70 Commemorations in France, agnd brought it out again in 2016. The coat - although by a different designer - is so similar to Sophie's - it boasts the same colour, the same tailored cut and the same belted waist! Talk about a dead ringer, eh?

Sophie and Kate definitely enjoy many of the same shops and fashion brands. In November, Prince Edward's wife looked fabulous on a visit to Derbyshire, wowing onlookers in a dove-grey coat, which was from Prada.

Underneath it was a beautiful pink shift dress by Gucci and she finished her look with a  pair of 'Belle' knee high boots, which were priced at £350, from L.K.Bennett - one of the Prince William's wife's favourite high street stores. Both royals also love luxury jewellery brand Monica Vinader and accessories label Penelope Chilvers. Maybe they should clothes swap?
