The Spanish royal never fails to amaze with her effortless looks and rocked business-casual to perfection as she attended a discussion hosted by the FundeuRAE (Urgent Spanish Foundation), which was founded in February 2005 to help promote the proper use of Spanish in the media.

Back in 2010, Duchess Kate made headlines in a strikingly similar dress by Issa London as she and Prince William announced their engagement to the world. Sending fans wild, the 'Kate effect' wiped her sophisticated style off of the shelves almost immediately, as demand for the dress soared.

It's not the first time that Letizia and Kate have both worn similar ensembles, as they favour a number of the same brands, including Zara, Massimo Dutti, Mango and Carolina Herrera.

From floral frocks to white flowing skirts, powder pink suits to lace gowns, over the years the pair have drawn comparisons thanks to their love of timeless and tailored styles.
