At the 1991 rugby World Cup, Princess Diana took her son Prince Harry to watch the Wales vs. Australia game, and she also chose a charming red blazer with a white top underneath. Talk about twinning!

Perhaps Kate looked through old photographs ahead of the match and took inspiration from her mother-in-law's impeccable style? After all, sporting events are moments in history.

This isn't the first time the royals' looks have paralleled recently. In May, Kate and William took part in the official tour of Scotland together. On a visit to a leading social care charity, Kate rocked a blue Zara blazer and a stunning blue pleated skirt by Hope, with nude heels and a nude bag. Amazingly, Diana wore an almost identical outfit in 1992. Uncanny!
