Duchess Kate's impeccable sense of style was showcased in the elegant bardot number.

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, who is also known for her immaculate fashion sense, previously wore a jumpsuit crafted by the same designer in 2017.

Looking strikingly similar to the Duchess' 'Lamble' off-the-shoulder dress, Queen Maxima's trendy jumpsuit featured the same elegant neckline synonymous with Roland Mouret's feminine design.

While Kate opted for pointed-toe heels, Queen Maxima amped up the glamour of her wide-leg trouser jumpsuit with strappy open toe design. The royals also opted for different hairstyles to accentuate their décolletage.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore her glossy brunette tresses in a sleek, straightened style, while Queen Maxima teased her blonde locks into a sophisticated chignon.
