As soon as we saw the ensemble, we knew we had seen it somewhere before. 

The mother-of-one wore the same style back in June at the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, which paid tribute to the Queen's 70 years on the throne.

Beatrice wore the same dress butb in blue, back in June

The daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson chose the buttoned-front long-sleeved blue dress once again, teaming the outfit with a chic matching hat with bow detail and a sophisticated blue clutch bag. This was one of the last formal occasions the royal went to when her grandmother was alive, so no doubt this style of dress has a pretty special meaning for the princess.

At this event though; Beatrice wasn't the only royal wearing the design as Sophie Winkleman, who is married to Lord Frederick Windsor, wore the same dress in pink. Wow! Sophie added Kate Middleton's favourite bag, the Aspinal Midi Mayfair in ivory to her look.

Although it undoubtedly was the same style due to the contrasting colourways, it wasn't immediately obvious the royal ladies had donned the same number. Phew!
