King Felipe and Queen Letizia's two daughters Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia share a sweet sibling bond.

Ever since their father ascended to the throne in 2014, the duo, who are just two years apart in age, have flourished in the spotlight. And like many young royals - take your minds back to Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice and Princes William and Harry - they've done so in an array of matching outfits.

In his memoir, Spare, the Duke of Sussex explained how his mother's habit was "pure agony" for Prince William.

"Willy always hated it when anyone made the mistake of thinking of us as a package deal. He loathed it when mummy dressed us in the same outfits," he said. "I barely took notice. I didn't care about clothes, mine or anyone else's… But for Willy it was pure agony to wear the same blazer, the same tight shorts, as me."
