10 Outfits That Prove Kate Middleton’s Style Icon Is Actually Her Mom
It's no secret that Kate Middleton has been switching up her style as of late. For baby Archie's christening, she channeled Blair Waldorf in a padded headband and front-tie blouse. She went sheer — and very Cinderella — for an appearance at the Royal Ascot. However, Kate isn't fully revamping her wardrobe (yet). She's still rocking her now-famous wedges, she's still accessorizing with a pair of drop earrings, and she's still dressing just like her mom, Carole Middleton.
It's true: the elder Middleton and her daughter seem to share the same taste in clothing. Kate has been known to enjoy a good midi dress and designs that never go out of style, and Carole has been spotted wearing similar pieces. While attending Wimbledon, Kate's mom stepped in a green dress that was eerily similar to one the duchess recently wore. A quick look back at Carole's outfits, and we realized this was far from the only time the two were twinning.
