  • It was all about the sartorial details at this weekend’s Trooping the Colour. Prince Louis borrowed an outfit from Prince Harry and Prince William, and Meghan Markle sported an eternity ring that was most likely a birth present from her husband.

    Now royal experts have said that the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex both decided to hark back to their respective wedding days with their outfits.

    Kate wore a sunny yellow dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, who also designed her famous lace wedding dress.

    Meanwhile, Meghan opted for a navy and cream set that came with a cape, by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, the woman behind her classically beautiful wedding dress.

    It might or might not be a coincidence of course, but either way it’s a nice little nod to their big days.
