Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are so in synch with their matching coats

The Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex are like one mind when it comes to their style. They often wear chic midi dresses, diamond earrings, and just yesterday, they basically wore the same coat.

During two separate outings, Kate Middleton re-wore a Paule Ka skirt suit in a deep red colour to visit the University College London, while Meghan went to the Hubb Community Kitchen to support the Together cookbook in aid of the Grenfell Tower victims. She wore a burgundy Club Monaco coat over a dress in the same hue, which are both by one of her favourite fashion brands.

They both wore the same head-to-toe shade, paired with black tights, and they even both wore their hair in a relaxed up-do.

Now you could just say that they are just adopting one of this season's biggest trends, but it's not the first time they've dressed in a similar fashion.

Sadly bother coats are now sold out, however I've found a similar one above, which you can still purchase.

Wear it like the royals with a chic tonal dress and black courts, or with an oversized knit, cropped jeans and trainers for a more relaxed approach.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
