Did the Queen take a style cue from Kate Middleton?

Queen Elizabeth II visited the British Museum in London on Wednesday to reopen the renovated Sir Joseph Hotung Gallery of China and South Asia — a full 25 years after the royal first unveiled the original gallery in 1992. She celebrated the monumental occasion in a magenta-pink Stewart Parvin double-breasted cashmere coat and a red flower posy brooch.

The brooch was a gift bestowed to her from the Duke of Edinburgh in the 1960s, and something she only wears on rare occasions — in addition to Wednesday’s gallery reopening, she was previously seen sporting it at the Sandringham Women’s Institute Meeting in January 2017 and the Newbury Races  in April 2014.

If the coat looks familiar, it’s very similar to the $2,700 CAD cerise hot pink Mulberry coat the Duchess of Cambridge wore during her royal trip to New York in December 2014, when she was five months pregnant with Charlotte.

The coat, which quickly sold out after Kate was first seen in it, features beautiful finishing details — elegant horn buttons and a contrasting midnight blue lining.

Kate was again spotted in the coat in March 2015 while making several engagements in South London with William, during her last official public engagement before giving birth to Princess Charlotte.

Both women look simply stunning — but who do you think wore their coat better? Let us know in the comments below!
