The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex gave raspberry hues the royal nod of approval in London today.

Stepping out for two separate engagements in the capital, the sisters-in-law both wore winter-ready burgundy proving it’s never too early to give your wardrobe a festive nudge.

For a second trip to the Al Manaar Centre in London this morning, the Duchess of Sussex dressed her bump in a £178 dress by Club Monaco which featured a velvet collar.

To keep warm, the former actress also wore a £434 co-ordinating coat by the US label – giving the winter shade an even greater footing in this season’s trend line-up.

A pair of £770 Givenchy ankle boots finished the look.

Across town, the Duchess of Cambridge followed in the pregnant royal’s sartorial footsteps also wearing the a berry hue for a visit to University College London.

Proving she’s the more thrifty member of the Windsor family, the 37-year-old recycled a Paule Ka skirt suit which she first wore back in 2012.

The Duchess was most recently spotted wearing the ensemble in Wales last year for a children’s charity visit.

Braving the capital’s cold spell, Kate finished the ensemble with a black turtleneck, £335 Tod’s suede block heels (which have since sold out), £5,000 Asprey Oak Leaf earrings and her go-to Mulberry clutch.

Unsurprisingly, royal fans were quick to praise the Duchesses for their most recent fashion twinning moment.

Mirroring each other’s headline-gracing looks, they both even went so far as to don a chic pony and tights.
