Kate Middleton and Charlotte have fans gushing over ‘mummy and me’ outfits

Royal fans have been left gushing over the outfit choices of mother and daughter Kate Middleton and Princess Charlotte.

The pair took centre stage during the Coronation of King Charles, without actually intending to.

And it was all down to their outfit choice, which has been labelled “mummy and me” by happy fans.

The younger of the pair, aged just eight-years-old, was seen wearing an Alexander McQueen dress and cape adorned with an ivory stitched silk crepe.

Her outfit paid tribute to the four nations as it featured a rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock on it.

The Princess of Wales was seen wearing a similar outfit, except hers featured silver bullion thread work with the four nations motifs on.

The dresses were actually made by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, who made Kate's 2011 wedding dress when she married Prince William.

They also both wore white shoes and similar hairstyles.

But it wasn't the dresses that captured the hearts of the nation – it was what they wore on their heads.

The pair wore matching mother and daughter Jess Collett and Alexander McQueen co-designed headpieces featuring 3D leafs made from silver bullion, crystal and silver thread work.

And social media blew up over the headgear.
