Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, 58, stepped out wearing a new green Me + Em “Flower Silhouette Drawstring Maxi Dress” on Thursday.
The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh visited Royal Ascot Golf Club in Berkshire to cut the ribbon on the Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Wood.
Interestingly, Sophie’s new Me + Em dress had already been worn by another member of the Royal Family.
Queen Camilla, 75, chose this Me + Em gown to wear to Carnival in London last year and she looked absolutely radiant.
The dress’s description says: “A breezy, effortless addition to your rotation, this dress by ME+EM embodies the playful charm for which the label’s renowned.
“Note how the drawstring fastening and contrasting stripes to the side mimic retro sportswear styles, proving that the label’s not afraid to ignore expectations and blend sartorial codes.”
The dress is no longer in stock, so it is unclear how much it cost when it was first purchased by the Queen and the Duchess.
This is not the first occasion that Camilla and Sophie have been seen wearing the exact same dress from the same label.
During the Platinum Jubilee in 2022, the Duchess of Edinburgh travelled to Belfast to celebrate the late Queen’s historic 70-year reign.
For this visit, she wore her ME + EM “Flower Field Tiered Maxi Dress in Cream/Navy/Blue”, which Sophie previously wore in 2021.
The “clue floral printed dress with signature side stripe and a matching tie” originally cost £295, but it is currently 30 percent off at £206.
Just over a week later, Queen Camilla wore the exact same dress with Dame Joanna Lumley and Gyles Brandreth to launch the first episode of the Commonwealth Poetry Podcast.
Royal fans loved the fact that Camilla and Sophie appear to be taking style tips from each other.
