Kate Middleton looked a vision as she entered Westminster Abbey for King Charles III’s coronation, in a white Alexander McQueen dress and royal blue cape, with a silver floral head piece.

However, it was even more adorable when we realised that she was matching with her daughter, Princess Charlotte, who was also in Alexander McQueen and a smaller version of Kate’s floral crown.

The adorable mother-daughter moment showed a real sense of unity and continuity across the royal generations, with even Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh wearing a similar silver headpiece.

According to People, the headpieces were designed by Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen, and used a mix of silver, crystal and sliver threads to pull together the intricate leaf designs.

Middleton’s gorgeous white dress was created by Alexander McQueen, who also designed the gown for her wedding back in 2011.

It also features similar silver-work to the tiara, but this time championing the rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock: plants emblematic of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland respectively.

Despite eschewing a tiara from the Crown Jewels, she was spotted wearing pearl and diamond earrings that once belonged to the late Princess Diana. 

The twinning with Charlotte continued, with the Wales’ middle-child donning a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress and cape in the same fabric as her mother’s with the same flowers embroidered into it.

She also wore a miniature version of Kate’s headpiece, in a floral headband form, also by Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen.

All we have to say is that this mother-daughter duo make the most adorable pair.
