Pregnant Kate Middleton proved princesses think alike when she stepped out on Wednesday in a coat previously worn by Princess Mary of Denmark when she was pregnant six years ago.
The Duchess of Cambidge arrived in London to celebrate the Underground”s 150th anniversary in a teal creation by Danish fashion designer Malene Birger. Kate”s choice of outfit prompted fans to note they had seen the coat dressing a royal bump before.
Flying the flag for her adoptive country”s fashion industry, Australian-born Princess Mary wore the coat on 20 November 2006 for an official visit to The Red Barnet Foundation, Denmark”s version of Save The Children, when she was pregnant with Princess Isabella.
Designer Malene has described the coat as “A beautiful wool coat with beautiful bead work, back martingale closed by invisible hooks, cotton lining with beautiful polka dot black border, pen pocket inside, two outside pockets closed with large buttons.”
As part of her work the The Mary Foundation, Mary wore the elegant coat for the presentation of the Children”s Rights Prize for the Save the Children Fund in Copenhagen. She awarded the prize to psychologist Kirsten Ørgaard who has worked with children in Greenland for years.
Mary was 33 during the visit only two years older than her fellow brunette beauty Kate.
