Melania Trump and Kate Middleton are two different women each with important roles in their respective countries. However, apart from their celeb status and strong personalities, fashion is also something else they have in common.

Same style goals

The Duchess of Cambridge has always been a woman of style and this has become even more evident as the years go by. Parade pointed out that Kate's fashion sense has evolved impressively over time.

This change is understandable considering the fact that she will be a queen consort someday. Her overall look can be described as classy, elegant, and timeless.

These same words can be used to describe Melania's style as well. Like Kate, a lot has changed since she became First Lady. She has evolved from risque fashion choices to a lot more toned-down but still trendy looks, Harper's Bazaar noted.

These similarities between Melania and Kate show that they may find the same types of outfits appealing. So it's not such a surprise that they were spotted wearing almost identical looks.

She combined this look with a black blazer draped over her shoulder and a matching skirt.

Melania was truly the epitome of grace and elegance in this look. But then, it was also reminiscent of a style the Duchess of Cambridge once opted for.

In April 2016, Kate Middleton chose a similar look while on a tour of India with her husband, Prince William.
