Queen Camilla has us blushing with a familiar ensemble from a memorable event: She donned a pale pink Anna Valentine coat dress Wednesday for the second day of the Royal Ascot horse races—the same one she wore to a certain high-profile 2018 wedding.

Camilla wore the same tea-length coat dress with tonal fringe and lace accents that she donned for the May 2018 royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She even paired it with the same necklace, a five-strand pearl choker with a large brooch, that she wore to that celebration, though she refreshed the ensemble by swapping out her hat for the Ascot.


It’s not the first time she’s resurfaced the dress and choker combo at a high-profile royal do, either. She wore the same combo, with yet another hat, at 2019’s Garter Day celebration, part of the Trooping the Colour festivities. Princess Kate, too, had her own pink rewear moment recently.

Before Harry and Meghan made their history-making 2020 exit from the United Kingdom and their roles as senior working royals, Camilla was reportedly close with the Couple, and offered Meghan advice on weathering the public scrutiny and media obsession that contributed to their decision.

Considering some members of the royal family’s tendency to use fashion to convey meaning (Queen Elizabeth II famously sent subtle messages through her vast brooch collection), this fashion choice might be more than just an eco-friendly wardrobe pull. Might Camilla be taking some inspiration from Princess Kate’s green-leaning closet and upping her own rewear count?
