Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s Engagement Dresses Were Totally Different but Equally Stunning

We can’t wait to watch Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton‘s friendship blossom. They have so much in common, like marrying into the royal family and being a regular person before that. However, our favorite thing about the duo is their killer sense of style, which they both put on display during their engagement photo shoots! We couldn’t help but compare their engagement dresses after Meghan shared the happy news that Prince Harry proposed on Monday, Nov. 27!

Meghan stepped out on the day of her announcement wearing a stunning white coat over a dark green dress, cinched at the waist with a tie. The coat was a nod to her temporary home in Toronto, where she lived while shooting Suits, because it was made by Toronto-based brand Line the Label. She topped off the look with some nude pumps, and, of course, her beautiful new engagement ring with two diamonds from Princess Diana’s personal collection! The shoot took place outside of Kensington Palace, where Harry grew up and where they’ll live together once married, but since it was chilly, we never got a good look at the dress underneath.

Kate and Prince William, on the other hand, chose to do their announcement photos indoors in November 2011, inside St. James’s Palace. Since they opted for an indoor shoot, Kate didn’t need a coat, so she let her dress shine. She wore a sapphire blue wrap dress that matched her dazzling ring perfectly.

Though Kate and Meghan’s engagement announcement dresses were quite different, we couldn’t help but notice the similarities Meghan’s coat had to Kate’s engagement portrait look. In the now-famous photos snapped by Mario Testino, Kate is seen wearing a creamy white dress that has a wrapped appearance and a knee-length, just like Meghan’s coat! We can’t wait to see what Meghan wears for her royal portrait!
