It's been a busy month for the British royals. As everyone knows, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced the birth of their son, Archie, while Kate Middleton has been keeping a full schedule of events. Last week, she wore a very nautical look to celebrate the King's Cup Regatta, and now she's traded stripes for polka dots. The Duchess of Cambridge was on hand to view a new D-Day exhibition in Bletchley, England, the home of the famous UK codebreakers during WWII.

Middleton wore the very same Alessandra Rich dress that Abigail Spencer, Meghan Markle's Suits co-star, wore to the royal wedding alongside Priyanka Chopra last May. (By the way, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding anniversary is on May 19. Can you believe it's been a year?) We certainly can't blame both women for choosing the stylish dress, especially considering Alessandra Rich is one of the chicest London-based designers out there. Scroll down to see how Kate Middleton and Abigail Spencer have worn the dress, and shop similar pieces for yourself.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
