Princess Eugenie's pregnancy style has been seemingly influenced by Kate Middleton, as the Princess stepped out in a familiar-looking houndstooth coat.

Princess Eugenie looked lovely as she attended an engagement at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore on Tuesday. This was an emotional engagement for the Princess who had surgery at the hospital to correct scoliosis when she was just 12 years old. She spoke about this significance in a heartfelt speech at the hospital, "I am delighted to be here today to once again see the life-changing work taking place at the hospital. This is a charity which is very close to my heart."

"After everything I went through as a child with scoliosis, I know from my own experience how debilitating an orthopedic condition can be." She then added, "It has been inspirational to meet those here today who have benefitted from the expertise of the hospital's staff and services and hear first-hand how truly life-changing this has been for them, as it was for me when I was a child."

For this engagement, the Princess wore a black and white monochrome houndstooth coat which she paired with stockings and black leather knee-high heeled boots for a perfect monochrome look on the last day of February.

The Princess also showed off her growing baby bump as her knitted dress gently hugged her body and showed a little curving around her midriff. 

This was a gorgeous monochrome look and was a re-wear from the Princess who has owned this coat for a number of years and last wore it exactly three years before on February 28, 2019, when she attended an exhibition in Windsor.

The Princess was perhaps borrowing some style tips with her houndstooth look as just days ago, Kate Middleton re-wore her pregnancy coat which was patterned in a red and white houndstooth print, much like Eugenie's.

Like Eugenie, Catherine also wore her houndstooth coat while she was expecting. The Princess was snapped in this coat in January 2018 when she was pregnant with her youngest son, Prince Louis, who is turning five next month and is fourth in the royal line of succession

As well as being a go-to maternity style for the women in the royal family, houndstooth has been a print worn recently by the Princess of Wales at another royal engagement.

On February 28, the same day as Princess Eugenie's engagement, Catherine was also spotted wearing a black and white houndstooth - suggesting the pattern is somewhat of a trend! Kate Middleton teamed a houndstooth Zara skirt with a gorgeous cream coat and pearl earrings as she and Prince William attended an engagement in Wales. 

While at this engagement, Kate Middleton thrashed Prince William in a sporty bike challenge - even while wearing a skirt and heels!
