Duchess of Cambridge has the help of a secret shopper and it's a member of the royal family

How sweet!

Duchess of Cambridge

We love the Duchess of Cambridge’s style, and it turns out that another member of the royal family has been giving her style tips.

The royal family have a very enviable wardrobe and we were pleasantly surprised to learn that the Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex share a similar taste in fashion, to the point where the Countess acts as a secret shopper for her. We're definitely not jealous!

Speaking to the Daily Mail, fashion designer Donna Ida revealed that the Countess shops for her pieces, but makes sure she picks up something extra for the Duchess too.

Donna said, “Sophie got our black Sadie jumpsuit for herself and then asked for one for Kate. She said ‘Kate wants one, can I get one as well?’”.

So it’s likely that both Duchess Kate and Countess Sophie have the same pieces in their wardrobe, although they’ve never been spotted wearing the same thing at an event - so we’re guessing they might check beforehand!

Recently, the Countess wore a cosy pink jumper that’s perfect for the autumn weather. We’re not sure where she got hers from, but we did find a really good dupe online…

We’re definitely going to be keeping an eye out for more styles from both the Duchess and Countess over the autumn and winter season, you never know, one may have influenced the other when buying it!
