Pity the woman who is compared to Kate

Please, no one ask “who wore it best.” Because that’s just not fair. In what just might be the ultimate awkward party faux pas, someone wore the same elegant Missoni coat as Kate Middleton to a society wedding. The princess, who is well known for her annoyingly pitch-perfect sartorial choices, was at the wedding of Lucy Meade and Charlie Budgett with husband William and brother-in-law Harry. No word on the identity of the unnamed guest who unknowingly copied the Duchess of Cambridge’s style. At least she looks pretty flawless as well.

In other royal news, William and Kate released a new photo of their family over the weekend. Cue the squeals.
