Is that the Duchess of Cambridge?

When Kate attended the opening of the Treasures at the Natural History Museum in London on Tuesday, the young royal was exhibiting something herself – a new look!

Sporting a pleated, long sleeved Mulberry dress – which the style savvy royal, 30, wore almost exactly a year ago during a media event hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace – Kate’s laid-back look seemed to be paying homage to the 70s.

With those long, flowing bangs we can’t help but think she resembles another famous Kate – Charlie’s Angels star Kate Jackson.

“It is a huge honor to be here tonight,” a gracious Kate told the audience. “The Natural History Museum has a very special place in the heart of this nation. William and I are just two of millions of people who have passed through these doors and marveled at the spectacular wonders of the natural world, housed in this beautiful gallery.”

She continued, “I care passionately about what this museum stands for. Being here tonight, seeing some of nature’s finest treasures, reminds me just how precious and awe inspiring the natural world is.”
