Did Meghan Markle Just Rewear a Look from Her Royal Wedding Eve?

Meghan Markle's Trooping the Colour outfit looks familiar!

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, adorably entertained some of the young royals behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace Thursday, appearing to rewear a dress from another special day. Meghan's off-the-shoulder navy outfit appears to be the same dress by Roland Mouret that she wore on the night before her royal wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.

For the outfit's second spin, Meghan accessorized with a straw Stephen Jones hat with a dramatic brim and oversized navy ribbon that swooped to the opposite side. She added a delicate pair of drop earrings and gold rings, as seen in closeup photos with Zara Tindall's kids Mia, 8, and Lena, 3, and Peter Phillips' daughter Savannah, 11.
