Kate Middleton’s wedding dress is very similar to another royal’s bridal gown.

Middleton married Prince William in 2011. In just a few days, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary. Among the things that the public loved very much was her bridal gown which actually featured the same design as Isabella Orsini’s when she tied the knot with Prince Edouard Lamoral de Ligne.

In this forum, one netizen shared snaps of Isabella and Middleton’s dress and it is indeed very similar. From its lace bodice, V-neckline and long sleeves. They also both complimented their gown with a tiara.

The netizen said that Middleton’s dress might be inspired by Isabella’s. However, the Duchess of Cambridge’s gown is “much nicer and better cut.”

Middleton’s Alexander McQueen dress was designed by Sarah Burton. Meanwhile, Isabella’s was created by Gerald Watelet, a Belgian designer.

Initially, many thought that Middleton’s dress was original. However, according to Laura Roberts from the Telegraph, due to the similarities of the two wedding dresses, Middleton was branded as “copycat Kate.”

Isabella, an actress and the goddaughter of Silvio Berlusconi was asked about the matter and she didn’t deny the similarities.

“As soon as the Duchess of Cambridge went out to go to church, I thought her dress was a copy of mine,” she told Italian Magazine Novella 2000.

“It means Kate Middleton has good taste,” she added complimenting the Duchess of Cambridge.

Meghan Markle’s wedding dress faced the same issue. When the Duchess of Sussex walked down the aisle to marry Prince Harry in May 2018 many noticed that her Givenchy gown was similar to what Jennifer Lopez wore in her 2011 film “The Wedding Planner.” Both dresses feature bateau necklines, a simple A-line silhouette and three-quarter sleeves. In fact, at first glance, one would mistake that both were wearing the same dress.

Emilia Wickstead also claimed that Markle’s gown was a copy of one of her designs. Many netizens supported the designer saying that Markle was actually wearing an Emilia Wickstead dress.

Wickstead’s Twitter account was suspended after she ranted about Markle’s dress. She later took to Instagram and apologized for her controversial posts and changed her claims saying that it was not a copy before adding that she had the “greatest respect for Clare Waight Keller and the House of Givenchy.”
