Meghan Markle may not be an official member of the royal family just yet, but it seems she's already been on the same style wavelength as Kate Middleton for quite some time now.

Last night, the Duchess of Cambridge attended a gala at Kensington Palace and for the occasion, she wore a black lace gown by Diane von Furstenberg. The expecting royal, who's currently in the second trimester of her pregnancy, previously wore the same DVF dress back in November 2014 when she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte.

But the Duchess-approved 'Zarita' dress by DVF has already been worn by Meghan Markle in the past—making for an unexpected royal twinning moment between the two women. The Suits actress, who's currently dating Prince Harry (and sparking major engagement speculation), stepped out in the same lace dress for a red carpet appearance back in 2012. Markle, however, opted for a short, navy blue version of the dress while Middleton went for a black full-length version.

Five years later, DVF still carries the same lace dress (which both women prove is a timeless wardrobe essential) and miraculously, some of the colors and styles are still in stock for those who want to channel Middleton and Markle's look. In fact, the short black version is currently on sale for $139 at dvf.com.

Despite the fact that Markle and Prince Harry have been dating for over a year now, the two have kept a relatively low profile and the actress has yet to make any public appearances alongside Kate Middleton. But if their twinning DVF dress moment is any indication, the two women are bound to make a dynamic style duo in the future.
