Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton both stepped out wearing pieces by their wedding dress designers, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen, respectively, for Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Friday, October 12.

The Cambridges and Sussexes arrived together to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle with Markle and Prince Harry in one car and Middleton with Prince William in the other.

The Duchess of Sussex, who married at the same venue in May, looked resplendent in a navy dress and matching coat by Givenchy, which she paired with a hat by Noel Stewart.

She also wore McQueen to Prince Louis’s christening in July.
