Kate Middleton in Denmark

Kate Middleton just met her style twin in Denmark - her host Crown Princess Mary, who, with her bouncy blow dry and smart pointed pumps, made a very harmonious match indeed with the Duchess. The pair met this morning at Christian IX's Palace, and looked remarkably compatible in their elegant dress coats, pearl earrings and black leather gloves.

Middleton's double-breasted grey number was from one of her favourite brands - Catherine Walker - while she actually rewore her jewellery from yesterday (a pearl necklace from Monica Vinader, and a pair of pearl-embellished hoop earrings from Maria Black, a jewellery designer from Denmark). She carried one of her most reliable handbags - Mulberry's Amberley Satchel - while her companion favoured an under-the-arm clutch.

The similarities between the pair's style have been well-documented. They both favour long-sleeved printed dresses for slightly more informal duties, subtle pearl jewellery that's not too distracting and, of course, classic court heels.
