The Duchess of Cambridge has long been a fashion icon, even before she married into the royal family, but one of her most memorable outfits was the blue dress she wore for her engagement photos with Prince William.
Eagle-eyed royal fans may have noticed that her frock looks familiar. The latest royal couple to announce their engagement is Crown Prince Hussein and his new fiancée Ms Rajwa Khaled bin Musaed bin Saif bin Abdulaziz Al Saif, who wore a strikingly similar outfit.

The royal looked dapper in a black suit and a blue tie, while Rajwa wore a stunning dress from Costarellos. With its soft blue colour, draped material, V-neck and fitted waist, it bears several similarities to the one Kate Middleton wore to announce her engagement to the Duke of Cambridge in 2010.

Rajwa paired the A-line dress, which retails for £1,455, with a delicate silver necklace and her new show-stopping pear-shaped engagement ring, wearing her long brunette hair in bouncy curls just like Duchess Kate.

Meanwhile, Prince William’s now-wife turned to Issa for her navy blue wrap dress, which cost £575. It became hugely popular with royal fans as it was made in the same blue as her sapphire and diamond engagement ring, which previously belonged to William’s mother, Princess Diana.

Similarities aside, Crown Prince Hussein’s latest portrait was met with an outpouring of love from his followers. “Beautiful couple,” wrote one, and another added: “So happy for you both.”
The Jordan Palace announced the news of the couple’s engagement on Wednesday, with the engagement taking place at the home of Ms Rajwa’s father in Riyadh, where members of both families were in attendance.
Photos shared by the Palace to Instagram showed the happy couple smiling as they celebrated the news. In the snap, Hussein rocked a similar black suit while Rajwa looked beautiful in a white dress with gold embroidery.
