Kate Middleton’s mother Carole surprises as she wears same dress as daughter

Fashion fans are in awe at the spectacle that Royal Ascot is bringing, but one of the most surprising outfits came from the Duchess of Cambridge’s mother, Carole.

The founder of Party Pieces looked absolutely beautiful in a stunning pink dress from Me+Em, which is sadly so popular that it has already sold out. Carole wore the piece beautifully as she accessorising with a black clutch bag and wearing the most striking black hat. The stunning piece had a gorgeous lacy detailing all across it and suited the outfit perfectly.

The dress had already been seen within the Middleton family, as Kate wore the exact same one, and in the same colour, during her royal tour of Scotland with Prince William last year.

The Duchess wore the dress as she met five-year-old cancer patient Mila Sneddon at Holyroodhouse. The mum-of-three had promised the youngster that she would wear something pink for when they met.

Mila had featured in the photography project Hold Still, where she was photographed giving her father, Scott, a kiss through a window while she was shielding because of her chemotherapy treatment.
