Meghan Markle and Prince Harry totally copied Kate Middleton and Prince William's outfits from 2012

Even Prince Charles, William and Harry's father, donned a similar blue colored shirt when he was on his tour of West Africa in 1977

Meghan Markle is clearly making heads turn with her fashionable wardrobe choices on her first royal tour with Prince Harry. Both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex looked absolutely radiant when they arrived on Wednesday in their tropical ensembles to visit the University of the South Pacific as part of the Fijian leg of their royal tour.

However, eagle-eyed royal fans were quick to notice something about the couple's choice of clothing: Meghan and Harry's tropical garbs looked eerily similar to the clothes the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wore in the Solomon Islands as part of their Diamond Jubilee tour back in 2012.

As a matter of fact, it is being reported that even Prince Charles, William and Harry's father, donned a similar blue colored shirt when he was on his tour of West Africa in 1977, with a few existing photos showing him biting into a pineapple at the time.

The pregnant Duchess, who is currently on tour with her husband Prince Harry, appeared in a $2,110 AUD (£1,151) Frida Kahlo-inspired silk dress by Parisian brand Figue. As for her husband, Harry chose to win over the awaiting crowd in a light blue Hawaiian T-shirt with black trousers and brown brogues.

On the other hand, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, at the time of their Diamond Jubilee tour which took place back in 2012, wore almost an identical set of clothing. Prince William made his appearance in a patterned light blue shirt, while his wife Kate was seen dressed in a strapless pink and burnt orange dress.

And even though the tours of both sets of royals were more than six years apart, royal watchers seemed to notice that both Meghan and Kate chose to go for the exact same matching wedge espadrilles with their bright and floral-themed dresses on their respective visits.

Although copying Kate's already-worn style can be seen as a safe option for the newly pregnant Meghan, it looks like Prince Harry's fearless wife still has a few fashion faux-pas to recover from, especially the one from her visit to Tonga. Meghan wore a striking red dress but, unfortunately for her, she forgot to remove the 'return tag' which was seen hanging from her dress.

Meghan's label was very well visible as she walked along a red carpet to the sounds of local singers wearing grass skirts at Fua'amotu Airport in Nuku'alofa, Tonga's capital. The bright red floral dress from Self Portrait, which seemed to mirror the color of the Tongan flag, also saw the Duchess accessorizing it with a Christian Dior clutch and Manolo Blahnik BB pumps.
