Angelina Jolie is no stranger to the royal family, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see that she has adopted some of the official style rules. On Thursday June 28, the actress attended the Service of Commemoration and Dedication of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George at St. Paul’s Cathedral, wearing a dove gray Ralph & Russo dress with matching gloves and hat. Of course, Angelina looked stunning, but we can’t help but wonder whether she might have been taking some fashion tips from Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. The 43-year-old actress and humanitarian, who is an honorary dame and has met Queen Elizabeth II on a number of occasions, looked like royalty during her latest outing — and her outfit seems to have been inspired by the two duchesses.
Kate is known for her love of simple yet statement-making hats, which Angelina mastered with her gray fascinator. As for the way Angelina’s look resembled something Meghan would wear? Well, it comes down to two simple things: the color and the neckline. Since becoming a member of the royal family, the Duchess of Sussex has established her love for neutral tones and open bateau necklines, which she has worn on a number of occasions. And if that wasn’t enough, Meghan also wore Ralph & Russo for her engagement portraits. Combine the four together, and Angelina has mastered her royal style.
Ahead, take a closer look at Angelina’s ensemble — you’ll quickly forget that she isn’t actually part of the royal family after all.
