Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have been known to pave their own paths when it comes to fashion.
Who could forget their Royal Wedding headdresses worn to Kate and William's nuptials in 2011? And that's not to mention their various bright and bold ensembles they can't help but don for many a royal occasion.
But now, the Princesses seem to be taking some style cues from a very prominent royal, and frankly, we can't blame them - because we're all doing the exact same thing.
Enter the aforementioned Kate Middleton, style icon and fashion inspiration to the masses.
Indeed the brunette beauty has graced many a best-dressed list over her time, and it seems the royal sisters Beatrice and Eugenie are just like the rest of us when it comes to stealing her style.
As they stepped out to attend a garden party at Buckingham Palace, the Princesses looked picture perfect wearing stunning, summery frocks for the daytime event.
But there was a small detail that both of them decided to include in their ensembles, and it basically screams Kate Middleton...

Yep, you guessed it - notice those trendy headbands perched perfectly atop their heads? Well they just so happen to be Kate's preferred accessory of the moment!
Indeed the trendy mum-of-three is the ultimate style inspiration when it comes to the humble headband, and we could very well have her to thank for the recent surge in the accessory's popularity.

There's no denying the style is well and truly in-vogue at the moment, with members of the fashion glitterati stepping out in them left, right and centre.
And luckily for us, some of our favourite affordable brands have got on board, creating variations of the accessory that are within our price-range, but still royally chic.

This isn't the first time tone of the York sisters have twinned with Kate of late.
Earlier in May, Middleton herself appeared to reverse the feat and take style inspiration from Eugenie herself when the brunette wore a beautiful floral Erdem dress for the debut of her Chelsea Flower Show garden design.
Incidentally, the same design had previously been worn by Eugenie barely a month before when she attended an Easter service with the Queen.
Looks like the royals enjoy taking a leaf out of each others books when it comes to fashion!
