Weird ...
I seriously doubt that it was a mere coincidence...isn't there any kind of previous outfit checking when two CPs attend the same event? Plus, since they know each other so well... I believe this might have been something planned. But why...? As said in Dutch...geen flauw idee.

I don't think it was planned, or at least I don't see a reason to plan a situation like this.
But if it was planned... maybe they wanted to dress in a similar way to make people think "Oh they are so close, their tastes are so similar, they are soul-friends, they even choose the same outfits!"
They don't seem very concerned or worried about this. But for us, Maxima and Mathilde's fans, this lack of creativity is a bit disappointing.

I wouldn't be suprised if they planned or else its a really bizarre coincidence! But then again they have similar style and have worn similar outfits in the past (albeit not at the same time!) so it being a coincidence is possible.

It may be presumed that both Crown Princesses have agreed to appear in somewhat similar outfits. The custom-tailored coats nicely accentuate a distinctive style of each Princess. I love houndstooth patterns. At the same time, I am sure that there will be no more appearances like this one.

I read here that this coat's Designer is Natan. I wonder if he doesn't matter with this coincidence? Usually designers don't like to see the same dress/outfit in different persons at the same time. It takes away the idea of Exclusivity.

Agreed. However, I would like to tone down Maxima's blusher/bronzer.
Hopefully, they can enjoy some time together before Mathilde needs to return home.

Maybe they done some phone before the event like girls do? Or they'd done some quick shopping before?

Mat/Max maybe we should wear something similar?
Mat/Max why not...

That's fun to see two CPss looks similar?

when you look at the pictures, you can see that Maxima wears brown and white colours and Mathilde black and white. Maybe they called each other and asked which colours they would wear and did not discuss the print?!

Both ladies look fabulous, although the coat coincidance thing is a little bit creepy, if you ask me. Mathilde is "glowing" as a pregnant woman should, and Maxima is just glowing from happiness it seems!

Pied de poule, [French for foot of the hen] name for this motif imprinted on textile, was quite common in the mid-1960s and used heavily by Dior and other French designers. The size of the motif varies widely.
Statistically speaking, the chance for them both wearing coats with pied de poule motif of the same size being random is 1:1,000,000.
Besides, the overall effect is artsy and funny, which is what the event was about. Last but not least, both seem to be throughly enjoying the moment.
