Oh, just one would have been enough......And what seems to be latex on the collar and cuffs of Mathilde's outfit...

I normally only see this particular print on the wives of very wealthy businessmen, who adorned with their vulgar costume jewellery, beehive hairstyles and parisian silk scarfs flung around the neck, wander through the city with Louis Vuitton in one hand and a pet dog named, 'Henry', in the other.

For some reason I see Mathilde as the common factor between the Crown Princesses of Europe and I don't know why. She exudes a most agreeable nature and I guess that's possibly (?) why I think most would value her friendship and or, company.

I personally think it is a cute 'coincidence'.....my best friend and I growing up would often buy the same clothes not intending to. Of course, we went to different schools so it was not a big deal at the time, haha. I think in this case it shows a sense of solidarity and a sense of humor helps, too. They both look great so hey, why worry??

Coincidence or Not, I think they are both elegant.

Ηehehe. Poignant description of a certain crowd.
On a serious note, the pied de poule, depending on its size can vary from distinctive to ostentatious.

I think it's cute. Maxima's is brown/beige and Matilde's is black/ivory.
It is a little creepy that both women just happened to choose opaque hose and peep-toe shoes.

This week's Gente magazine (from Argentina) mentions the 'incident':

Ricos & Famosos - Gente Online

"Por su parte, Las casi gemelas y futuras reinas, Máxima de Holanda y Matilde de Bélgica, (...) fueron dos gotitas de agua." ('The almost twins and future queens, Máxima of the Netherlands and Matilde of Belgium (...) were two drops of water')

That pattern can easily remind me of a fashion magazine of 1992 But looked great on these ladies.

And I believe it is not the first time I see Mathilde on this coat.

I also remember that Máxima wore a pied de poule coat (like a trench) for her visit to Kinderdijk, during the Maxi-tour in 2001.
