At a time when everyone’s eyes are on Kate Middleton’s and Meghan Markle’s fashion trendsetting, it was quite a breath of fresh air when one royal stepped out wearing – gasp! – something she had worn decades prior.

On Monday, when the royal family attended the Commonwealth Day ceremony at Westminster Abbey, Markle sported a $1,000 coat while Princess Anne, the Queen’s only daughter, flaunted an outfit that was possibly older than Markle herself.

PEOPLE reports, the 67-year-old was seen wearing a modest outfit that she was first photographed wearing in the late ’70s or early-’80s, according to expert Joe Little. Even the accessories were similar. And the hairdo.

As @RoyalReporter Tweeted: “Meghan wore an £895 coat yesterday, Kate a £650 one but hat tip to Joe Little @MajestyMagazine, who spotted thrifty Princess Anne was wearing an ensemble he thinks dates back to the late 1970s.”

This isn’t Anne’s first royal recycle, as PEOPLE points out. She’s been snapped wearing the same blouse 35-years apart.
