7 Times Royals Wore the Same Dress as Their Mother

Who wouldn't want to borrow from a queen?

It's no surprise that members of the royal houses of Europe have extraordinary wardrobes—and palace closets big enough to store it away for the next generation. Here, seven times princesses wore a dress borrowed from their mother or mother-in-law, plus one American example we couldn't resist including.
