Eagle-eyed Twitter user @HRHWessoxBlog noticed something that the rest of us missed in our breathless coverage of last weekend's royal wedding: Prince Edward donned a different-colored version of the same cat-covered that he wore to his own nuptials back in 1999!

A historical review of photos shows that Queen Elizabeth's youngest child has always had a thing for amusing ties though. Below, take a look for yourself.
