Did Kate Middleton Wear the Same Thing in This Year's Christmas Card as in the One from 2015?

Signs point to yes.

There's a lot to discuss about this year's just-released Christmas card from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge—from Prince Louis's confident stance to Prince George's casual leg kick.

But it's perhaps the least remarkable part of the image—Kate Middleton's seemingly anodyne sweater-collar-jeans combo—that has us doing double takes. After all, it was only three years ago that the Duchess donned a near-identical outfit for the holiday family photo.

Even stranger, Prince Louis is covering up the same side of her top as then-baby Princess Charlotte did back in 2015. And talk about sibling resemblance: not only do they look alike, they're displaying similar expressions. The two young children are even sporting similar collars.

A close examination of Kate's outfit reveals precious few dissimilarities. It looks as though her 2015 sweater may have been a V-neck as opposed to a crew collar, and possibly a touch lighter shade of gray. Her jeans and shirt, on the other hand, could very well be the exact same garments. An ultra-tight crop on the Duchess even unveils matching hoop earrings!

After our exhaustive scientific investigation, all we are left with is more questions. Is this a purposeful Easter egg, a treat planned to delight the most avid royal watchers? Did the family deliberately re-stage portions of a previous portrait? It's hard to say whether that would be more or less interesting than the other possible conclusion: that the Duchess of Cambridge, entirely by chance, reprised the exact same look, three years apart.
