Is It Just Me, or Does Kate Middleton Look Like a Harry Potter Character in This Coat?
During Kate Middleton's most recent outing to Ireland's Braid Arts Centre on Feb. 28, fans on social media couldn't help but notice something pretty big about her fashion choices. According to some, the duchess, who wore a baby blue belted Mulberry coat, bore an uncanny resemblance to Harry Potter's witches of Beauxbatons. For anyone who's not a Potterhead, the students at the all-girl, French wizarding school in the film and book series are known for wearing light blue coats and matching top hats as their uniform — very similar to Kate's ensemble of choice during her outing.
"Kate Middleton serving Beauxbatons realness, hun," one person tweeted. It's likely that Kate didn't intentionally dress like the characters from the film, but there's no denying the similarities between her outfit and theirs. Read ahead to see more photos of her coat.
