It’s been a year since Duchess Kate launched many a bridal trend with her elegant, Sarah Burton-designed gown. Since then, there have been numerous knockoffs and homages — including now, it seems, Princess Felipa of Bavaria.

The lesser known Bavarian princess, daughter of Prince Leopold and Princess Ursula, married a commoner (another big royal trend!), film producer Christian Dienst, on Saturday in Steingaden, Germany. Felipa, 31, wore a sparkly tiara and a modest, long-sleeve lace gown — created by Munich designer Natascha Müllerschön — that looks rather similar to Kate’s, no?
