Royal wedding dresses have always influenced bridal trends - often years after the big day is over.

The super-extra gown that Lady Diana wore when she wed Prince Charles in 1981 inspired a decade of puff-sleeved wedding dresses, while Kate Middleton's iconic 2011 Alexander McQueen dress brought long sleeves and lace back into bridal fashion.

It's only natural that Meghan Markle's wedding dress would spawn some copycats too.

The former actress went for custom Givenchy when she wed Prince Harry back in May.

The dress's fit and simplicity divided fans but one person who clearly loved it was Duchess Sophie of Württemberg.

The German royal got married this week and went for a very similar look for her big day.

The boat neckline, the sleeve length, the material, the fit - the dress is practically identical to Meghan's one.

The only major difference we can pick out would be Sophie's choice of veil; it's lace and more of a traditional European veil like we'd expect to see on a continental royal bride.

Sophie married Count Maximilien of Andigné, a French aristocrat, at the Castle of Tegernsee in Germany on Saturday 20 October.

The bride's family are descendants of the former royal family of the Kingdom of Württemberg, which existed until 1918.
