Kate Middleton seemed to extend a tenuous olive branch to Meghan Markle with her fashion choice.

For the Royal Variety Performance 2023 held on Thursday night, November 30, the Princess of Wales turned heads in a teal-blue dress.

The way she pulled off her full-length dress by Safiyaa, the Duchess of Sussex would have been so proud of her doing justice with one of her favorite designer’s pick.

Meghan, 42, opted for the designer’s dresses on several occasions over the course of her working royal period.

Earlier in 2018, when she attended the Royal Variety show with Prince Harry, she was seen sporting a floral top from Safiyaa.

In the past, the Suits alum also sported two caped versions of the designer's gowns on two different events.

One of her outings was in Fiji, 2018 and the other one at the Mountbatten Music Festival in 2020; not to mention, it was her final engagement as a working royal.

At present, Kate, 41, walked on the red carpet of the charity event at the Royal Albert Hall in London, in a tailor made gown adorned with a bejeweled, high neckline and split floor length sleeves.

In Kate's version, a more angular design was added into the shoulders as she channeled a powerful pose.

She styled her brunette tresses down in loose waves and carried a crystal-encrusted small clutch.

Middleton paired her attire with matching suede pumps and accessorized her look with sapphire engagement ring, an ethereal choker and dainty pearl earrings.

Meanwhile, William, 41, opted for a classic black velvet tuxedo.

The Prince and Princess of Wales holded hands as they arrived together at the event.

They put on a strong united front in the wake of family drama aroused after the release of Omid Scobie's new book.
