Kate Middleton Is Basically A Samantha Doll Come To Life (PHOTOS)

Kate Middleton is becoming a style icon in her own right, but we always did get the feeling she reminded us of someone familiar.

Today, attending a Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, the Duchess of Cambridge looked elegant in a formal black coat by Temperley London with a black hat atop her perfect brown waves.

Seriously, they are perfect -- so perfect, in fact, that we realized that Kate has always reminded us of one of our favorite American Girl dolls, Samantha. Sure, their outfits aren't identical. But Kate does always have that impossibly perfect, impeccably-dressed look typically achieved only by inanimate dolls retailing for over $70.

Don't believe us? Check out a photo of Kate in black at today's Remembrance Sunday service, plus a few more lookalike instances we've detected over the years.
