Queen Elizabeth & Princess Margaret Were The Olsen Sisters Of Their Time (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

As any two sisters know, matching outfits might just be the most embarrassing punishment parents can inflict on their daughters. By the time the Olsen sisters came along in the '90s, their awkward outfit coordination became the standard by which parents could gain inspiration.

Just four years apart, these royal sisters weren't twins, but they had complementing wardrobes that were no doubt copied by the Brit youngsters of their time.
