Looks like this princess took inspiration from Pippa Middleton’s wedding dress

A very royal look.

Harry and Meghan aren’t the only royals tying the knot.

We know that Pippa Middleton isn’t exactly royalty but the fact that her sister will one day be Queen of England mean we feel like she’s a princess, or at least a duchess or something.

Her ivory lace wedding dress was one of our favourite celebrity bridal gowns of 2017 and it looks like another royal-to-be has taken inspiration from her.

Model and lawyer Alessandra de Osma married Prince Christian of Hanover last weekend in her native Lima, Peru and wore a dress reminiscent of Pippa’s

Alessandra opted for long sleeves for her dress but other than that, the two looks are pretty similar.

She also wore her hair pulled back with a tiara like Pippa did, though hers was just a little more blingy.

The royal couple first met in 2005 when she served as a tour guide when he visited Peru but they didn’t start dating until years later, reports Harper’s Bazaar.

They got engaged in April 2017 and their big day in Lima was actually their second wedding as they had a civil ceremony in London back in November.

Prince Christian is second in line to the throne of Hanover, a now-defunct kingdom in Germany.

Incredibly, he’s a distant relative of Princes William and Harry – their granny, Queen Elizabeth is the great-great-grandaughter of Queen Victoria, who is related to Prince Christian via her daughter, Empress Frederick.

This means he’s a very distant heir to the British throne.
