Victoria Beckham may have enjoyed herself a bit more at the most recent royal wedding than she did at the last. In 2011, while attending Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, Beckham was pregnant with her daughter, Harper, but this time around Posh was just happy to have a few more fashion options. “Quite honestly, it was such a relief not to be hugely pregnant at this royal wedding that it was a joy to be able to choose anything I wanted to wear,” she told The Evening Standard with a laugh.

Beckham wore a simple short-sleeved, navy blue shift dress with towering Louboutin platform pumps and an oval-shaped fascinator for Prince William's ceremony, while the 44-year-old designer wore her own creation for Prince Harry's nuptials: a long-sleeved, ankle-grazing dress with a matching veil hat and bright orange pumps. One thing the two dresses did have in common, however, was the color. In response to those pointing out similarities in her choices, Beckham simply said, “I love a bit of navy.”

Though Beckham stayed mum on any and all details of the reception, she did spill on the ceremony. "It was such a beautiful, incredible wedding. It was just the best day. They looked so happy, and everybody was just so happy for them," she said. "Meghan seems like a genuinely lovely woman, who really loves him. It felt very real, very honest.” The former Spice Girls member also said she was "just really honored to have been invited."

Beckham's verdict on Markle's Claire Waight Keller–designed Givenchy dress was just as glowing. “I thought she looked absolutely beautiful. It really suited her. I thought it was perfect for her. And Harry looked great," said the designer, who was once rumored to have been in the running to design the gown.

As for Beckham's most recent choice of navy dresses, the mom of four says that fans can buy it sooner than you think. “The dress is one of my favorites: It isn’t in store until November, but we’ve had so many inquiries about it that I’m seeing whether I can bring it forward.”
