Last Sunday night, Game of Thrones (opens in new tab) ended its eight-season run with a controversial series finale that had fans buzzing all week long.

On Monday, Kate Middleton (opens in new tab), the Duchess of Cambridge, stepped out for the press day at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show wearing her hair in a style that many onlookers noted was reminiscent of the hairstyles worn by the women of Westeros and Essos in the HBO hit.

Kate wore her hair (opens in new tab) in a half-up, half-down braided style when she arrived Monday afternoon to give her grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II (opens in new tab), a tour of her "Back to Nature" garden (opens in new tab) at the event. Kate wore a stunning, long, floral printed Erdem dress (opens in new tab) for the occasion, but even that couldn't distract eagle-eyed fans from her Dany/Sansa-esque hairstyle.

Royal reporter Emily Andrews (opens in new tab) captured pictures of the back of Kate's hair (opens in new tab) and posted them to Twitter. Take a look below:
