Isabella Orsini says she was more astonished than most by the gown Kate Middleton wore to wed Prince Wil­liam last month.

That’s because Orsini wore a very similar dress first -- when she married a Belgian prince in 2009.

The new duchess, she quips, “has good taste.”

Orsini’s dress was designed by Belgium’s Gerald Watelet, Middleton’s by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen.
