Hint: It involves motherhood.

Even though Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton are both super celebrities, they couldn't be more different… at least at first glance.

The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her polished, elegant style, as well as her reserved nature. Her admirers love her, in many ways, for what she chooses to conceal.

Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, is the queen of streetwear and nude selfies. Her fans love her, in many ways, for what she chooses to reveal.

There's at least one major thing, however, they have in common: they are both devoted to motherhood. And, as mothers, they both do something that other mothers around the world do, in spite of their enormous wealth: give their younger siblings hand-me-downs from older ones.

Kate Middleton is currently pregnant for the third time, after giving birth to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2. According to sources close to the royals, while the newborn, due in April, will get his or her own room in Kensington Palace, it'll be filled with "hand-me-downs and George and Charlotte's old toys." No word on whether or not that includes hand-me-down onesies.

Kim Kardashian has just welcomed a third baby, Chicago West, via surrogate, after giving birth to North West, 4, and Saint West, 2. Kim recently told Architectural Digest that she's pretty much recycling all of her old nursery items for the newborn, including her beloved $4,500 Vetro Lucite crib.

"I'm pretty much using the same crib and everything that I had for our other kids. We have a Vetro Lucite crib and we have a Royère bed in there and a really fluffy cream rug. We had a changing table made," she said. "I have a glider with an ottoman for feeding. With the first baby, I had a rocking chair, and I just love a glider so much more—you can move easier."

Does this mean that we can one day hope for a royal play date? We'll see! And for more great coverage of the royal family, know that This Is the Song That Moved Meghan Markle to Tears.
