The Times When Kate Middleton And Meghan Markle Adopted Princess Diana’s Fashion Style
She was one of the most beloved and respected members of the British royal family. Her activism along with her glamour turned her into an international icon and earned her enduring popularity as well as an unprecedented amount of public scrutiny. Her fashion sense still lives on in a new generation of princesses who take inspiration from her.
Here are the times when Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle took inspiration from Princess Diana’s fashion style for events and occasions.
1The style icon
She is often regarded as one of the best-dressed women in history. What really set Diana apart from the rest of the royals was her ability to communicate via her clothing. Diana developed a very glamorous regal style for overseas trips. She was also deeply aware of how clothing might shape her public image and she always carried herself with style and grace.
This dress was first worn by Princess Diana in 1985 and she looked incredible in it. She wore it for a photo op at home in Kensington Palace. Kate donned something similar in 2019 when she attended the D-Day exhibition at Bletchley Park. Both women looked stunning in their dresses.
This was Kate’s way of paying a tribute to Princess Diana when she stepped out for the first time with her newborn Prince Louis in 2018. This looked very similar to when Princess Diana stepped out with Prince Harry in 1984. Both these pictures were taken at the same hospital.
4Beautiful in blue
Princess Diana was known to love colors and never wore many dull ones. Kate Middleton tried to embody this fashion style with a perfectly fitted blue suit. Princess Diana wore hers during V-E Day celebrations in 1995 and Kate wore hers during her first solo trip to the Netherlands.
Princess Diana would never shy away from bright colors and this could be seen in Duchess Kate. They both have known to wear magenta coats. Princess Diana was first seen wearing it during her visit to Vienna in 1986. Kate was seen wearing hers during her appearance at the Coventry Cathedral in 2018.
