Royal fans noticed a remarkable resemblance in the images of Princess Diana and Kate Middleton

British royals are often considered to be gifted with a sense of style, and Princess Diana is a fashion icon whose looks everyone always tries to replicate. Kate Middleton made her first public appearance since early 2024 at Trooping the Color in a dress that fans noticed was remarkably similar to her mother-in-law's outfit from her 1985 trip to the United States.

The princess came to the parade in a black and white sheath dress by Jenny Packham, decorated with black trim around the collar, a striped belt and a large bow around her neck. The highlight was a large monochrome saucer-shaped hat with a long skewer. Princess Diana also pleased her fans with something similar, writes Hello!

In 1985, Prince William's mother and former wife of King Charles III visited the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., wearing a black and white suit by her favorite designer, Catherine Walker, with an A-line skirt. Over her shoulders, she threw a white jacket with an unusual bottom edge shape with a black collar, sleeve cuffs, and buttons.

The most similar to the image of Kate Middleton was the headdress. Lady Di also chose a two-tone hat with white trim and an interesting detail. It featured two long arrows - one white and the other black.

To dilute the monotonous colors of the outfit, she attached a pin with a poppy to the blazer. The Princess of Wales did the same. On the left side of the dress, you can see the brooch she received after being promoted to the rank of Royal Colonel of the Irish Guards.

In particular, even the earrings were of a similar shape. Lady Di chose flower-style poucettes with a gem in the middle, while Middleton preferred pearls that also depicted a flower.

Interestingly, the Princess of Wales also seems to have borrowed the idea of putting a huge bow on her dress from her mother-in-law. Just as Elizabeth II loved pearls, Princess Diana adored large bows and often tied them around her neck.
