Ever wondered what Kate Middleton and her mother-in-law the late Princess Diana have in common apart from their obvious connection to Britain’s first family? Well, it is their impeccable sense of fashion!
They are a generation apart but both the royal ladies have charmed people with their charismatic smiles and winning ways. Another aspect where Kate is reminiscent of the people’s princess is her stylish wardrobe.
Kate and Diana’s magenta coats seem eerily similar even though the former donned her’s in 2015 whilst the Princess of Wales had debuted hers as early as 1990.
Both Kate and Diana have pulled ebony with aplomb. Wearing broad collared coats with matching hats and poppy brooches, the two look classic, each in her own time! What’s noteworthy is that even twenty-three years since Diana first wore it in 1993, its twin looked just as chic on her daughter in law in 2016.
In 1985, Princess Diana had donned a white coat and a matching hat on an official trip to Australia. In 2018, Kate put on a similar ensemble on the occasion of her daughter’s baptism.
Kate loves skiing…just as Diana did. What catches the eye, however, is the similarity in the duo’s choice of outfit. Scarlet! Just like Diana before her, Kate loves to go skiing in crimson outfits!
Diana wore a feathered cap to complement a beige ensemble in 1981. Kate Middleton replicated it in 2006. This was even before she even became a royal!
Fluid and Glamorous
Their flowing black dresses worn in different eras and crafted by different designers have the same vibe about them.
Monochrome dresses anyone? Diana’s 1990 ensemble resonates with Kate’s choice of apparel in 2011.
