Kate Middleton Is A Fashion Plate
Most readers know that Kate has traditionally posed with Diana’s famous 12-carat sapphire and diamond ring which serves as her engagement ring. In a more uncouth display, Meghan wore Diana’s Cartier tennis bracelet to trash talk the royals during her infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Princess Diana was pictured in an iconic Kensington Palace photo shoot in 1985 wearing a handsome polka dot dress and Kate has worn similar outfits through the years. On many occasions she wore a spotted blue dress with a white collar and cuffs by designer Alessandra Rich.
In particular she wore frock for an official family portrait to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday in 2018.

Kate also looked reminiscent of Princess Diana’s postpartum look after the birth of her third child, Prince Louis, in 2018. She posed outside the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London wearing a red Jenny Packham dress. The dress was similar to the pretty red coat-dress, that Diana wore when leaving the same hospital in 1984, after giving birth to Prince Harry.
Kate looked to be paying tribute to her late MIL when she attended solemn events. Both Meghan and Princess Diana opted for all-black outfits that reflected the somberness of the occasion.
