Meghan may be establishing herself as a fashion icon, but royal watchers cannot help but notice the subtle similarities in style between Meghan and Diana.

The Duchess of Sussex made an appearance at the wedding of Princess Diana’s niece Celia McCorquodale sporting a blue and white printed dress by Oscar de la Renta for the occasion.

And her choice echoed the Princess of Wales, who wore a similar blue and white print on a Catherine Walker tunic during a trip to Saudi Arabia in 1986.

This is not the first time Meghan has channeled the People’s Princess.

The daring pale pink Carolina Herrera dress Meghan Markle wore to Trooping the Colour 2018 is a reminiscent of Diana’s off-the-shoulder Catherine Walker design she wore to the Berlin Opera House Gala in 1987.

View the gallery to see how Princess Diana and Meghan have worn similar outfits over the years from the little black dress to the daring off-the-shoulder number.
