We really want to believe that Meghan Markle gave lady Di a subtle but effective fashion tip of the hat this past week as she attended the Commonwealth Day celebrations event along with her fiancé Prince Harry and future in-laws Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
She wore a stunning white and navy ensemble, complete with a crisp white beret and navy heels. Stylish but what we first noticed was that her shoes matched with Kates...
But Twitter picked up on something else:
TheCute™ RT @KateBennett_DC: Meghan Markle's beret today is by Stephen Jones, also preferred milliner of the late Princess Diana, who wore one of his berets in 1982. I love a fashion homage. Also, I'm not crying, you're crying. pic.twitter.com/hrpv37yAMC— unpforgettable pfire (@firefire100) March 14, 2018
Was this a subtle homage to Diana?
Harpers Bazaar notes that Lady Di loved her berets and loved to wear them in the early '80s. A few of hers were even designed by Stephen Jones, the designer who made this one for Markle.
This is not the first time we've seen some serious twinning from the royals. Like Diana, Kate Middleton also wore a polka dot dress after first presenting Prince George to the world.
