19 Times Kate Middleton and Princess Diana Basically Wore the Same Outfit
These ladies rocked some classic styles.
Easy being green
For the 1990 Italian State visit to London, or a 2012 honoring of Irish guards, the uniform is the same: green dress coat with a pillbox hat.
Whether at a charity appeal for the London Lighthouse in 1996, or campaigning for the 2017 Children’s Mental Health week, these women knew the meaning of a “power suit.” Both look absolutely fierce in matching red skirt-jacket combos. Learn style tricks to make you stand out at work, too.
A pink dress and matching hat are tough to pull off, but these royal women both looked stunning in their bright outfits. Diana wore hers to a garden party in Buckingham Palace in 1983, and Kate wore hers to a Trooping of the Colour ceremony in 2017.
There’s nothing like a big white hat to make you look absolutely polished while keeping out of the sun, as proven by Diana at the Royal Ascot in 1987 and again by Kate at the Queen’s 90th birthday parade. Learn the best hat for your face shape.
When Princess Diana accepted a charity donation from All Nippon Airways and Takashimaya department store in 1989 and when Kate visited the Land Rover BAR headquarters in 2016, both wore nautical-inspired outfits.
Walking on sunshine
On her 1983 British Royal Tour of Australia, Princess Diana wore a sunny yellow dress. Kate Middleton looked just as cheery in 2011 for her own Royal Tour in Canada.
Bright for baby
In 1984, Diana stepped out after giving birth to Prince Harry in a red outfit with a white peter pan collar. After giving birth to her second son on April 23, 2018, Kate paid tribute to Princess Di by wearing a very similar outfit. They both look very happy presenting their new children to the world for the first time. Next, read about the exact line of succession to the British royal throne.
