Kate Middleton is the epitome of class and paid homage to the late Princess Diana twenty years after her death by wearing a similar floral gown while visiting her memorial.
Twenty years after her tragic death, Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry visited Princess Diana‘s memorial garden in London on August 30. Kate wore a floral Prada dress, that had long sleeves and hit her just below the knee. The dress was a clear nod to Diana, the fashion icon, who wore a very similar floral style back in 1981, at a rehearsal for her wedding to Prince Charles at St. Paul’s Cathedral. The sleeves, neckline and length are almost identical, though the colors vary slightly. It’s the perfect way to honor Diana without being too obvious.
Both women wore nude shoes as well — Diana wore flats, while Kate opted for nude heels. Kate has channeled Diana many times in the past. One famous occasion was when she wore polka dots after the birth of her first child, just like Di did as she introduced Prince William to the world. Kate has also worn Diana’s favorite tiara to important state events. And of course, Kate wears Diana’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
Diana was known for her amazing fashion, just like Kate has become a style icon in her own right. See 30 of Diana’s most famous dresses right here. William recently opened up about Diana’s death to GQ, revealing, “I would love her to have met Catherine and to have seen the children grow up. It makes me sad that she won’t, that they will never know her.” Heartbreaking!
