10 times Kate Middleton channelled Princess Diana with her fashion choices

Kate Middleton Princess Diana

The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has won plaudits for her often bold and brave choices of outfit.

However, the 37 year old's wardrobe has been inspired many times by the late Princess Diana.

Here's a list of 10 times Kate has channelled Prince William and Prince Harry's mother.

Kate’s Alessandra Rich polka dot dress with a white collar, worn at Bletchley Park on 14 May 2019 resembles Diana’s look at a Kensington Palace photo shoot in 1985.

Kate’s vibrant ensemble, with oversized buttons by Catherine Walker, is another example of her admiration for Diana's wardrobe. Kate first showcased it in New Zealand in 2014 and recently again at a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey, twinning with Diana’s 1989 outfit.


The Duchess’ tailored tartan coat dress, by Alexander McQueen, was worn in Dundee in January 2019 and previously on St Andrew’s Day 2012. Kate wore it again Christmas Day 2014 oozing class, echoing Diana’s sartorial choice by Emanuel Couture in Venice, 1985.


The Duchess once again channels her glamorous late mother-in-law in this Catherine Walker coat, teamed with a Chanel bag. She wore it on a Scandinavian tour in 2018, while Diana wore a similar outfit by Moschino in 1990.

Shortly after her wedding in 2011, Kate stunned in a floaty Jenny Packham number, at Calgary airport, which led her to have an impromptu Marilyn Monroe moment. Diana wore a similar silk design on a trip to Australia with Charles back in 1983.

The Duchess paid tribute to Diana again when she stepped out in a floral design by Prada on a visit to a memorial garden devoted to her mother-in-law in the grounds of Kensington Palace. It is reminiscent of the Princess’ frock worn at her wedding rehearsals in 1981.
