When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding aired, I had my eyes glued to the TV for all of the pomp and circumstance, to catch a glimpse at the bride’s dress, and for the history of it all. But what I didn’t expect was to be captivated by another royal: Lady Kitty Spencer.
The young royal is the niece of Princess Diana and definitely inherited her style instincts. In fact, when I started investigating Spencer’s style, I was surprised by just how many of her outfits look just like ones Princess Diana wore before her. Some are uncanny—like the floor-sweeping blue long-sleeve sequin dress Spencer recently wore that is a near replica of a style Princess Diana wore in the ’90s. Or the off-the-shoulder black dress–and–choker necklace combo that Princess Diana wore over 20 years ago that Spencer replicated just a few months ago. Ahead are seven times Kitty Spencer dressed exactly like her aunt Princess Diana.
