Everything Princess Diana Wore in Australia (That Meghan Markle Should Copy)

Next week, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will embark on an epic two-week trip to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga. (We've already outlined all the need-to-know details, including their full schedule.) In honor of the impending royal tour, we decided to throw it back to Princess Diana's memorable visits Down Under—you know, just in case Markle was looking for some outfit inspo.

Princess Diana visited Australia for over a decade, beginning with her first royal tour of the country in 1983 (two years after her wedding) and ending with her final trip in 1996. In between, she seemingly saved her best looks for her Aussie trips, from a very on-trend puff-sleeve dress to a sleek statement coat. Scroll down to see the best outfits Princess Diana wore in Australia and shop the 2018 versions of each look.
