April 26, 2018

Kate Middleton was looking particularly enchanting as she cradled the new baby in her arms. The child was wrapped up pretty nicely, so cameras did not catch much.

Kate chose a bright red dress with a white lace collar for the occasion. Her hair was tucked behind her ears and showed off a pair of pearl earrings. Prince William opted for a casual blue blazer on a light blue shirt and dark pants. Both royals looked extremely happy as they waved to the crowd.

Did Kate Middleton mirror Diana’s outfit as a tribute?

Observers noticed that Kate Middleton’s outfit at the Lindo Wing looked quite familiar. Princess Diana happened to have worn a very similar outfit once.

34 years ago, Diana made her appearance at the same hospital when Prince Harry was born. She wore a red outfit with a white peter pan collar.

Kate’s dress is a slightly different shade, and the collar is a lot larger. It was made by Jenny Packham who also designed all three post-birth outfits for the Duchess. Clearly, she took some style cues from the late Diana.


And this is not the first time the couple has coyly paid tribute to Diana. Back in 2013, Kate wore a polka dot dress, just like Diana did in 1982 when she gave birth to Prince William. It is likely that the Duke and Duchess may have decided to pay tribute to Diana with this outfit as well.

There is no telling how else the royals will celebrate Princess Diana in the coming days. Britons are already expecting that Prince Harry as well will find ways to pay tribute to his mother during his wedding to Meghan Markle. Did the princes plan these tributes together, or are they happening by chance?
