Princess Diana was the entire world’s style muse during her reign as the Princess of Wales. Her fashion-forward outfits were so iconic that even years later fans still compare her looks to those of Kate Middleton and new royal family member Meghan Markle. Over the years both of these ladies have seemed to take a hint or two from Lady Diana and often channel her iconic style in their own outfits. Meghan Markle has done so quite often with her latest public appearances, so follow along for 12 times that Meghan Markle has channeled Princess Diana’s style:

12. The Plaid Coat

As a royal, it’s tradition to honor the country you are visiting by dressing according to the country’s local colors. Princess Diana did so in February 1989 on a visit to Edinburgh. The plaid coat seemed to be one of her favorites and she donned it multiple times for public appearances to follow. Meghan Markle recently wore a similar coat from Burberry in shades of hunter green and navy on a similar trip to Scotland which was a clear nod to Diana’s look.

11. The White Button-Up

Lady Diana was one of the first royals to show off the casual side of her fashion, and especially when she began to distance herself from the royal family following the announcement of Charles’ infidelity. Her go-to off-duty style consisted of a white button up and faded Levi’s denim, which is clearly also a go-to for Meghan Markle who wore a similar look for her first public appearance with Prince Harry. Markle rocked a breezy white button-up with distressed denim jeans which many deemed questionable, but we think Princess Diana would have been a big fan!
