While the queen's Platinum Jubilee leaves much to be celebrated, may we have a moment to admire the outfit Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, wore to the big event?
Kate wore an all-white blazer dress, complete with a chic navy blue and white hat, for the Trooping the Colour parade Thursday, and people are noticing it has a striking resemblance to an outfit Princess Diana wore in 1991.
This event, marking Queen Elizabeth II's 70th year serving on the throne, brought the whole royal family together, including Prince William and Kate; their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis; and Prince Charles and his sister, Princess Anne.
Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, were also in attendance. However, they did not join the queen for the famous balcony appearance at Buckingham Palace.
The blazer-style dress worn by Kate, designed by the late Alexander McQueen, was paired with a fascinator designed by Philip Treacy. She also paired the outfit with diamond and sapphire earrings from her mother-in-law’s jewelry collection. We'd say this only adds to the Princess Diana energy Kate was exuding.
Even Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager noticed the unmissable similarity. "The hat, the white suit ... we feel like nothing is by accident with royals," Hoda said on TODAY.
Although it is not confirmed whether the duchess wore this ensemble with the clear intent of channeling Princess Diana, the side-by-side resemblance is undeniable.
"Maybe it's just a nod to (Princess Diana)," Hoda said.
Princess Diana’s similar look was from her appearance at the Gulf War Victory Parade in London with Prince Charles in 1991.
This is not the first time Kate has worn this outfit in a public appearance. She wore it back in 2021 at a reception for G7 leaders in Cornwall, England, proving there's no shame in wearing the same outfit twice.
