For her first official outing with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle took inspiration from American royalty of another sort. Her tan skirt, high-necked knit top, and boots were almost identical to an outfit Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy was spotted wearing not long after her wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr.

Markle channeling the late fashion icon shouldn't come as a surprise, as the soon-to-be royal has praised her style in the past. During an interview last year with Glamour, before Prince Harry was even in the picture, Markle revealed that her favorite celebrity wedding gown was the silk slip dress designed by Narciso Rodriguez that Carolyn wore to tie the knot back in 1996.


Markle even described it as "everything goals," indicating her walk down the aisle could look very different than Duchess Kate's.
