Princess Diana was one of the most fashionable women of her time, and Meghan Markle is quickly becoming a royal style icon in her own right. Here, we look back at all the sartorial tributes Meghan has paid her late mother-in-law.

BLUE AND GREEN


In 1987, Princess Diana wore a plaid dress with a lace collar while at the Bute Highland Games in Scotland. Meghan chose a similarly patterned Burberry coat for an official visit to Scotland with Prince Harry during their engagement.

TWINS AT ROYAL ASCOT


Both Diana and Meghan looked proper in black-and-white ensembles at Royal Ascot. Meghan chose to wear Givenchy, the same designer she wore on her wedding day, for her first time at the race.

CASUAL IN JEANS

Diana served up some serious '90s vibes wearing these high-waisted, faded jeans paired with a crisp white button down. Meghan Markle matched the look by wearing a classic white shirt with a pair of her favorite jeans at the Invictus Games last fall.

MATCHING NECKLINES


Princess Diana wore her high-necked evening gown to attend a reception at Spencer House in London, while Meghan chose the style as her second dress on her wedding day.

PRETTY IN GLEN PLAID


In 1988, Diana picked a sleek glen plaid suit to wear while traveling through Paddington Station in London. Meghan sported an updated version of the look, this off-the-shoulder Theory jacket, during a visit to Wales.

While attending the premiere of Julie Walter's film Just Like a Woman, Diana wore a red silk gown designed by Victor Edelstein. Meghan Markle mirrored the scarlet look during a pre-engagement appearance on the Today show.

TRENDY IN TUXEDOS


In 1987, Diana wore a chic tuxedo with hot pink details out to a nightclub. The Duchess of Sussex chose a similar ensemble, a black Givenchy pantsuit, during a visit to Ireland.

GLAMOROUS IN PINK


The blush pink Carolina Herrera dress that Meghan wore to Trooping the Colour immediately reminded us of Diana's off-the-shoulder look for a night out at the Royal Ballet in Germany in 1987.

CLASSIC BERETS

Royal women know the value of a good hat. Diana once wore a beret to the Braemar Highland Games, while Meghan wore a white version of the statement accessory at the Commonwealth Day service in London just weeks before her wedding to Prince Harry.

During a trip to Saudi Arabia in 1986, Princess Diana was photographed in a blue-and-white floral Catherine Walker ensemble. This summer, Meghan opted for a very similar Oscar de la Renta dress at a wedding with Prince Harry.

PINSTRIPES


The Princess of Wales once chose a pinstriped blazer over a navy blue shirt for a walkabout in Sheffield. The Duchess of Sussex clearly likes the pattern as well; she wore a pinstripped midi dress from Altuzarra for an appearance at the Commonwealth Youth Forum reception earlier this year.

NAVY LACE


In 1996, Princess Diana looked stunning in a sparkly navy blue dress for an evening event. Proving the shade never goes out of style, Meghan wore an equally regal navy lace ensemble years later while promoting her TV show Suits.
