Princess Diana’s fashion legacy has reportedly influenced her two daughters-in-law, according to fashion and royal expert Rachel Birchfield. On several occasions, Kate and Meghan Markle have worn jewellery that belonged to the late Princess of Wales, and have dressed in similar attire as a touching gesture to the renowned fashion icon.
Speaking to the podcast Royally Us, Rachel Birchfield said: “It absolutely does, we see both Kate and Meghan doing nods and tributes to Diana’s style all the time.
“From Meghan’s Cartier bracelet that she wears so much publicly, to how Kate dressed for when she debuted her children, George, Charlotte and Louis, on the steps of the Lindo Wing.
“They are constantly doing nods to her fashion that they put their own twists on.
“I mean, Diana is a fashion icon and her looks will always be a part of the conversation I think.”
During her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, Meghan Markle wore Princess Diana’s famous Cartier bracelet around her wrist. The beautiful crystal bracelet had been worn by Diana several times during the 1990s.
Two diamonds from the bracelet were used by Prince Harry when designing the engagement ring he gave to Meghan.
Prince Harry proposed with a personally crafted three diamond ring, using two from his mother’s collection and another diamond from Botswana, where he and Meghan took their first vacation together.
