Ever since Meghan Markle was thrust into the spotlight at the end of 2016, her style choices have been watched with hawk-eye precision. From her tour wardrobe to her penchant for high street and, of course, her wedding dress, we are a nation obsessed.
Naturally, there have been parallels drawn between Markle’s sartorial choices and those of her husband’s late mother, Princess Diana. In fact, they've worn strikingly similar outfits on numerous occasions.
Whether it’s a monochrome ensemble for a trip to Ascot, a tartan coat in Scotland, or, most recently, polka dots for the polo - there are numerous occasions where it looks like Markle might have been paying homage to Diana.
Doing her best Pretty Women impression, the Duchess – who attended a polo match that Harry was playing in on Sunday – looked impossibly chic in a pair of white shorts, which she styled with a polka-dot blouse and a wide-brimmed hat. Her mother-in-law was famously fond of spots (she once paired spotty socks with a pleated red and white polka dot skirt).
After you've dug out all the polka dots from your wardrobe, take a look back at every time Markle has taken style inspiration from Princess Diana.
