Duchesses Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have been in headlines for supposedly breaking royal rules that many of us didn't know about until they went against the status quo. A few are as silly and as mindless as Meghan closing a car door herself instead of having someone else do it for her and as Kate wearing the same outfit more than once, but none are as beloved as their royally unique style choices that rendered applause from many, and frowns from some.
Following in the late Princess Diana's fashion-forward footsteps, the two women have given us outfits that we had to draw inspiration from, so we've rounded up some of our favourites from the princess trio that you could add to your own wardrobe next time you're feeling royally rebellious.
Princess Diana was known for her daring looks and rule-breaking outfits. According to Fame10.com, she wore oversized clothes and really went against the tide, setting a trend in bicycle shorts before Kim Kardashian West went viral for them.
Meghan has been a repeat offender when it comes to dressing up her own way. She's worn an incredible pantsuit that goes against the rule that princesses should be in dresses in skirts all the time; and she's also worn a cross body bag, which isn't allowed per se. But oh! how stunning she makes defiance look.

According to Cheatsheet.com, Queen Elizabeth has a rule that requires the hemlines of royal outfits to be below the knee. Kate, however, has been spotted in numerous dresses that were slightly above-knee, and because she's worn them with such finesse, there have been no complaints on our side.
