Did Meghan Markle pay homage to Princess Di with this white beret?


We really want to believe that Meghan Markle gave lady Di a subtle but effective fashion tip of the hat this past week as she attended the Commonwealth Day celebrations event along with her fiancé Prince Harry and future in-laws Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Was this a subtle homage to Diana?

Harpers Bazaar notes that Lady Di loved her berets and loved to wear them in the early '80s. A few of hers were even designed by Stephen Jones, the designer who made this one for Markle.

This is not the first time we've seen some serious twinning from the royals. Like Diana, Kate Middleton also wore a polka dot dress after first presenting Prince George to the world.
