Princess Diana was an extremely famous member of the royal family when she was still alive. The media constantly monitored her movements and she even became the most photographed person in the world.
Kate Middleton is one of the most popular royal women these days. She joined the royal family in 2011 and has since gained people everywhere.
However, for everything Middleton does, there are actually times when it seems that Princess Diana's memory will never fade and is constantly overshadowed by the efforts of the Duchess of Cambridge.
It is known that Kate Middleton paid tribute to Princess Diana
Middleton seems to be aware of Princess Diana's legacy and, as such, the Duchess of Cambridge often pays tribute to her late mother-in-law whenever possible.
For example, Duchess Kate gave her daughter, Princess Charlotte, the middle name of Diana. She also chose to have her children baptized in various churches that had connections with Princess Diana, such as the Royal Chapel at St James's Palace (where Diana's body was laid before her funeral), as well as St Mary Magdalen Church (where Diana baptized when she was little).
Middleton also wore some of the same pieces of jewelry and tiaras that Princess Diana wears. Her outfits are occasionally chosen to remind the public and Princess Diana, like the dresses the Duchess of Cambridge wore after the birth of their children.
Kate Middleton's costumes are constantly compared to those of Princess Diana
While Middleton does, there are times when she wants to have similar Princess Diana dresses, some royal observers try to associate many of Duchess Kate's clothes with what Princess Diana wore in the past, even if the similarities are small.
For example, if Middleton chose to wear a dress that had a little the same pattern or color as something Princess Diana once wore, it was automatically called a tribute. In more negative circumstances, the Duchess Kate will be accused of copying Princess Diana and not having her own originality.
Kate Middleton has her own style
Not everything Middleton wears is a call to Princess Diana because Middleton has her own fashion sense. Her style can be described as simple and regal, which is not surprising given the fact that she is a future queen.
Fashion stylist Melita Latham noticed that Middleton loves pastel colors and especially loves wearing them in the summer. Today, the Duchess also likes pants with wide legs, fluffy sleeves and dresses.
Leatham notes that Middleton's style is, in fact, "still undergoing a royal transformation," but there is definitely a conservative way of dressing that has become popular with women around the world.
Kate Middleton is also compared to Megan Markel
Not only Princess Diana is compared to Middleton. She and her daughter-in-law, Megan Markle, are often confronted by royal fans.
Middleton and Markle have shown time and time again that they are two very different women who have different goals in life. However, this has never stopped comparisons from being thrown their way. From their work ethic to the way they raise their children, people have many things to say about which woman does "better" in life.
Of course, their fashion choices are analyzed and compared too. Middleton and Markle actually have different body types and many distinctive styles, but there is still a constant debate over who dresses better.
Unfortunately, it does not appear that these comparisons will ever go to Middleton, Markel, and Princess Diana. They all married into the same royal family, which means that many things they do will automatically remind people of each other. After all, it is simply important for royal fans to remember that each woman is her own individual and capable of making choices for herself.
