Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has channelled the late Princess of Wales in a stunning all-white ensemble at her latest royal engagement.

Princess Diana was known for her chic fashion sense and was often spotted in pristine white blazers, which she would pair with everything from tailored skirts to flowing dresses.

There was the double-breasted white blazer she wore with a Catherine Walker dress to the Cannes Film Festival in 1987.

© Provided by Are Media Pty Ltd Princess Diana was fond of a white blazer.

In 1986 she accessorised with a thick black belt worn over a white blazer, then in 1995 she arrived in Buenos Aires in a classic white skirt suit.

In fact, Diana was so fond of a tailored white blazer that she was even spotted recycling the same styles years apart.

Now Catherine has taken a leaf from her late mother-in-law’s style book and donned her own white blazer with a chic modern twist.

Meeting with partners who helped bring her Hold Still photo project to life, the Duchess of Cambridge looked elegant for one of her first in-person engagements in weeks.


Gallery: Royals spotted in spring’s biggest trend (Australian Women’s Weekly)

Kate Middleton

Here is Kate in THAT midi-skirt. It’s devastatingly chic and would look entirely at home on the runway in Milan.

Kate Middleton

Kate wore this buttoned-up polka dot dress with a peter pan collar to an event in 2019. It’s quite a refined take on the pattern, which will never go out of style.

Kate Middleton

Kate arrived at the Stewards Academy in 2016 in a ’70s inspired polka dot wrap dress, which is a look that could work for any occasion.

Now for the polka dot maternity dress we will never forget! Kate never ever stops wearing this pattern.

Princess Mary

Here is the Parisian-approved outfit Mary donned to the Generational Equality Forum. The chunky ’80s gold buttons and small polka dots are a feast for the eye.

Princess Mary

In 2005, during a royal visit to her home town Hobart, Mary wore this yellow and brown polka dot dress. It may be worlds away from her 2021 look, but it’s still a unique take on the eternal trend.

Queen Letizia

The Queen of Spain wore this classy polka dot shirt to an Easter Mass in 2018, and it’s perfect office inspo.

Queen Letizia

This dress Letizia wore to an event in 2018, and we can just picture wearing this outfit as we holiday on the Amalfi coast. Oh, Letizia, you never miss!

Princess Beatrice

Kate isn’t the only royal to wear a polka dot dress while pregnant. Princess Beatrice wore this stunning Self Portrait dress to Wimbledon this year, and it perfectly complimented her pregnancy glow.

Princess Eugenie

Princess Eugenie also tried out the trend in 2011 for the Epsom Derby.

Princess Diana

Princess Diana forecasted jumpers and midi-skirts back in 1986. Sure, the polka dots here are a little loud, but Diana’s red and white pairing is to die for.

Princess Diana

In 1991, Diana was as in love with polka dots as ever. But years after her red look, she put together a more refined and polite polka dot blazer and skirt set.

Princess Charlene

To Thanksgiving mass in 2010, Princess Charlene wore an ’80s inspired brown polka dot and gold skirt and blazer. Her cropped brown leather gloves are a total highlight.

Catherine wore a blazer dress with a chiffon midi skirt by Self Portrait, a brand loved by her and other royals including Princess Beatrice and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

The skirt’s delicate fabric and midi length kept the look young and fresh, and the royal styled it with minimalist jewellery and her hair in a sleek ponytail.

It’s not the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has taken inspiration from Diana’s wardrobe and likely won’t be the last.

Catherine chose the outfit for a special gathering with the people who made her Hold Still photography project possible.

The project, which she began during the UK’s first coronavirus lockdown in 2020, encouraged British citizens to document their experiences through photos.

It inspired a massive outpouring of support and later spawned a photography book which debuted this May titled Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020.

On Wednesday, in the UK, Catherine shared photos from her meeting with all the people who were involved remotely during the lockdowns.

“Thank you to the brilliant partners who made Hold Still a reality!” she penned.

“It took a long time to bring everyone behind this incredible project together in person but tonight we finally managed it.”

The Duchess of Cambridge went on to thank all the people across the UK who contributed to the lockdown project.

“The most special thanks must go to the thousands of people across the country who took time to share their experiences of lockdown. Without them, the project really would not have been possible.”
