Meghan Markle and the late Princess of Wales, Diana, have many things in common, from a love for Prince Harry to a passion for philanthropy.
No wonder where Meghan Markle got her style inspiration from.
In a statement at the fag end of 2019, Prince Harry compared the tabloid press’s coverage of his wife to the way in which his mother was treated. At the time, Harry claimed that the ‘useless campaign’ against his wife was ‘history repeating itself. He further added: “I lost my mom and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same forces.”
And it genuinely seems that perhaps Meghan takes her style inspiration from her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. Many royal fans have noted that Meghan Markle has paid a few subtle tributes to the late Princess Diana.
Meghan spoke of the importance of remembering Diana while indicating her engagement ring. She said: “I think everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness is – and the inclusion of that and obviously not being able to meet his mum it’s so important to me to – to know that she’s a part of this with us. And I think in being able to meet his aunts and – and like Julia and just different people who were so important to his mum, I’m able to, in some way, know a part of her through them and of course through him. And it’s – it’s incredibly special.”

Prince Harry added: “It is days like today when – when I really miss having her. I really miss having her around me. But I know with the ring and with everything else that’s going on I’m sure she’s … she’s with us,” he said.
On her wedding day, Meghan included forget-me-nots and white roses from Princess Diana’s memory garden, in her wedding bouquet. To celebrate her first Mother’s Day as a mother to baby Archie, Meghan’s Instagram post of mother and son posing against a backdrop of forget-me-nots (Princess Diana’s favourite flowers).
“Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered. We honour and celebrate each and every one of you.” As well as the more obvious references, Meghan has also taken sartorial inspiration from Diana, who was recognised globally as quite the style icon.
