’s sense of style is reminiscent of ’s.

The Duchess of Cambridge has sported plenty of similar looks to the late Princess of Wales.

Both royals have been pictured in tailored dresses, bright colours and eye-catching prints.

And apparently, there’s a reason why the pair share lookalike wardrobes.

A fashion expert believes that the royal deliberately pays tribute to her late mother-in-law.

Susan Kelley, of popular website What Kate Wore, believes that she mimics Diana’s style during key moments of her life.

She explains: “The Duchess has a degree in art history. She pays attention to details and design. 

“Using that background and looking to Diana for fashion inspiration makes perfect sense.

“For me, the linkage is that of an homage, a sign of respect or acknowledgement.”
