Fashion of royal ladies does not compare, so please stop!

For years, the late Princess Diana and her daughters-in-law, the former Catherine Middleton and Meghan Markle, have been compared to each other. Why? Because their fashion choices are “similar”. Umm. There is no comparison between the three as they come from different periods. It would be like comparing Lady Gaga to Audrey Hepburn.

Diana was a fashion icon in the 80s and 90s. Her style was unlike anything seen before. She found ways to use jewelry in different ways without having to disassemble them. An iconic example is how she used an emerald choker as a headband.

As she grew into her role as the future queen consort she never became, Diana became more comfortable. In addition, she developed a style that women loved. Fast forward to the end of April 2011, when Catherine Middleton married Prince William. After stepping out of the car outside Westminster Abbey, the soon-to-be Duchess of Cambridge captivated the adoring crowds with her Alexander McQueen wedding dress, complete with Cartier Halo Tiara borrowed from Her Majesty the Queen.

Meghan Markle, on the other hand, claims that she loves fashion, but her clothing choices are not great. The recent trip to New York with the unkempt pantsuits that cost more than most people do in a year is an example. In addition, the Duchess of Sussex does not understand the term ‘fashion’ as her sister-in-law and their deceased mother-in-law do. She believes she is the ‘IT factor’ of fashion when almost everything she wears hangs out of her frame rather than sitting on her body. Moreover, it is not us who make the body ashamed. It’s an observation many people have had.

Diana: Fashion The Queen would have avoided

As she grew into her role as the wife of the future King of England, Diana’s fashion choices changed and changed into two categories; on guard as a royal and as an ordinary person in daily society. You wouldn’t see her in a ball gown while you dropped off her sons at school, would you?

Kinsey Schofield, the founder of, told us that Diana’s fashion choices were not always something Her Majesty the Queen would have worn. For example, when she was not at the gala for humanitarian reasons, she would be seen wearing clothes associated with American culture. Examples would be jumpers with the names of Northwestern University – which was the school Meghan would go to a few years after Diana’s passing – and Ivy League University, Havard.

Many of the choices Diana carried would not have suited Her Majesty the Queen. The Princess of Wales was not afraid to go out in what her gym shorts in public. You would never have captured her majesty when she was the same age.

Kinsey tells us that in the later years of Diana’s life, the former Princess of Wales would spend much of her time at lavish galas and banquets for her chosen charitable causes. In the end, this was met with spending large amounts of time in glamorous dresses.

Meghan: New Kid On The Fashion Block

When Meghan first joined the royal fold as Harry’s girlfriend, she was wearing a boyfriend shirt and skinny jeans. However, this is different from how Diana entered the scene almost forty years earlier. Kinsey says the former actress’ attire at the time was seen as “nice and relatable”. In recent times, however, her appearance in New York was to be perceived as “chic”, but instead it became “bossy”.
