The Duchess Of Cambridge Twinned With Princess Diana During A Royal Visit In Sweden

'Same material as Princess Diana’s jacket...😍😍'

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen wearing a fabulous red and white coat during her tour of Norway and Sweden with Prince William.

The houndstooth coat she sported by upmarket label Catherine Walker appears to have been a couture piece, as it’s currently not seen on the brand’s website.

Diana, Princess of Wales wore a similar outfit nearly 30 years ago during a walkabout after a Christening at Sandringham with a young Prince William.

As well as looking radiant in the classic coat as she greeted crowds outside the Matteusskolen school in Stockholm, the Duchess of Cambridge wore burgundy pumps and a small bag to match.

“Kate’s outfit is similar to one Diana wore years ago...makes me smile,” commented an onlooker via Instagram.

Another’s comment read: “Same material as Princess Diana’s jacket...😍😍.”

While another fan noted the similarities between the two looks, adding the it was “sweet.“

Lady Di’s houndstooth jacket was designed by Moschino and though hers was not an all-over red and white houndstooth coat, the black and white pencil skirt of the same pattern, sheer tights and dark red pumps justify the comparisons.
