Kate Middleton's houndstooth coat was a subtle tribute to Princess Diana

However, there was another element of Middleton’s attire that drew intense attention from those with long memories of royal fashion. The bold red and white houndstooth echoes one of Princess Diana’s favorite garments: the sleek Moschino dress suit she wore to Princess Eugenie’s christening in December . (In keeping with Diana’s rebellious spirit, Moschino was an especially bold choice for the royal at the time, given the Italian fashion house’s bumbling, pop-culture-adjacent aesthetic.)

The ultimate parallel between the dress choices of the Princess of Wales, past and present? Princess Diana also 1991 put her Moschino blazer back on for similar reasons as Middleton. During the royal visit to the Commonwealth of Canada with then-Prince Charles, Diana wore the same suit while touring the city of Toronto, which is probably famous for the country Maple Leaf Banner. It seems that when it comes to fashion diplomacy, some rules never go out of style.
