Meghan Markle paid tribute to late mother-in-law Princess Diana by channeling her wardrobe during her appearance at the Invictus Games over the weekend.
The 40 year old attended the opening ceremony of the veteran sporting event on Saturday wearing an ivory off-the-shoulder top with ruching at the centre paired with black tailored trousers.
Meghan looked stunning in the off white-bodysuit from designer Khaite’s latest collection, which appeared to be an almost identical style of that worn by the Princess of Wales decades before.
The elegantly fashioned Cerise Knotted Bodysuit, as it is titled on the designer’s official website, is comprised of stretch-cotton jersey forming a slim fit perfect for wearing underneath high waisted skirts and trousers.
Meghan was pictured sporting the design, which retails for £620, with black court heels as she wore her dark brown hair in a sleek up do, accessorising the chic look with a gold choker necklace and a pair of white pearl stud earrings.
Fans were quick to notice the Princess Diana outfit reference given by the Duchess of Sussex — who was also seen sporting a Cartier watch worn by the late Royal earlier that day as she arrived at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands.
Princess Diana was captured wearing a similar style to Meghan’s off-the-shoulder piece with ruching at the chest when she was photographed by Mario Testino back in 1997.
The Princess of Wales was pictured in the elegant top just five months before she died, smiling whilst lying on her side as she posed for Peruvian photographer Mario.
The prestigious portrait photographer has caught images of several iconic figures throughout his career including Kate Moss, Beyoncé, Madonna and Naomi Campbell.
Mario has also taken several photos of the Royal family over the years and his protégé, British photographer Alexi Lubomirski, famously took the official portraits for Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May 2018.
Meghan’s nod to her late mother-in-law in her outfit came as she appeared onstage at the Invictus Games opening ceremony to introduce her husband to the massive crowd watching from their seats in the Zuiderpark arena.
Appearing incredibly proud of Harry she announced: "I could not love and respect him more and I know that all of you feel the same because he is your fellow veteran.
“Having served two tours of duty in Afghanistan and 10 years of military service, he is the founder of the Invictus Games and the father of our two little ones, Archie and Lilli. Please welcome my incredible husband Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex."
