Princess Diana has inspired women with her style, as well as her humanitarian work. Has Suits actress and girlfriend of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, been inspired by the Princess of Wales’ fashion?
Princess Diana’s dress has become some of the most influential fashion in recent British history.
Before her tragic death on August 31, 1997, at age 36, Diana was a style icon, dressed by Versace, Christina Stambolia and Dior.
Now it seems Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle, 36, is continuing to carry the style torch for the Princess of Wales.
Meghan has been seen in a number of outfits that pay homage to Diana’s look.
Princess Diana – like Meghan – did not shy away from sex appeal, despite her royal connections.
She was also a big fan of scarlet hues, and often wore red dresses, which beautifully flattered her English rose complexion.
In 1995 she was caught by paparazzi leaving a dinner in aid of the Great Ormond Street Hospital in a red dress, displaying her long legs and a hint of tanned chest.
Meghan was captured heading to a Today Show taping at the Rockefeller Centre Studios in July 2016, wearing a similar leg and chest-baring crimson frock – and working the cameras with the same nonchalant charm.
Simone Simmons, Princess Diana’s closest confidantes has revealed how the late royal still speaks to her from beyond the grave almost 20 years after her death. Simone Simmons from London, an alternative healer and trusted friend of the Princess, met her at the Hale Clinic – an alternative medicine centre – and became a member of her inner circle, often talking on the phone for up to 10 hours. And she still hears Diana’s voice speaking to her, holding forth on everything from her beloved sons and their love lives to Brexit. While she adores Kate and thinks she’s ‘perfect’, her comments to Simone indicate that she doesn’t believe Meghan Markle is the ideal woman for Harry.
