How Kate Middleton's Fashion Honored Princess Diana At British Remembrance Sunday Service

Since her marriage to William, Prince of Wales, Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, has transformed into a fashion icon, with many of the outfits she wears to royal events selling out within hours, which has been called the "Kate Effect" (via Hello!).

Kate also uses fashion to make a sentimental statement, including wearing outfits inspired by other members of the royal family. Before the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Kate started to follow in her grandmother-in-law's footsteps by incorporating bright colors into her wardrobe, a move inspired by the queen's own colorful ensembles (via Town & Country). At the queen's funeral, Kate paid tribute to the late monarch by wearing a four-strand pearl and diamond choker from Elizabeth's collection, as well as a pair of pearl drop earrings that were gifted to the queen when she married Prince Philip in 1947, according to People.

Queen Elizabeth isn't the only royal who has had an influence on Kate's style. The princess has also channeled the style of her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana throughout the years. For example, when Kate made her debut engagement as the new Princess of Wales, she donned a Dolce & Gabbana coat dress that was reminiscent of a black coat dress that Diana wore in 1988, per Glamour.

And for this year's Remembrance Sunday service, Kate once again gave a nod to her predecessor with some special jewelry.

Kate wore Princess Diana's earrings to Remembrance Sunday

While attending Great Britain's Remembrance Sunday service, Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, paid tribute to her late mother-in-law by wearing diamond and pearl drop earrings that had belonged to Princess Diana. Kate has previously worn the earrings twice before: During the BAFTAs in 2019 and at the 2022 Royal Ascot, per the Daily Mail.

Although Diana passed away before Kate married William, Prince of Wales, the couple still make sure to keep the late princess's memory alive for their three children, Prince George of Wales, Princess Charlotte of Wales, and Prince Louis of Wales. The kids make Mother's Day cards for Diana each year, and William has revealed that he often speaks about his mother during bedtime. 

"It's hard because obviously Catherine didn't know her, so she cannot really provide that — that level of detail," he said in the 2017 documentary "Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy," per People. "So, I do [when] regularly putting George or Charlotte to bed, talk about her and just try and remind them that there are two grandmothers, there were two grandmothers in their lives, and so it's important that they know who she was and that she existed."
