The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Lincolnshire, in the weekend to attend the wedding of Prince Harry's cousin Celia McCorquodale's in Stoke Rochford. Meghan Markle arrived at the venue wearing a floral print maxi dress while Prince Harry walked hand in hand with his wife looking stunning in his suit. However, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the dress Meghan chose to wear for the wedding looked a lot like the outfit Princess Diana chose to wear in 1986.

As reported by The Sun, several people on the internet were quick to draw similarities between the two dresses. Instagram fan account loveprincessdiana posted a side-by-side picture of Meghan and Diana in their dresses. The pattern on Meghan's dress resembled a lot like the one Diana wore. People were quick to comment on how both the ladies looked stunning in their respective choices of outfit. 

"Beautiful prints on two beauties," one commented. While another added, " Really??? She's copying Diana's style." Meanwhile, another seemed to insist that the two ladies looked beautiful in their respective way and maybe, Meghan was not copying Diana but just being herself. "Only one Diana, Meghan is her own person, with her own style. Hope they let her be her own person and not try to copy Diana. It just looks strange otherwise," the comment read.

This is not the first time that people theorized that Meghan has been trying to copy Princess Diana when it comes to her choice of outfits. On June 9, Meghan had joined the rest of the royal family to attend the Queen's 92nd birthday celebrations. Meghan was spotted wearing a stunning pale pink off-the-shoulder dress. While many thought that she might have broken the royal code by wearing an off-shoulder dress, others were quick to point out that Princess Diana wore a similar dress during one of her public appearances. 

As reported by PopSugar, during a visit to the Berlin Opera House in 1987, Princess Diana was spotted wearing a light pink Catherine Walker ballgown. While the material for the dress had been different, both the dresses looked quite similar. Both of them had been an off-shoulder dress and had pink buttons down the bodice. Meanwhile, even Princess Diana's royal butler seems to believe that Meghan is trying to be like the late princess. 

Talking to E! Grant Harrold, told the website that Meghan was trying to learn from Diana as to how to treat people. He described  Meghan's gesture as "really, really sweet," but adds it's not "normally" something the Queen would do. "It's something younger people do," and added, "She's got her own way of doing things... You look at the energy of Princess Diana and she was very much somebody that would hug people. She was famous for it, wasn't she?"
