Kate Middleton Just Channeled Princess Diana with Her Royal Blue Look During Her Tour of Scotland

While there are a handful of reasons we love an official royal tour, one thing, in particular, we look forward to is seeing the fashion, especially from Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge is currently joining her husband, Prince William, on a tour of Scotland. Oh, and she made sure to channel her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, during the couple’s visit to Turning Point Scotland’s center in Coatbridge on Monday.

For the occasion, the 39-year-old royal opted for a blue monochrome ensemble featuring a Zara blazer with a matching pleated skirt by Hope. She topped off her look with a pair of nude heels and a matching clutch.

As pointed out by Hello!, the outfit was reminiscent of an ensemble worn by the Princess of Wales during a visit to the Great Ormond Street Hospital For Children back in 1992. Diana wore a long pleated skirt in the exact same tone along with a long matching blue blazer with gold buttons. The main difference? The late princess opted for a pair of royal blue heels.

This was the second time during the tour that William and Kate honored Diana. Over the weekend, during an address to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Duke of Cambridge opened up about being in Scotland when learning his mother had passed away.

He revealed, “I was in Balmoral when I was told that my mother had died,” in reference to Balmoral Castle. “Still in shock, I found sanctuary in the service at Crathie Kirk that very morning. And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors. As a result, the connection I feel to Scotland will forever run deep.”

Two beautiful tributes to Princess Diana..
