Kate Middleton’s Mint Blazer Paid Tribute to *This* Royal Family Member

Oops, she did it again. Kate Middleton, 41, gave royally-obsessed fans some major Princess Diana vibes when she arrived on the second day of Wimbledon rocking an eye-catching ensemble. 

Earlier this week, the Princess of Wales made a special appearance at the prestigious tennis tournament, which took place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. 

According to Hello! Magazine, the royal (who is also an AELTC patron) came dressed in a vintage-looking Balmain mint green blazer that featured a wide shoulder design, a V neckline and large round white buttons. She also paired the look with a long white pleated skirt and a matching set of earrings.

The princess took a page out of her late mother-in-law’s fashion catalog for her recent Wimbledon look. If you remember, Princess Diana wore a similar mint green blazer in September 1990. 

At the time, the beloved princess stunned in an oversize mint blazer with the same white V-neck, but for this outfit, the attire featured shiny golden buttons instead of white ones.

This isn’t the first time Princess Catherine has channeled Princess Diana. Last month, the royal attended Garter Day rocking a black and white polka dot dress designed by Alessandra Rich—and the outfit instantly reminded royal admirers of a previous look worn by Princess Diana in the 1980s.

In June 1988, Diana wore a similar polka dot ensemble while attending the Royal Ascot in England. She also paired the look with a black-and-white clutch purse and a matching brimmed hat.
