We Almost Missed Meghan Markle’s Subtle Fashion Tribute to Princess Diana During Her Latest Outing

Meghan Markle took a page out of Princess Diana’s fashion playbook at her latest engagement— and we’re totally here for it.

On Monday, the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry made a surprise appearance at the Preschool Learning Center in Los Angeles to volunteer in the organization's garden. During the annual event, the former royals replanting flowers and healthy foods alongside children.

The Assistance League of Los Angeles, which runs the learning center, posted an Instagram slideshow showing the couple in action. “In addition to helping the children replant the Preschool Learning Center's garden, they spent time with them, sharing their appreciation for nature and helping to instill the importance of healthy eating,” part of the caption read. “We truly appreciate their time and care for our students.”

The event also happened to land on the 23rd anniversary of the passing of Prince Harry's mother, Princess Diana. In a tribute to honor her, Meghan and Harry planted the princess’s favorite flower, the forget-me-not. However, this wasn’t the only way the duchess paid tribute to her late mother-in-law. She also mirrored one of Diana’s greatest looks—denim on denim.

For the occasion, the 39-year-old duchess opted for a pair of dark wash jeans, a blue denim button-down and her Rothy's The Black Point flats ($145). The Princess of Wales sported this trend on multiple occasions (especially throughout the '90s). While on a skiing holiday in Australia with her young sons, she rocked an all-denim ensemble with a brown belt and leather jacket.
