Kate Middleton channeled Princess Diana in her latest public outing outfit. Duchess Kate, Prince William, and their son Prince George attended a rugby game over the weekend.

Spectators compared Kate Middleton’s look to one of her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana’s. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a wool jacket entirely manufactured in England for the occasion. Princess Diana wore a similar wool jacket in 1993 when she watched England and Wales play rugby. 

The trio watched England take on Wales in an exciting match in the Six Nations Championship. Prince George’s parents serve as patrons for the opposing teams. Kate’s team was victorious, winning 23-19.
