Meghan Markle looked radiant in a matching white coat and beret during her first official public appearance with the Queen of England for Commonwealth Day.

Meghan's white beret was designed by Stephen Jones, a favorite milliner of Princess Diana, who wore a black beret designed by him in 1982. This subtle fashion homage didn't go unnoticed by eagle-eyed fans of the future royal, according to Time.

But that wasn't Meghan's only style homage to the people's princess. Her white coat was designed by Amanda Wakeley, a British designer that Princess Diana often wore and is still a favorite of Kate Middleton's, Vogue reports.
