Meghan Markle might have a lot of similarities to the late Princess Diana, but there will only ever be one Diana says former palace press secretary Dickie Arbiter.
Princess Diana was just 36 years old when she was killed in a car accident in Paris in 1997, when Prince William was 15.
With an aunt as iconic as Princess Diana , you’d be forgiven for shrinking into the sartorial background – but not Lady Kitty Spencer. The cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry has been making her own name for herself within fashion circles the last few years, but it was her appearance at the royal wedding that brought her to the world’s attention. Wearing a hand-painted green, floral Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda dress with a ornate Philip Treacy hat, the 26-year-old hit the top of many royal wedding best dressed lists. Lady Kitty has been buzzing on the social scene for a while now, often sitting front row at fashion shows and sipping champagne at the fanciest parties. Also a model, Lady Kitty has become a muse of the creatives behind D&G, first appearing in their autumn winter ’18 show as part of the DG Millennials squad – along with the likes of Lottie Moss, Pixie Lott and Rafferty Law – and posing in their spring summer 2018 campaign. Signed to Storm Management, Kitty has also been bagging campaigns with the likes of Bulgari and editorials with Vogue and Elle . What’s more is that away from the camera, Kitty has been honing an enviable personal style of her own.
