    Being a princess these days is about more than wearing a glittery tiara. It all started with Princess Diana, who was known for her daring and nontraditional fashion choices. She often challenged the boundaries of conventional royal attire and the public loved her for it. Now all eyes are on Kate Middleton, the soon-to-be princess, who has a look all her own. Whether strutting the runway or just grabbing a bite, Diana and Kate both did it in style. Check out just how similar some of their outfits are. Kate loves the fascinator, a headband adorned with feathers that still gives the look of a traditional hat. This tan number looks lovely with her cream coat. Princess Diana, preferred the hat, topped with lots of feathers.
