Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the wedding of Prince Harry's cousin, Celia McCorquodale, as she married George Woodhouse at a small church in Lincolnshire, England.

Meghan wore neutrals on her recent public engagements, she surprised us in a blue and white printed dress by Oscar de la Renta for the occasion.

The breezy wrap dress was appropriate for a summer wedding. In classic royal fashion, the Duchess paired the frock with a snowy fascinator, cutout pumps, and a matching box clutch. The resulting look had her looking like a real-life porcelain vase, but she had an even better twinning moment with her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

In 1986 (when Harry was just two years old), the Princess of Wales wore a similar blue and white print on a Catherine Walker tunic during a trip to Saudi Arabia. Her version of the look included white trousers, white flats, and moon-shaped earrings. Daily Mail points out that fan account @loveprincessdiana spotted the similarities between her and Meghan's matching outfits.

Markle's tribute to her late mother-in-law might've been entirely coincidental, but it wouldn't be a shock if it was planned. The Duchess of Sussex is said to have been a big fan of the late princess; she reportedly "wants to be Princess Diana 2.0 ," Markle's childhood friend told royal biographer Andrew Morton.

The Duchess also honored Diana's style in a few ways on her wedding day. Her 16-foot veil was seen as a tribute to the princess' trailing version from 1981. Markle's second wedding dress, with its high neckline, was also deemed reminiscent of Diana's wardrobe. She even borrowed an aquamarine cocktail ring from her late mother-in-law's' collection too.
