The public appearance took place just 24 hours after The Duchess of Cambridge, formally known as Kate Middleton, gave birth to the royal baby. For the occasion, she donned a special garment to pay homage to the late Princess Diana: a knee-length bespoke cornflower blue crêpe de chine dress by British designer Jenny Packham. It’s not the dress that’s special, it’s the pattern that mimics the green and white polka dot frock the late Princess Diana wore while presenting her baby William to the world as she and Prince Charles left the hospital with the newborn in 1982.
Very sweet! Take a look at Diana’s hospital departure in 1982 below, when car seats weren’t a thang!
