Meghan Markle is competing with a bespoke item for a ‘on the nose’ Princess Diana nod.
MEGHAN Markle, who accompanied Prince Harry on a three-day vacation of New York, gave a special reference to her late mother-in-law with her trendy choice of accessories.
A royal pundit stated that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent trip to New York was “clearly a Diana-inspired vacation” after the Duchess made many key “nods” to her late mother-in-law. Meghan was seen carrying a Dior Lady D-Lite purse, one of Princess Diana’s go-to handbags, to the Global Citizen Live concert during their three-day vacation.
“This was a really on-the-nose reference, if I may say so,” royal commentator Molly Mulshine observed.
“She was pictured carrying the Dior Lady D-Lite bag, which was previously known as the Chouchou bag and was renamed the Lady Dior after Diana was seen with it.”
“This is a spin-off of that bag, so it’s the Lady D-Lite, and she had a Duchess of Sussex monogram on the bag, which was D-S-S-O-S, which is a lot of letters, and she not only had that Diana-inspired bag, but she also had a Duchess of Sussex monogram on the bag, which was D-S-S-O-S, which is a lot of letters.”
“I’m guessing this was either a gift from someone or a Dior present.”
“It was a clear reference to her late mother-in-law.”
“There were a lot of tributes to her,” she added. “They stayed at The Carlyle, which was Diana’s favorite hotel, and there were a number of clothes that looked similar, like the camel coat over the black.”
“This was clearly a Diana-inspired journey,” says the author.
The Dior handbag was given to Princess Diana by French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac’s wife Bernadette in 1995, and she began wearing it to public occasions soon after.
She acquired the bag in a variety of colors in the final two years of her life and wore it to the 1996 Met Gala in New York. Due to its link with the Princess of Wales, the bag was later christened Lady D by the fashion label Dior.
Meghan’s purse was a Lady D-Lite bag, which was first introduced in 2019. It has the same silhouette as the previous model, but adds a reversible and removable shoulder strap for a sportier look.
Meghan’s gold Cartier Tank Française watch, in addition to her purse, was a tribute to Diana.
