Her striking beret, designed by milliner Stephen Jones, had special resonance for the royal family: Jones was a favorite of Princess Diana, Harry and William’s mother. And Diana was also prone to topping off her look with a chic beret. The subtle nod to Diana’s fashion sense did not go unnoticed by sharp-eyed fashion fans and followers of the future royal bride.

Markle’s footwear also came to many spectators’ attention: she appeared to be wearing the exact same navy suede pumps as the Duchess of Cambridge for the day’s events.
