Meghan branded ‘creepy’ for ‘copying’ Diana – but Kate was praised for it
April 26, 2021
Meghan Markle has been branded 'creepy' for following the fashion legacy of Princess Diana – but the Duchess of Cambridge was said to be 'honouring' her deceased mother-in-law by doing almost the exact same thing.
The Duchess of Sussex seems to be constantly in comparison to Kate Middleton – with hypocrisy following the former Suits actress everywhere.
On a recent post in a royalist Facebook group, the Duchess of Sussex was branded 'creepy' as images compared her style to her husband's mother, the Princess of Wales.
One commenter said: "Isn't it weird to dress like his mother?"
"Disturbing!!! Clearly unbalanced. Not surprising Harry wanted to distance her from his beloved family," another wrote.
Others simply wrote: "So creepy."
However, some people came to Meghan's defence, saying: "You can find multiple pics of Kate in similar outfits to Diana too, it does not mean they are trying to be like her."
Another added: "There’s nothing wrong in admiring someone’s sense of style, it happens every day all over the world."

"She looks beautiful and is obviously making an effort. I’m sure Princess Diana would accept her and just want Harry to be happy," another wrote.
Even some who aren't her biggest fans said: "I'm not a Meghan fan, but I can see where there are double standards."
These Markle fans were met with replies comparing the wives of Prince Harry and Prince William while praising Kate for doing what they believe is 'disturbing' behaviour from Meghan.

One wrote: "Meghan has no comparison to Diana whatsoever. Kate and Diana are very similar in beauty and personality inside and out."
Another said: "Kate is more royal than Megan."
So, why do royals wear similar clothing?
The answer is pretty simple – it's the royal protocol for women within the royal family to always look 'chic and modest.'

Over the years, royal women have become fashion icons with some dresses appearing on multiple royals and members wearing outfits made by the same designer.
According to Cosmopolitan, royal fashion rules dictate that when on royal tours the Duchesses should wear colours that represent the country they're visiting or an outfit from a designer based there – so naturally some outfits would be similar colours and styles.
