Twin pair: Melania Trump wears similar look to Princess Diana

First Lady Melania Trump has touched down in the UK with her husband, US President Donald Trump for a special three-day state visit.    

Melania adorned a crisp white Dolce & Gabbana dress with a navy collar along with a matching broadbrimmed Hervé Pierre hat and Manolo Blahnik navy shoes.

The First Lady greeted Queen Elizabeth while donning the chic ensemble however, that was not what sent tongues wagging.

The 49-year-old’s outfit looked eerily similar to a white and navy outfit that royal icon, Princess Diana wore over 20 years ago.

Royal insiders cannot be sure if the First Lady wore the outfit to pay tribute to the beloved Princess Di, who wore it on the 50th anniversary of VJ Day in 1995.

Princess Diana, who passed away in 1997 wore several immaculate white and navy outfits throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s and was considered a fashion icon throughout her time.

Other royal insiders noted that Mrs Trump may have taken fashion inspiration from two other “English roses”: Audrey Hepburn’s character, Eliza Dolittle in My Fair Lady; and Kate Winslet’s character, Rose from Titanic.

The Trumps enjoyed lunch with the Queen at Buckingham Palace to mark the start of their three day state visit,

The President and Mrs Trump were greeted outside the palace by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
