The Duchess of Cambridge is thought to have given a special nod to her late mother-in-law on Monday (July 9).

Royal fans have debated that Kate Middleton paid tribute to Princess Diana at the christening of Prince Louis, as she was seen wearing floral pearl earrings.

Diana's favourite flower was the white rose, leading observers to think Kate was making a subtle tribute to her.

Royal experts have continued to draw comparisons between the two women, ever since Kate and Prince William announced their engagement in 2010.

It has also been noted that Kate's decision to wear white or cream at the christening of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and now Prince Louis is due to the colours perfectly complementing the Royal christening gown, worn by all three children.

Louis' gown was created in 2008 by fashion designer and dressmaker Angela Kelly. It is a replica of the 1841 original which was commissioned by Queen Victoria for Princess Victoria. It was styled on the Queen's own wedding dress. Ah, history!

The Duchess of Cambridge has also inherited several pieces of Diana's jewellery, and has been seen wearing them at various public events.
