Diana's wedding dress alone is one of the most famous garments in history.

Mary remembers the Princess's personal style: "She loved makeup and loved experimenting. It wasn’t to the point of going from green eyeshadow to blue eyeshadow, but just experimenting with ways to bring her eyes out more. It was just much more about really getting her to look absolutely beautiful all the time.". She also recalled that the princess loved to highlight her eyes and wear a lot of mascara to bring a lot of attention to her favorite facial feature.

“I think beiges and browns are just so much prettier, Simple as that.” Greenwell had a strategy behind Diana's looks: “She was someone who was in the public eye presenting herself all the time to the public,” Mary said. “It isn’t particularly appropriate to go on changing your look every five seconds. I think dramatic change is not really something for somebody who’s in the White House or in office or in a royal family, as it’s just not really appropriate."

Like Mother In Law, Like Daughter In Law

Much like her late mother in law Meghan Markle is known for her incredible beauty and style. Meghan has also been known to bend and break the rules of royal fashion by favoring a bold look on occasion. Princess Diana would likely love her daughter in law.
