9 leopard swimsuits and sarongs that are just like Princess Diana's timeless summer swimwear

Princess Diana's leopard print swimsuit and sarong was a winning combo - and now it's all over the high-street for summer...

Fiona Ward

Just like her formal outfits and her activewear, Princess Diana's style continues to inspire today - and we need to talk about her chic holiday looks, including her incredible bikinis and swimsuits.

Diana's classic one-pieces, chic sarongs and simple strappy bikinis are firmly back in style these days - and there's one look that's particularly timeless. The People's Princess' leopard print look is firmly a fan favourite!

The iconic pictures were taken during Diana's trip to the British Virgin Islands with her children Princes William and Harry, sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah Mccorquodale, and their mother, Frances Shand-Kydd. The Princess of Wales' animal print swimsuit was made by Jantzen, a swimwear brand that is still around today.
