It's safe to say that Diana inspired Christian Dior. The Lady Dior bag was originally known as the 'Chouchou' but changed its name in 1996 after Diana was seen using it. The royal was rarely seen without the statement bag and it became synonymous with her effortless style.

Meghan carried one of Princess Diana's favourite handbags

Although it's not confirmed if the mother-of-two was carrying Princess Diana's personal handbag, the timeless bag is still one of the brand's most instantly recognisable and popular pieces, so it's no surprise it's also one of Meghan's favourites in her collection.

The sleek and refined style of the Lady D-Lite bag is fully embroidered with a black Cannage motif and the front features a signature Christian Dior print. Equipped with a wide, reversible and removable embroidered shoulder strap, the medium Lady D-Lite bag can be carried by hand, worn over the shoulder or crossbody. Simply exquisite!
