Kate Middleton attended the Trooping the Colour event during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee wearing Princess Diana’s sapphire jewelry.

The celebration – which honors not only Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne but also her birthday – kicked off Thursday with the annual Trooping the Colour procession and balcony viewing.

Princess Diana also wore a crisp, white ensemble while appearing with Queen Elizabeth and a young Prince Harry during the Trooping the Colour ceremony in 1992.

While the entire royal family — including the Queen, Kate’s three children and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall — all coordinated in shades of blue, Middleton, 40, opted for a white version of her favorite Alexander McQueen coat dress, paired with a navy Philip Treacy hat.

Princess Diana dazzled in a similar look in 1991 while attending, alongside Prince Charles, a parade honoring military personnel who had served in the Gulf War.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore sapphire and diamond drop earrings, a matching necklace and her engagement ring, all of which belonged to Princess Diana.

Princess Diana wore the stunning drop earrings on multiple occasions, including to the 1996 Met Gala.

Middleton’s white dress and contrasting hat may also be a reference to an outfit worn by Diana in 1991 to watch a parade of military personnel who had served in the Gulf War. Her white dress featured button closures and elbow-length sleeves, paired with a wide-brim, black-and-white hat.

Of course, Middleton wasn’t the only royal making references to the past. She also dressed her youngest son, 4-year-old Prince Louis, in the same nautical sailor suit Prince William wore to Trooping the Colour when he was just 2 years old.

Elder children Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, matched the theme in a blue suit and periwinkle dress, respectively.

Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth wore a powder blue coat with white embellishments and a coordinated hat, while Prince William, Prince Charles and Princess Anne all sported their military uniforms.
