Kate Middleton vs. Princess Diana

Kate Middleton has certainly taken after her late mother-in-law Princess Diana style wise! Prince William and his wife celebrate their one year anniversary today and it's evident now more than ever that Kate is in line to inherit Diana's title as the People's Princess.

Kate's hats and clutches

Her most talked about style-statements, though, are her usually hats and her clutches.

Kate vs. Pippa Middleton

The dress, which Pippa matched with a rose-topped hat, ironically matched a similar dress worn by her sister, Kate, when she and her now-husband Prince William announced their engagement.
