On December 14, Prince Harry’s wife made a surprise appearance on CNN via a video in which she thanked “the shadow heroes” who helped the community during the health crisis. To record this message, the Duchess of Sussex had taken place on a bench arranged in a flower garden, “probably in her Californian property of 14 million dollars acquired with Prince Harry”, adds the Daily Mail. Wearing a low bun leaving only a few fuzzy strands to frame the face, Meghan Markle was dressed in a powder pink blouse, topped with a ponytail collar. It is precisely this last detail that caught the public eye, the lavallière collar being a real must-have in the royal wardrobe. Indeed, the famous ribbon-like knot has been popular with the Windsors, and has been for years. Her greatest ambassador? Princess Diana, who had made it her signature by declining it in every way during her years with the royal family. Known for her sense of style, the princess tragically died in 1997 can count on her two daughters-in-law, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, to perpetuate her love of fashion. The wife of Prince William is, in fact, also a fervent admirer of the lavallière collars that she deploys in abundance during her public outings. In the press, we can no longer count the times when similarities have been observed between the style of the two Duchesses and that of Princess Diana, whether it is the sets with tartan or houndstooth prints, long floral dresses, color associations or even headwear.
Meghan and Kate: style battle

Queen Elizabeth, meanwhile, appeared third in the rankings.
