11 Things Kate Middleton Clearly Learned from Princess Diana

Kate Middleton

Ever since Kate Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge, people have been comparing her to Princess Diana, the favorite People's Princess. Of course, no one can compare to Diana, but Kate is a popular royal in her own right, each day earning more respect and fans. While Kate and Diana have some stark differences -- they also have some major similarities. So much so that it appears obvious that Kate is quietly behind the scenes studying Diana's ways. 


Or maybe not so quietly, as rumor has it that not only did the royal family show Kate video tapes of Diana that she could learn from, but Diana herself left behind audio tapes for William's future bride. So sweet!

Even years following her death, Diana is still with all of us today, but mostly her family. Her legacy will live on in her memory and in those she left behind. We know that Kate would have had so much more to learn from Diana if she were still alive, but the princess already had such a lasting impact, that we are able to see bits of her in Kate today. 

When you're new to the whole royal thing, it's natural to need a little guidance. But Kate has been part of the royal family for many years now, and we are still seeing influences from Diana in her daily life. Here are 11 things Kate clearly learned from Princess Diana.
