There's a Hidden Meaning to the Dress Kate Middleton Wore to Honor Diana

This is so sweet.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, and even though it’s been two decades, we still miss Diana’s style and grace. Leave it to daughter-in-law Kate Middleton to pick a dress that Diana would've loved — and to show just how classic Princess Di’s taste really was.

Yesterday, Kate joined Prince William and Prince Harry visited Princess Diana’s memorial garden to pay tribute to their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Kate choose Prada for the occasion, with an elegant $2,340 silk-crepe dress covered in orange poppy print. 

There's a hidden meaning to Kate's Prada dress, beyond just being lovely. InStyle points out that poppies are a flower often used in the U.K. as a symbol of remembrance for those who have passed. The dress's silhouette also brings to mind Princess Di, who was really fond of wearing that same pussybow neckline

The poppy dress isn't the only hidden meaning from yesterday's memorial: Vogue reports that the new White Garden at Kensington Palace where the tribute took place was fertilized with the 60 million individual blooms from flowers that mourners left at the palace’s gates after Princess Diana died.
