Princess Diana's influence was strongly felt on Tory Burch's Spring 2020 runway, and it seems like the rest of the royals made an appearance at New York Fashion Week, too. Though the style connection may be more subtle, we thought of Princess Di as soon as we spotted the '80s-inspired polka dots at Carolina Herrera. Some thorough research confirmed that Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, was also a fan of the print in the early '90s.

Kate Middleton, who still reaches for Michael Kors Collection separates and regularly repeats some of her trusted pieces from the label, owns an A-line coatdress that can easily be compared to the skirt suit Kaia Gerber debuted. Finally, Tom Ford's tailoring always gets a touch of glamour, and this season it came from a slinky cami underneath a blazer. Let me guess: you're getting flashbacks to Meghan Markle's Altuzarra suit too?

While we still have designer collections to explore in London, Milan, and Paris, it seems like it's not just the Meghan Markle effect that's real. The entire British royal family continue to inspire mood boards from year to year, even as trends come and go. Behold, the four looks we're calling out that fit the bill so far.
