Sure, Prince William and Prince Harry may be Princess Diana's direct offspring. And yes, their superbly gorgeous Duchess wives may be the subject of many a sparkly spotlight (weddings, births, and all), but where does that leave Lady Kitty Spencer? The 27-year-old muse and model of such fashion icons as Dolce & Gabanna and Bulgari, Spencer just so happens to be the eldest daughter of Diana's brother, Earl Spencer. And, as hinted, the beauty and fashion world has become increasingly infatuated with the English fashion model and royal. I mean, can you blame us? She pretty much embodies both of the unattainable roles many of us mere mortals have fantasized about since childhood.
Of course, since she's Princess Diana's biological niece, the uncanny resemblance between the two is hard to deny. And recently, we had a supremely intense flare-up of dopelgänger déjà vu when Spencer posted the below photo from backstage at a Dolce & Gabanna show in Italy. Which, of course, sent us hurtling to the archives to find a direct comparison to her beautiful aunt. And…
Behold! Of course, there are some noticeable differences. (For one, Princess Diana was never one to stray too far from her signature nude lip, and Kitty's Bordeaux hue would have been an epic departure), but the spot-on hair color, perfect brows, and huge blue eyes? Goosebumps.
To keep the magical momentum going, we decided to comb through Spencer's Instagram account to find other instances of likeness with the potential to make the hairs on the back of your spine stand up. Keep scrolling for five more times Princess Diana's niece was her exact doppelgänger.
Sandy-blonde hair, a wispy pink lip, and, yes, those aforementioned doe eyes: Princess Diana, is that you?
Clad in rich hues, vintage vibes, and traditional English fashion, Spencer's lined eyes and understated makeup exude nostalgia.
Lady Kitty Spencer may have had one of the best fashion and beauty looks of all the guests who attended May's royal wedding. Like Diana, Spencer truly knows her colors—and how to accent a glowing complexion.
Princess Diana had some of the most iconic fashion and jewelry moments in history, and a velour or sequined black gown (with an amazing necklace) was a head-turning theme. Here, Spencer emulates.
When Spencer posted this adorable throwback approximately one year ago, we couldn't help but notice the resemblance to her two princely cousins when they were young. Just us?
