The Duchess of Sussex stepped out in vintage Dior for Lena Tindall’s Christening and the world could not help but notice how strikingly similar it looked like one worn by former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Meghan, 37, who is expecting her first child in a few weeks, looked stunning in a luxury silk burgundy coat. The coat, which is believed to be from William Vintage, looked strikingly similar to the one Jacqueline wore while she was pregnant in 1960.

Meghan is known for typically avoiding maternity dresses and mostly relies on styling non-maternity wear to flatter her maternal figure.

Previously, the Duchess won comparisons to the former First Lady when she stepped out in a white pillbox hat to a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.

She teamed the stylish ensemble with a Stephen Jones hat and a box bag by Victoria Beckham.

Although Meghan’s coat had a similar shape and placement to the one worn by Mrs. Kennedy, the fabric appeared to be lighter. Mrs. Kennedy was expecting her son, John F. Kennedy, when she donned the coat.

Mrs. Kennedy’s younger sister passed away on February 15, 2019. She was often compared to her older sister, whose successes often overshadowed her.

Dating back to their childhood in New York City and East Hampton, the duo could be quite close. However, years later they maintained the barest amount of contact until they finally reconnected during the last months of Jackie’s life in 1994.

Kennedy biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli said the sisters never had a “black and white” relationship. They lived through turbulent times and shared a turbulent bond.

“There were always shades of grey, and when you try to paint that relationship with a wide brush stroke it never works because there were times when they were very close,” he shared.
