Was Kate Middleton’s Dress An Ode To Princess Diana?

Among all the adorableness of the Prince of Cambridge's first public appearance today is a moment much more subtle than William's hair quip. Kate emerged from St. Mary's Lindo Wing wearing a precious polka-dot Jenny Packham number — a frock strikingly similar to Princess Diana's outfit for William's birth. While it's a heartbreaking reminder of Lady Di's untimely passing, it's also a beautiful homage to William's late mother, and an indication of Middleton's continued efforts to keep her memory alive. We hope this is just the beginning of sweet traditions for the brand new family. Now, before we get too sappy, who wants to take bets on when the replica version hits the Internet?
