Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is a fashion and beauty icon for millions of women around the globe, but it appears she may take more style cues from the late Princess Diana than we realize.

As Cosmopolitan Philippines revealed, Princess Diana was rocking the Superga sneaker long before the Duchess discovered them.

As the Associated Press reported in January of 1997, Princess Diana flew into war-torn Angola on a Red Cross mission to highlight the horror of landmines. She made a statement to the press, looking as polished and poised as ever while wearing a classic navy double-breasted blazer, light-wash jeans, and casual Superga sneakers.

The Superga sneaker has been around since 1911, but over the last few months it appears the brand has made a huge resurgence thanks to the Duchess of Cambridge, Emma Watson, and a plethora of other stars rocking the ultra-comfortable kicks.

Like Diana, Kate opted to wear her pair with denim, pictured in April, but she modernized the look with a dark wash skinny jean and white sneaker.

However you wear them, the good news is these shoes retail for about $65 on Amazon, so everyone can feel as royal as Diana and Kate, at least on their feet, all summer long.
