Royal commentator Richard Palmer rejected the rumours saying that Prince Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was wearing polka dots dresses as a sign of respect towards the late Princess Diana who also wore them frequently. The Duchess of Cambridge has added polka dot pieces from Alessandra Rich, Emilia Wickstead, L.K.Bennett, Topshop and more to her ever-growing collection. She sported a gorgeous navy polka dot dress at the All England Lawn and Tennis Club to watch the Wimbledon men’s singles final between Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios last weekend.
However, Mr Palmer dismissed the fashionable link to the Princess of Wales.
Royal Round Up host Pandora Forsyth began by asking: “Now lots of people have been saying on Twitter that Kate has been wearing polka dot recently.
“Now we do know that the late prince Diana or lots of polka dots as well.
“Do you think this is a conscious decision, or do you think it’s just the fact that it’s fashionable? Kate looks great in it.
“Or do you think it’s very much a sign of respect towards the late Princess Diana?”
Mr Palmer said: “I don’t think it’s anything to do with Diana. I think it’s just fashion has come around again, and I think it’s as simple as that.
“I mean, that’s life, isn’t it? When I first started working in local newspapers some years ago, I thought it was tremendously exciting that you’d work on a Saturday and for a couple of years, I thought, I’ve done this stuff before.
“I’ve done exactly all of the, you know, exactly the six or seven different baits and other things.
“But it’s the same with fashion. Things come and go. And polka dots came back in.”
