  • Melania Trump’s first outfit on her official visit was a nod to the UK, and it looks like her second one might have been a nod to Princess Diana.

    The FLOTUS wore a Burberry shirt upon landing in London, but changed into a pristine white suit to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace later that day.

    Melania’s two-piece ensemble included a pencil skirt, sharply tailored jacket and a navy collar and belt, which she accessorised with matching pumps and a wide-brim hat.

    Whether on purpose or not, it was very reminiscent of suits Princess Diana used to wear in the 1990s when on official royal duty. She often went for white and navy, though the tailoring back then was a little more oversized (but equally chic).

    She wasn’t the only one who opted for the light colour though, as Camilla also looked pristine in an all-white outfit, whilst the Queen, a lover of colour, stood out in vibrant turquoise.

    The presidential couple will be staying in the UK for three days, after which they’ll move onto the Republic of Ireland for a further three days.

    Last night they were hosted by the Queen, Prince William and Kate for the State banquet at Buckingham Palace.
