Princess Diana was thought of by many as an icon, both for the charity work that she carried out raising awareness of important causes, to the statements she made style-wise.
And it seems Prince William’s wife, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, has also opted to do this, as there’s a very poignant meaning behind her engagement ring choice, which also once belonged to Diana.
And Diana often opted for accessories to say something meaningful.
When she gave birth to William, Charles bought her a very sentimental engraved necklace, and Kate wears a similar one now in tribute.
So it’s hardly surprising that there’s a touching reason why Princess Diana was once pictured wearing two watches in 1981.
The unusual move was a subtle tribute to then fiancé Charles.
She made the decision while watching Prince Charles play polo, according to Marie Claire.
The gold one with a thin strap was her own watch, and then the other one was Charles’ watch, which she wore to wish him luck .
While their marriage sadly didn’t work out, it was small gestures like this that fans believe show just how dedicated Diana was to her husband to be at the time.
