In November 2010, Prince William and Kate announced their engagement after a decade of dating, and the couple discussed how they would approach their future as the Prince and Princess of Wales.

"William's mother was this massive iconic figure. The most famous figure of our age. Is that worrying? Is that intimidating? Do you think about that?" ITV's Tom Bradby asked.

"Obviously, I would have loved to have met her and she obviously she's an inspirational woman to look up to," Kate told Bradby during their televised chat. "Obviously on this day and you know going forward and things, you know it is a wonderful family, the members who I've met have achieved a lot and you know very inspirational and so, yes, I do."

The social media post included footage of both Princesses of Wales, and fans couldn't help but celebrate the two royals.

"You’re just like her kind and beautiful," one user wrote. Another commenter threw a little shade at Prince Harry's wife, Meghan Markle, writing, "She has met you..you always will be the best daughter-in-law."

Although Kate is often compared to Diana, William made sure to clarify that his wife is her own person.

"There's no pressure though," he said during their ITV appearance. "There's no pressure, because like Kate said it is about carving your own future. No one is going to try to fill my mother's shoes, what she did was fantastic. It's about making your own future and your own destiny and Kate will do a very good job of that."

William made sure to help the public recognize Kate as an individual, but he also paid homage to his late mom when he popped the question. William asked for Kate's hand in marriage with Diana's iconic sapphire and diamond wedding ring.

"It is a family ring, yes. It's my mother's engagement ring," William shared. "So I thought it was quite nice because obviously, she's not going to be around to share any of the fun and excitement of it all — this was my way of keeping her sort of close to it all."
