During the 40-year-old's appearance at Global Citizen Live on September 25, she was spotted carrying a similar bag that Diana used to own — the Lady Dior, which costs almost $5,000.

The late princess — who died in a car crash in 1997 — got the bag in 1995 when French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac's wife, Bernadette, gifted it to her.

Since Diana wore it so often, the brand named the design of the bag in her honor.

In May, the former TV star wore the late royal's gold Cartier Tank Française watch, which is worth $25,000.

Harry and Meghan even named their daughter, Lilibet, after his mother.

"Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home," the pair said in a statement in June. "Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales."

Even though Meghan may have caused some drama within the royal, some believe Diana and the mom-of-two would have gotten along quite well.

"She would warm to Catherine, her initial shyness on the public stage reminding her so much of her own early trepidation in front of a screaming crowd," claimed Andrew Morton, the author of Diana: Her True Story. "As for Meghan, she would find the energetic American mesmerizing and intimidating."
