When Kate Middleton showed off her new baby just hours after delivering the new Prince Louis, fans of the royal family were quick to compare her red dress to the one Princess Diana wore after giving birth to Prince Harry. The Jenny Packham dress that Kate wore on April 23 was very similar to the 1983 dress.
You can't blame people for making the comparison. Both young mothers were showing off a new prince, and the dress had the same bold red color. The comparisons were particularly caused by the white Peter Pan collars on both dresses.
Throughout the years, Kate has seemed to directly mirror the style of her husbands late, beloved mother. It's a touching tribute to her continuing influence on her sons' lives and her continued hold onto the English heart.
However, there's a less heartwarming comparison to be made. At the time, people apparently missed that the dress is—scarily—a nearly direct replica of a dress Rosemary Woodhouse wears in the 1968 horror film "Rosemary's Baby."
Kate's dress echoes the dress Mia Farrow wore in the movie. They share the same floral lace collar. It's possible she resembles the horror movie character more than Princess Diana. But we're sure that Kate isn't saying that she's just given to Satan's child like Mia Farrow's character did in the movie.
Comically, one Twitter user suggested that Kate did this on purpose. They wondered if she possibly has a bit of a dark sense of humor. She drew "Rosemary's Baby" comparisons back in 2015 at Princess Charlotte's 2015 christening.
She pushed the little princess into the church in a retro-style pram. It reminded many of the stroller on the iconic movie poster.
