The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Princess Diana‘s niece Kitty Spencer just rocked the runway during Milan Fashion Week — and the 27-year-old beauty looks just like her late aunt. Kitty stole the spotlight at the Dolce & Gabbana “Secrets and Diamonds” show on Sunday, Feb. 25, wearing the designer duo’s latest collection and a tiara, of course. Kitty, who was just six years old when Diana sadly passed away, is also the star of the brand’s upcoming Spring/Summer 2018 ad campaign.

“Congratulations to two men who do everything with such kindness and love,” Kitty wrote about the designers following the show. “Today’s #DGFashionDevotion show was an unforgettable experience, @DolceGabbana. You are geniuses and your creativity knows no bounds.” Previously, Kitty opened up about the royal family and revealed she doesn’t remember much about Diana before her death. “I was so young [when Diana was alive],” she told Vanity Fair.
“There are only a few memories, but special memories, and happy memories, and I’m so lucky to have those,” she added. Unlike her cousins Prince William and Prince Harry, Kitty grew up away from the royal spotlight in South Africa. The daughter of Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer and model Victoria Lockwood, Kitty appreciated her family’s decision to leave London following the tragic death of Diana.
“It’s the sort of environment that any parent would want to give their child. It’s a wholesome upbringing. I love that my parents gave me that,” she told The Telegraph in 2016. “I don’t think anyone knew anything about my family. It was good to grow up in an environment where people built each other up. In South Africa, you would be judged if you weren’t nice to people.”
And this is just the beginning for Kitty — who refuses to succumb to the pressure of her royal lineage. “You can opt out if you don’t believe in it, but you have to really believe in why you’re opting out and stick with it,” she added. “I don’t feel pressure to fit any box. I’ve never felt constricted in that way, but I’m aware that those restrictions have always been there for women.”
