Throughout their marriage, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have paid tribute to Will’s parents in many ways. Kate Middleton has nodded to Princess Diana in her engagement dress (both wore navy blue), her leaving-the-hospital outfit after giving birth (both wore polka dots) and in wardrobe choices for Prince George that matched his father’s corollaries.

And they did. Here are some of the most iconic photos of the young couple mirroring their predecessors.
