According toThe Financial Times, Diana was initially gifted the bag in 1995 by the then-First Lady of France, Bernadette Chirac. At the time, the bag had just been designed by Dior’s then-designer Gianfranco Ferré and it was still unnamed. Diana began to wear it everywhere, even to the Met Gala, and in 1996, Dior renamed the bag the Lady Dior, in honor of Diana.

Markle is not carrying the original 1995 design, but the Lady D-Lite, a reimagined version by Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri in honor of the bag’s 25th anniversary last year. “I made the bag soft, changed the dimensions and the materials, then added opaque finishes and an ultra-opaque leather,” Churi told

FT. “I transformed it into a piece with infinite potential.”Markle’s bag is also custom, featuring her title, “DSOS,” embroidered in black on the front. Despite the differences between Markle’s and the original, the accessory choice is an obvious nod to Diana, considering her history with the design.
