Princess Diana will forever be remembered as a fashion icon, and it seems as though her legacy has been passed on to her niece; Lady Kitty Spencer.

Spencer is no stranger to high society, and over the past few years she’s also been familiarising herself with high fashion.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 27-year-old model.

Who is she?

Spencer is the oldest daughter of Princess Diana’s brother, Earl Charles Spencer, and former model Victoria Lockwood, who are now divorced.

She was born in England and raised in South Africa. She has three younger siblings; her brother Louis and twin sisters Eliza and Amelia.

You might recognise Spencer from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011, where she got a lot of attention for wearing a very unique pale pink hat.
