Unearthed images show Duchess Camilla in an outfit strikingly similar to Princess Diana's 'revenge dress' look, taken the year after the Princess of Wales stepped out for the iconic moment. 

Princess Diana stepped out at the Serpentine Gallery in the glamorous, shoulder-baring Christina Stambolian mini dress in 1994, on the same day it was publicly confirmed that Prince Charles had been unfaithful to her during their marriage. 

Diana, who continued to live at Kensington Palace with Prince William and Prince Harry after her and Charles' split, wore the dress, which was famously dubbed her 'revenge dress' with a pair of sheer black tights, black heels and a statement diamond, pearl and sapphire choker.

And in unearthed photographs from 1995, Camilla can be seen in a super similar outfit, sporting a shoulder-less black dress with tights, black heels and an almost identical necklace. 

The snaps of Camilla seemingly taking style inspiration from Princess Diana were taken when she and Prince Charle headed out for an event at The Ritz in London.

Princess Diana opened up about Prince Charles' affair with Camilla during her BBC Panorama interview with Martin Bashir in 1995, telling him, "There were three of us in the marriage. It was a bit crowded."

"I desperately wanted it to work, I desperately loved my husband and I wanted to share everything together, and I thought that we were a very good team," Diana also said, adding that her childhood had made her hope for a long-lasting marriage. 

"I think like any marriage, especially when you've had divorced parents like myself, you'd want to try even harder to make it work and you don't want to fall back into a pattern that you've seen happen in your own family," she added.
