Meghan Markle is a true style inspiration for people all over the world, combining casual looks with elegance and creating incredible outfits. Among her most striking looks is, of course, her wedding dress - a minimalistic dress with long sleeves. However, what many people don't know is that Princess Angela of Liechtenstein wore a very similar look when she married Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein in the 2000s.

Angela from Liechtenstein is a notable name in the history of royalty, as she became the first woman of African descent to marry and be part of a royal family active in Europe. Born in a province in Panama, called Bocas del Toro, she moved to the United States to attend high school and followed her studies in the fashion industry, studying at the renowned Parsons School of Design.

 

Her remarkable talent gained repercussions while still in college, when she received the Oscar de la Renta award. Then, Angela became the creative director at Adrienne Vittadini and opened her own brand.

 

The princess married Maximiliano three years after the beginning of their relationship. For the big day, she designed her own dress, of course. The much-loved piece consisted of long sleeves and a bateau neckline - very much like the dress of Meghan Markle. In addition, the similarities don't end there: her entire silhouette was similar, her tiara, and even her minimalist jewels. Can we consider Angela to be our new fashion inspiration?
