Kate Middleton wore a red and white houndstooth coat at a rugby match over the weekend, drawing comparisons to Princess Diana's 1990s costume.

The Internet was more interested in how similar the clothes were than Kate's support for the English squad or her wearing the same coat as in 2018.

Comparisons between Kate and Diana have become common and often involve clothes, parenting, causes they champion, and more.

Some argue that constantly comparing the two women is lazy, reductive, and creepy.

Kate has worn Diana's sapphire engagement ring and worn clothing that resemble her.

Because there are few patterns and shapes and prior trends continually returning, paying tribute and copying are similar.

Royals should honour their forebears, but comparing Kate to Diana is sexist and reduces women to "who wore it best."

We should stop constantly comparing women and instead focus on the unique features and contributions of each woman.

Comparing two women from different eras, contexts, and circumstances is not a fair or accurate way to judge them.
