But how exactly does she compare to the bashful royal bride who became the world's most photographed woman?
Catherine Elizabeth Middleton entered the public arena in a more assured way than Lady Diana Spencer.
Confident and poised, observers say she has all the appearance of someone who has been groomed for royal duty, possessing a knowing look, secure in her knowledge of William's affections and intentions.
Diana, in contrast, emerged as 'Shy Di'.

William gave Kate his late's mother's engagement ring. Let's hope it doesn't meet the same fate as a pair of earrings Wills gave Kate — her dog Otto reportedly ate them!

*Kate Middleton and Prince William Shared a House During Their College Years
During their college years at St. Andrews University in Scotland, Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a house with 2 other roommates. Kate was dating someone else at the time so although they 'live together', it was, supposedly, plutonic.
*Kate has earned a place on many best dressed lists, including Vanity Fair's 2008 list, Tatler's 2007 list, and many more. She's pictured here showing her style at yet another wedding, Laura Parker Bowles and Harry Lopes' ceremony in May 2006.

Diana, Princess of Wales (Diana Frances; née Spencer; 1 July 1961 – 31 August 1997) was a member of the British royal family and international personality of the late 20th century as the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, whom she married on 29 July 1981. The wedding, which was held at St. Paul's Cathedral, was televised and watched by a global audience of over 750 million people. The marriage produced two sons: Princes William and Harry, currently second and third in line to the thrones of the 16 Commonwealth realms.
A public figure from the announcement of her engagement to Prince Charles, Diana was born into an old, aristocratic English family with royal connections, and remained the focus of worldwide media scrutiny before, during and after her marriage, which ended in divorce on 28 August 1996. This continued following her death in a car crash in Paris along with her companion Dodi Fayed and driver Henri Paul on 31 August 1997, and in the subsequent display of public mourning a week later. Contemporary responses to Diana's life and legacy are mixed but popular interest in the Princess endures.
*Diana was the youngest daughter of Edward and Frances Spencer.
*Diana’s cousins include: Oliver Platt, Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, and Rainier III
*Following her divorce, Diana engaged in humanitarian work for the Red Cross and in campaigning to rid the world of landmines. She visited the sick, often arriving unannounced and instructing that her visits remain concealed from the media.
