Princess Diana’s niece Kitty Spencer appears in controversial photoshoot
Lady Kitty Spencer has forged a successful career for herself in the fashion industry, after making her debut modelling for Dolce & Gabbana in 2017.
Now, the 27-year-old socialite has sparked controversy after appearing in a new photo shoot for Marie Claire Italia.
Kitty uploaded a photo from the shoot to Instagram, which showed the niece of Princess Diana wearing a marijuana-inspired “Happy Leaves” necklace by Bvlgari.
Kitty, who is an ambassador for Bvlgari, showed off the boundary-pushing necklace in two photos uploaded to her Instagram, where she said she had the “best time shooting”.
The symbols in the necklace didn’t go unnoticed by royal fans who discussed the design in the comments.
“Di’s niece adorned with marijuana leaf jewellery #fashiongoalz,” one person wrote.
Defending the model’s accessory, another user commented: “Bad enough they did bad to Diana now they want to go after her niece, love it Kitty, you wear it well.”
In May, Kitty made headlines for her resemblance to Diana while attending Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan at Windsor Castle.
Despite her similarities to her famous aunt, the daughter of Charles Spencer and model Victoria Aitken revealed that she has only a few memories with Princess Diana, who died when she was six-years-old.
“I was so young [when Diana was alive]. There are only a few memories, but special memories and happy memories, and I’m so lucky to have those,” Kitty told Vanity Fair in 2016.
