Duchess Kate gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Monday, April 23, at St. Mary's Hospital in London. A mere seven hours after giving birth, the now mom-of-three stepped outside of the famed Lindo Wing wearing a Jenny Packham red frock with a white, lace, Peter Pan collar.
At first, people praised her look, comparing the knee-length dress to the red and white ensemble Princess Diana wore during her baby reveal outside the Lindo Wing in 1984 when Prince Harry was born. That is reportedly the look she was going for. However, a week later, some Twitter users had another surprising thought.
Some users started pointing out that Duchess Kate's dress bore a striking resemblance to the one Mia Farrow wore when she played Rosemary Woodhouse in the 1968 horror movie, "Rosemary's Baby". The movie follows Rosemary as she gives birth to the son of Satan.
Clearly, this was not Duchess Kate's intention, but Twitter users still had a field day with it. One user posted a side by side picture of the two dresses, calling the similarities "discomforting". Other users praised the ensemble by saying they loved the "Rosemary's Baby" vibes.
Kensington Palace has not commented on the apparent mistake, but insiders have stated that her intention was to honor her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. The dress, which is estimated to cost $3,000, isn't the first Jenny Packham ensemble Duchess Kate has used for a baby reveal.
She wore a cornflower blue and white polka dot dress with cap sleeves and beige heels for Prince George's debut on July 22, 2013.
On May 2, 2015, Duchess Kate introduced Princess Charlotte to the world in a yellow and white floral dress with three-quarter length sleeves and nude heels. Both of those dresses were also custom-made by Jenny Packham. For all three reveals, Duchess Kate donned her signature blowout and beautiful 12-carat, oval shaped, blue sapphire and diamond engagement ring that once belonged to Princess Diana.
It appears that the proud parents aren't paying any attention to the buzz going around Twitter about Duchess Kate's outfit. Prince William happily revealed that the new baby, Prince Louis Arthur Charles, is doing "very well" and that he's even sleeping well already. The baby, who will be formally known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge, is fifth in line for the throne after both of his siblings, his father, and grandfather.
