Even though it's been 20 years since her death, Princess Diana's style has proven to be timeless—with even Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton channeling similar outfits since being married to Prince William. And now, you could own some of her actual clothing items...IRL.

According to the Telegraph, three dresses that the iconic princess wore and owned are being auctioned off by Kerry Taylor Auctions, with each dedicated to a specific moment of Diana's life. Being that Princess Diana was passionate about philanthropy and giving back, it wasn't uncustomary for her to donate her clothes to friends, charity, second-hand shops and Christie's.
