This is not the first time she has worn a caftan, she was even dubbed as “the queen of caftans” by British news outlet the Daily Mail. She may have gotten her fashion inspiration from a 2011 visit to Morocco, where she attended a caftan fashion show in Rabat.
The occasion was in honor of the Asian Trust, a charity founded by Prince Charles in 2005 to address poverty in Southeast Asia.
