As their last stop in their whirlwind tour of India, Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton evoked memories of the late Princess Diana.

A photograph released by Kensington Palace shows the couple sitting on a bench with the Taj Mahal in the background. Their last stop was to see the iconic structure in Agra.

The bench the couple is sitting on became known as the Princess Diana bench, after she sat on it during her tour of India in 1992. At the time the photo was captured, rumors were swirling that Diana and Prince Charles’¬†relationship was beginning to crumble.

 The iconic image shows Diana sitting on the bench alone. Some say it predicted the end of her marriage. Diana and Charles formally separated that same year. Four years later, they divorced.
The image of Kate and William gives off a very difference feel, however. The couple is sitting close together on the bench, smiling broadly with the Taj Mahal standing magnificently behind them.
They looked very much in love for the entire trip.
