Princess Diana's twin niecesLady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencerlooked flawless as they turned out to celebrate the reopening of an iconic fashion boutique.

The 30-year-old sisters wore sleek matching black outfits to the event at Longchamp’s New Bond Street store.

They looked stunning – with their perfectly-styled blonde locks and dewy make-up – as they posed for photographs with handbags bearing Longchamp’s emblematic horse logo.

The twins were among a host of famous faces who showed up to support the reopening of the French fashion house’s London boutique. Founded in Paris in 1948, Longchamp is known around the world for its chic handbags, luggage, shoes and accessories.

Model Suki Waterhouse, 30, and Pixie Geldof, 32, also stepped out at the event – alongside model androyalLady Amelia Windsor, 27.

Eliza and Amelia are the daughters of Diana's brother Charles Spencer and his former wife Victoria Aitken. Last year theyopened up about their auntin their first ever joint interview for fashion magazineTatler.

The cousins of princes William and Harry admitted they had no idea of Diana's impact on the world until after her death, as they were raised in South Africa.

Lady Eliza said: "Growing up in South Africa, I really had very little idea of how significant she was in the world until I was much older…

"She always made an effort to connect with us as children and had a talent for reading children's hearts."

She recalled how they were once approached by a photographer while taking a stroll on Noordhoek, a beach in Cape Town, with their dad's sister.

"Obviously it could have been quite terrifying for us, being so young and not understanding what was happening.

"But she turned it into a game of who could get back to the car first. It was amazing how she protected us in a way that made us feel safe and not frightened.

"We had no idea what she was doing at the time. As a child, I realised the enormity of the loss for my father and family.”

Amelia also told how the pair and their siblings Lady Kitty and Louis Spencer have followed their cousins William and Harry in open discussions surrounding mental health.

She said: "We have come a long way in terms of the conversations, and I hope there will come a time when the stigma is completely removed and that people will be able to ask for help and not feel judged for having mental health issues or struggling emotionally."
