The Duchess of Cambridge has just had the honour of preceding the Queen down the aisle of St Paul’s Cathedral along with two future Kings at Tuesday’s service of thanksgiving for the Diamond Jubilee.
The Duchess of Cambridge has also returned to what she wears best: Alexander McQueen. After sporting a red frock on Sunday and covering up with a black coat on Monday – both by the Brit brand – this is the DoC’s third McQueen outing in as many days. What a hat trick! Sarah Burton is fast proving to be her go-to designer for such high-profile events and who can blame our Middy when it’s such a winning formula? We say she looks mighty elegant.
Burton, the designer of Kate’s legendary wedding dress, has created this stunning blush-coloured shift dress covered in lace with full-length sleeves, satin waist detail and ladylike knee-length hemline. The look is expertly polished off with those now-infamous nude LK Bennett heels, a dainty satin box clutch, drop pearl earrings and fabulously floral headgear by Jane Taylor.
And the new royal, who has been so warmly embraced by her regal relatives, pulled off her task off with aplomb, taking it all in her confident stride with her husband Prince William.
For the second time in this weekend’s festivities, the stunning brunette had chosen British fashion house Alexander McQueen, who created her wedding dress.
The long-sleeved shift dress perfectly complemented her tanned skin with its dusky pink hue, lace overlay and tiny ribboned waist making her the picture of elegance.
Perching on top of her sophisticated demi-chignon, similar to the hairstyle she wore for her wedding, was a floral netted Jane Taylor fascinator in the same shade.
This special acknowledgment from Her Majesty emphasises Kate’s future role as her grandson’s Queen Consort and reflects her desire for that the celebrations focus on the direct line of succession.
