Starting the Platinum Jubilee Weekend at Buckingham Palace, Kate Middleton rode in a horse-drawn carriage with Duchess Camilla of Cornwall as the pair rocked the crowd at Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday parade during Trooping the Color. A crisp white double-breasted blazer-style dress from Cambridge created a beautiful look with accentuated shoulders and sharp lapels and a knee-length skirt by Alexander McQueen. She previously wore the design to the G7 leaders’ reception in June 2021, a durable choice that is not surprising as this is not the first time she has worn the dress (for example, her blue Catherine Walker coat is a favorite).
Middleton enhanced the regal look of her outfit with an equally elegant hat from the Navy and white Philip Tracy. Her hair, styled in a curved knot, was pulled back to show off her iconic diamonds and sapphire earrings. The jewelry is a tribute to the late Princess Diana, who once owned the right pieces. In fact, the Princess of Wales wore them to multiple occasions, especially at the 1996 Met Gala. Unlike Diana, who usually paired them with a sapphire pearl choker, Middleton gave her a matching pendant necklace for the occasion. Next to her, Camilla chose a pastel blue striped dress from British fashion designer Bruce Oldfield and a matching hat from the same Irish designer as Middleton, Philip Tracy.
The children of Middleton, Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte, were in the car in navy blue suits, white and navy sailor uniforms and blue robes, respectively. Blue was a popular color choice at the event, marking the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne on February 6, 1952. Megan Merkel also received the memo, a sophisticated off-the-shoulder navy dress and Stephen Jones later created an entrance. Wide-brimmed hat.
