It’s the fourth day of Platinum Jubilee celebrations and the Duchess of Cambridge is showing no sign of royal fashion fatigue. From the Party at the Palace to Trooping the Colour, the Bank Holiday weekend has seen Kate double down on the hallmarks of her style: bespoke dress coats, quietly elegant tailoring, and re-wears of favorite pieces already in her wardrobe. Today’s look was no different.
To watch the Grand Gold State Coach, steered by the sovereign’s escort, lead 10,000 people—including the military, performers, and key workers—up the Mall, Middleton wore a raspberry-coloured long-sleeved Stella McCartney dress with ruching detail. It called to mind the high-vis colour-blocking employed by the Queen (so that her royal subjects can always see her, apparently) and looked undeniably cheerful against the backdrop of London’s grey skies. With her hair curled in her signature bouncy waves, Kate looked fresh-faced and ready to switch on the charm while fulfilling her royal duty to represent Her Majesty.
