What The Duchess of Cambridge wore to the royal wedding.
The Duchess chosen for the same designer she wore to her own royal wedding, Alexander McQueen. The palace announced ahead of time that she was going to be wearing a “primrose-yellow” coat, along with a new headpiece and some nude pumps.
However The Duchess showed up in her cream coat that we have seen her wear three times prior to today’s festivities: Princess Charlotte’s christening in 2015, the Trooping the Colour in 2016 and to the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele in Belgium last year.
Either The Duchess had made a last minute change of clothes, and decid to go for cream rather than yellow, or this coat is actually a newly crafted coat in a slightly more yellow tone, modelled on her cream one. It does appear a little more yellow inside the chapel, and this coat features buttons on the cuffs that her cream one doesn’t seem to have. This coat also seems to be slightly more accommodating of the fact that Kate has recently given birth.
Either way, the A-line coat was a lovely, understated choice for Kate, who gave birth to Prince Louis less than a month ago. It made sure the attention remained very much off of herself.
The Duchess’s new Philip Treacy headpiece was similar to the one dubbed the ‘potato chip hat’ worn to Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall’s wedding in 2011.
Kate completed the look with the £450 Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ nude pumps.
For jewellery, she opted for Kiki McDonough earrings. They to be the double drop earrings Kate wore to Pippa’s wedding last year but lemon quartz rather than the pink morganite (£3,750). Kate also haс on a ring a piece from her pre-Duchess days.
Clare Waight Keller designed the six young Bridesmaids’ dresses in the Givenchy Haute Couture Atelier in Paris. The four Page Boys wore a miniature version of the Blues and Royals frockcoat.
