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 rewears of favourite pieces already in her wardrobe. Today’s look is no different.
To watch the gold state carriage, steered by the sovereign’s escort, lead 10,000 people – including the military, performers and key workers – up the Mall, Kate 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, 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.
