Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Christopher Kane – Garter Ceremony

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Christopher Kane - Garter Ceremony

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, watched as Queen Elizabeth II led the Knights of the Garter to the Most Noble Order of the Garter Ceremony from the Galilee Porch on Monday (June 16) in Windsor, England.

Opting for yet another repeat, the Duchess wore a Christopher Kane pale blue coat dress with a matching hat from Lock & Co.

Her favourite LK Bennett ‘Natalie’ raffia clutch and a new pair of nude pumps courtesy of Jimmy Choo completed the look.

Catherine first wore this coat dress back in July 2012 while attending a pre-Olympics reception. We were baffled that this look didn’t have a trace of Christopher Kane’s usual aesthetic.

Now, those coat dresses are just blending into one.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Queen Elizabeth II’s Official Birthday

Queen Elizabeth II's Birthday Parade: Trooping The Colour

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, joined Prince William, Prince Harry and their grandfather Prince Philip to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday with an impressive Trooping the Colour parade, which they watched from the balcony of the Royal Horseguards in London, England, on Saturday (June 14).

The Duchess wore a pale blue brocade Alexander McQueen jacket over a matching dress colour-coordinated with her Jane Taylor hat.

How is this McQueen? Well, if you look closely enough you can make out a few of the brand’s signature skulls woven into the fabric.

Catherine accessorized with a pearl brooch and Annoushka earrings.

I can’t say I am impressed with this look; quelle surprise, I find it quite aging for Kate and the colour a tad dull.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Buckingham Palace Garden Party

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen - Buckingham Palace Garden Party

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a garden party held at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday (June 10) in London, England following her visit to the National Maritime Museum earlier in the day.

The Duchess wore a cream Alexander McQueen lace dress with a Jane Corbett hat in the same hue.

This is yet another repeat, as she wore this same dress, with a grosgrain belt, to a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee exactly a two years ago.

Opting for a half-up, half-down hairstyle, she styled her look with a Russell and Bromley ‘Park Avenue’ clutch, Annoushka pearl earrings and, of course, L.K. Bennett nude pumps.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jaeger – National Maritime Museum

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jaeger - National Maritime Museum

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich for the Ben Ainslie America’s Cup Launch earlier today (June 10) in London, England.

Dressed in navy and white, the Duchess wore another British heritage brand: Jaeger.

As always the look was event appropriate, royal appropriate and nothing to shout about, however, I love the summery feel.

The navy and white frock was styled with navy pumps and a matching clutch.

Even though this is not a repeat, it still feels like groundhog day.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – 70th Anniversary of D-Day Ceremony

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen - 70th Anniversary of D-Day Ceremony

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day on Sword Beach on Friday (June 6) in Ouistreham, France.

No surprised that she opted to repeat a look, wearing the same light blue Alexander McQueen coat that she wore during her mind-numbingly boring three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand.

On this occasion she paired the coat with black pumps, instead of navy, adding a black fascinator, which was perfectly perched above her signature bouncy blowout, and a Mulberry black clutch.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jonathan Saunders – Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge Visit Scotland

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jonathan Saunders - Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge Visit Scotland

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, visited MacRostyy Park in Crieff today (May 29), as part of her and the Duke of Cambridge’s day in Scotland.

Perhaps surprising no one, she dressed in a familiar silhouette with her Jonathan Saunders Fall 2013 ‘Athena’ wool jacquard red stripe coat, which was seemingly worn over a matching red dress.

The vibrant ruby colour was lovely, and the mod ombre effect of the stripes a slight twist on the traditional of a solid hue, although I did wish that the runway’s belt had remained in place on Catherine for added structure and flair.

Her favoured nude LK Bennett shoes also made an appearance to complete the look.

Which Was Your Favourite Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Australia and New Zealand Tour Look?

Catherine AustraliaCatherine Australia 2

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge spent three weeks touring Australia and New Zealand with her family, starting with a Catherine Walker coat dress and ending with a Michael Kors coat dress.

If you are like me, you went into this with absolutely no expectations.

If you were hopeful of her making a bold fashion statement or wearing a pair of shoes outside of her usual navy McQueen, black Prada, nude L.K. Bennett or Stuart Weitzman wedges, then perhaps you are very disappointed – or the word many of you used during this tour: bored.

If you are Australian or a New Zealander, you will have been very much miffed that her choice of local designers was very limited.

All in all, it was a safe, presentable, event-appropriate tour.

The look which stood head-and-shoulders above the rest for me was her yellow Roksanda Ilincic, with her Emilia Wickstead a close second.

Which did you favour?
