Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Dolce & Gabbana – Wimbledon Championships Men’s Final

On Sunday (July 15), Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge returned to Wimbledon for her second appearance – as the patron of the organisation – during this year’s tournament, this time with the Duke of Cambridge to watch Men’s singles finals.

The Duchess made a bold colour choice when she selected this Dolce & Gabbana yellow frock styled with same Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily bag she had carried the day before.

Catherine has worn a lot of cream and beige lately, but this wasn’t the first time she had worn yellow.

Back in 2014, she wore a yellow Roksanda dress during her Australia tour. She has also worn yellow during her Guadalcanal Island tour and for Queen Elizabeth’s garden party back in 2013.

I can only pray this time it ignites her thirst for colour going forward.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Ralph Lauren & Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Jenny Packham – Wimbledon Championships

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex made her first Wimbledon appearance as a member of the royal family on Saturday (July 14) alongside Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex: Once again she looked absolutely stunning in an incredibly chic blue striped shirt and cream high-waisted trousers by Ralph Lauren, but much talk has been made about her breaking Wimbledon’s Royal Box dress code. While there was nothing wrong with the Alturzarra bag and Illesteva Leonard sunglasses, her Maison Michel hat is actually banned from the Royal Box. Protocol asks that ladies do not take hats into the Royal Box to not “obscure the vision of those seated behind them”. You have to wonder who is advising Meghan, and if they are setting her up to fail.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: The avid tennis fan always looks delightful at Wimbledon, and this was no exception. Catherine wore a Jenny Packham printed dress with what appears to be a tennis ball print featuring more details on the hip and shoulder. The look was styled with a Dolce & Gabbana top handle bag.

I know many comparisons will be made, but their styles couldn’t be more different.

Meghan is very much doing modern Meghan, while Catherine is also staying true to her ultra feminine summery style.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – RAF Centenary

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for a service at Westminster Abbey to celebrate the Royal Air Force’s centenary.

Like Meghan, there was a touch of déjà vu about Catherine’s look.

Despite looking a picture of elegance in her pale blue coat Alexander McQueen dress, it bears a resemblance to the cream dress she wore to Princess Charlotte’s christening in 2015, and several other occasions.

Pinned to the lapels of her jacket was the Air Cadets Dacre diamond and ruby brooch.

Since 1982, it had traditionally been awarded to the best all round female cadet each year and is considered the highest accolade they could receive.

This tradition finished in 2015 and it was decided that female cadets should be recognised in the same way as their male counterparts and the Duchess was presented the brooch as a gift following her appointment as Honorary Air Commandant of the RAF.

The Duchess finished her outfit with a pale blue and white hat by milliner Sean Barrett, her nude pumps and a satin embroidered clutch bag.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – HRH Prince Louis Of Cambridge Christening

The world got another glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s youngest child, Prince Louis, today (July 9) at his christening held at St James’s Palace in London.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who carried the two-month-old dressed in a christening gown with a long royal history, was once again wearing a dress from Alexander McQueen.

Styled with a hat by Jane Taylor, if this cream McQueen dress is giving you a case of deja vu, that’s because Catherine wore the same designer and same colour for each of her children’s christenings – both Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

What do you make of today’s offering?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Trooping The Colour

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is officially on maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis just over month ago, but she made another returned to the public eye to participate in the Queen’s birthday parade; Trooping the Colour on Saturday (June 9), where she joined Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

The Duchess wore a pale blue Alexander McQueen box pleat dress with elegant shoulder details styled with flowery matching Juliette Botterill hat and Kiki McDonough blue topaz earrings, which matched Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in a nice family moment.

Why was she sat next to the Duchess of Cornwall and not Prince William in the carriage?

Because he opted to ride horseback during the parade.

This was a chich look which is very much expected from the royal, but I found myself preferring her McQueen look from last years event.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding is the day I discovered a new found respected for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

I have been very vocal in sharing my frustrations at the royal recycler, but if ever there was a day when the focus shouldn’t have been on her, it was today; and she acknowledged that by repeating her Alexander McQueen ivory coatdress.

This will be the third (as far as I’m aware) outing of this look, as she wore it to Princess Charlotte’s Christening and The Passchendaele Commemorations.

I love how the yellow floral detail in her Philip Treacy hat gives this look a new lease of life, with Jimmy Choo heels completed the look.

UPDATE: So, it has been confirmed that this is a new dress, in a slightly different colour. Which is a bit of a head scratcher considering the identical design.
