The christening of your child is a huge event. Now imagine compounding that with the fact that the child in question is the princess of the United Kingdom. That’s no small feat for a mother just nine weeks postpartum. To mark the occasion, Kate wore a cream Alexander McQueen dress that was simple and elegant.
It was the perfect timeless number, so much so that she has continued to wear it for years after. For the christening, Kate chose an ornate hat to match the dress, and cream heels. She walked Charlotte into the proceedings and managed to look more elegant than any of us could in our lives.
Alexander McQueen Dress - April 2022
To commemorate ANZAC Day in 2022, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a Service Of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey. Catherine chose her cream Alexander McQueen dress and paired it with a large cream headband. She accessorized with a black purse and opted for black heels to complement it.
Historically, the then-Duchess had only worn this dress to family events, including the christening of her daughter. Now, she decided that it was an appropriate choice for a somber and serious event, not only for happy occasions. As she entered the church, though, she was all smiles and brought her light to the difficult event.
Alexander McQueen Dress - May 2018
Arguably one of the biggest global events of 2018 was the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Many eyes were on the royal family after waves of controversy had emerged regarding their acceptance of Meghan into the family. The then-Duchess of Cambridge opted for her trusty cream Alexander McQueen dress for the wedding.
Previously, Kate had worn it for her daughter's christening, so clearly, this dress was reserved for high-status use only. This time, Kate paired it with a slanted hat that had a large flower on it, complementing her small bouquet. She was escorted by Princess Charlotte who looked adorable in her flower-girl ensemble.
Alexander McQueen Suit - August 2022
For the third and final installment of the white Alexander McQueen suit, Kate wore it while attending the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Kate was joined by her daughter, Charlotte, as she watched the Swimming event at Sandwell Aquatics Centre.
This version of the all-white outfit is similar to the previous ensemble, but Kate accessorized with a necklace and a belt to make this look a little more relaxed. The then-Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have long attended the games as part of their royal duties, and Kate saw it as the perfect place for her favorite outfit of the year.
Alexander McQueen Suit - June 2022
Kate's favored white Alexander McQueen suit made its second appearance just two months after she first wore it in Jamaica. In June of that year, Kate and Prince William attended the unveiling of the National Windrush Monument at Waterloo Station in London. They were accompanied by Baroness Floella Benjamin, who looked wonderful herself.
This time, Kate went for an all-white ensemble with a white camisole top underneath, as well as a white purse and white heels. The only things that stood out were her statement earrings. This outfit is one of many that prove that Kate does not need bright, eye-catching outfits to stand out.
