Kate Middleton attended the annual Order of the Garter Service at St George’s Chapel alongside a number of royals from all over the world today.
She attended the event alongside Sophie Countess of Wessex, 54, and other foreign royals.
Kate’s monochrome outfit drew admiring gazes from fans.
The earrings she wore are part of the set which includes the famous Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara.
Princess Diana was meant to wear this piece for her wedding, but instead chose her family tiara, the Spencer tiara, as the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara was too heavy.
However, she still wore the earrings from the set, borrowed from the Queen.
The Duchess wore a white and black look, in a coat with a Peter Pan collar.
The dress is the “Liza“ coat dress from Catherine Walker, a favourite brand of Her Royal Highness.
The website says of the piece: “A contemporary take on a ’50’s look, this coatdress in ivory wool crepe has copped jacket ‘panels’ edged in fine black lace.”
The website doesn’t list the price of the coat, but it is likely to be rather expensive.
