Radiant outfits for the Duchesses: Kate and Camilla sat together in the “Trooping the Color” parade in the carriage.

At the start of the celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II’s platinum throne jubilee (96), Duchess Kate (40) shone in white. Prince William’s wife (39) wore a recycled Alexander McQueen blazer dress worth around 3,500 euros at the “Trooping the Color” parade. Kate beamed in the outfit while greeting people from a carriage with Duchess Camilla (74) and her three children Prince George (8), Princess Charlotte (7) and Prince Louis (4).

Memory of Princess Diana

According to media reports, Kate presented the white dress at a performance last summer. The Duchess is a big fan of the fashion house Alexander McQueen. She also wore a dress from the label at her wedding to Prince William in 2011. In “Trooping the Color” she combined a hat by Philip Treacy in blue and white with her designer outfit. She also wore sapphire-diamond earrings and a matching necklace from William’s late mother, Princess Diana (1961-1997), according to the Daily Mail. Kate has gathered her hair into a voluminous bun.

Duchess Camilla appeared on the carriage ride in a striped, light blue dress, also with long sleeves. She also combined a mint blue hat with a bow. A sprawling necklace rounded off Prince Charles’ (73) wife’s outfit.
