The Duchess of Cambridge wore her trusty white Alexander McQueen suit to the Sandwell Aquatics Center on Tuesday 2 August to watch a swimming event
Kate Middleton arrived at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham wearing a very familiar looking outfit. The Duchess of Cambridge wore her trusty white Alexander McQueen suit at the Sandwell Aquatics Center on Tuesday, August 2, to watch the swimming heats alongside Prince William and their seven-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte. The mother-of-three had unveiled the £1,945 outfit in March during William and Kate’s expensive royal trip to the Caribbean, pairing it with a bright orange top for a formal engagement to the Prime Minister of Jamaica.
In June, the Duchess donned the ivory suit again to attend a Windrush Day event created in 2018 to honor the millions of people who immigrated to Britain from Caribbean countries between 1948 and 1971. Kate has a close relationship with Alexander McQueen, having worn the brand to important occasions including her wedding in 2011. According to the Daily Mail, the white suit has become a new must-have for royals, according to stylists who are embracing the trend May declared after Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and former Princess Tessy of Luxembourg all sported the look this season.
Kate’s beloved two-piece has since been compared to a similar one worn by Princess Diana, as well as Meghan Markle’s white power suit at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands.
During her performance in Birmingham, the Duchess continued to stick to a monochromatic theme, pairing her opulent suit with a white shirt and belt. She added some flair to the classic outfit with a set of £3,750 Mappin and Webb earrings and handy Camilla Elphick slingback shoes.
The 40-year-old also styled her auburn locks in the iconic Kate Middleton glossy hairstyle, parting them down the middle and letting her waves cascade freely down her shoulders.
In keeping with the classic theme of the occasion, Prince William wore a navy blue suit jacket, light blue button-down shirt, tan trousers and brown shoes. Princess Charlotte looked stunning during the outing in a Rachel Riley dress with black and white striped sleeves and white heels.
The young princess took her first solo outing with her parents without either of her brothers Prince George, 8, and Prince Louis, 4, and was met with a flurry of excitement online.
During the event, Princess Charlotte’s cheeky faces attracted particular interest as fans flocked to social media to rave about the child’s hilarious expressions. The royals later went to a SportsAid house, where they supported young athletes by serving as SportsAid patrons for almost a decade.
Charlotte made her last appearance during Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, when she and her siblings were constantly together.
