March 14th, 2022—William and Kate attended the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey in London.
They joined a number of other royals, including Princess Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The Duchess looked regal and polished in a sapphire blue outfit including a coat dress by Catherine Walker, navy heels by Rupert Sanderson, a matching clutch bag by Jimmy Choo and a bow-topped hat by Lock & Co. The hat and coat were both trimmed with velvet—so elegant.
Kate added a bit of sparkle to her outfit with a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings and a matching necklace. Many think the set formally belonged to Princess Diana and was adapted for Kate (though some disagree with this.)
Kate last wore the set together in 2020, when she met President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his wife, the First Lady Olena Zelenska. Many believe the repeated wear is a subtle nod of support for Ukraine.
A closer look at Kate’s accessories. Sadly, the black leather gloves remain unidentified.
