Kate sticks to designer fashion favourite for Prince Louis’ christening

The Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous as she and the Duke celebrated Prince Louis’ christening at The Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace on Monday afternoon.

Kate wore a white v-neck Alexander McQueen dress with a matching floral hat by Jane Taylor, as she carried a sleeping Prince Louis into the ceremony.

The service, which is steeped in all kinds of tradition, saw Kate follow a fashion trend she set at eldest child Prince George’s christening in 2013.


The Duchess has worn designs by Alexander McQueen for all of her children’s ceremonies and it’s a lovely tribute to her and Prince William’s wedding day in 2011.

Kate wore a lace bridal gown , designed by Sarah Burton for McQueen, and after the service, she and William will host a private tea, where guests will be served a slice of their Fiona Cairns wedding cake.

It’s the first time we’ve seen Kate in public since the Trooping the Colour parade on June 9. The Duchess is currently on maternity leave since giving birth to Prince Louis on 23 April.

She was absent from this year’s Royal Ascot and hasn’t attended Wimbledon so far. Her parents Carole and Michael Middleton have both watched the action from the royal box on Centre Court, as have brother James and pregnant sister Pippa.
