Duchess Catherine Has Another Major McQueen Moment at Prince George's Christening

Kate Middleton Alexander McQueen, Prince George ChristeningLandov

Last time we saw Duchess Catherine in all-white Alexander McQueen was at her royal nuptials to Prince William. This time, it’s for another royal occasion — the christening of her 3-month-old son Prince George.

While George was dressed in an elaborate replica of the royal christening robe, Middleton took a slightly more modern approach, wearing a custom ivory Alexander McQueen coat dress featuring ruffles down the front. Simple drop earrings and coordinating L.K. Bennett cream pumps completed the look.

And of course, she topped her famously gorgeous hair with a coordinating bespoke Jane Taylor “sinamay beret” featuring netting and a flower appliqué. (See a similar style by the milliner — for more than $1,200! — here.)

Prince William (not pictured) selected a navy suit and blue tie for the affair and was all smiles as he held his son at the 35-minute private ceremony led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at the Chapel Royal in St. James’s Palace in London.

While we love Kate decked in her classic “Sunday best” (so to speak), we also love her casual style. What do you think of her coat dress? How cute is George in his christening robe? Share your thoughts below!

Gorgeous baby and lovely mother. BTW – that christening outfit is so beautiful…

The Duchess looks absolutely gorgeous, and the Duke looks very handsome, but their outfits do not look great side by side with his stark white compared to her cream.

Kate looks beautiful as always and Prince George is adorable, he really resembles his dad! The christening gown is stunning!

He really looks like his dad – I can’t wait until he gets older to see whom he will favor – he is going to be as handsome as his dad!

Love it! Catherine & George look amazing. Love watching Wills go through the life steps. And now excited to watch George do the same
