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!

I think she wore this dress when she came to Canada, but with a different hat. Always looks classy!

She’s gorgeous…what’s up with the hats though? Not being mean, just wondering. Is it an Royal thing?

To Just Sayin, here in the UK it is common and traditional for a woman to wear a hat (or a fascinator is becoming a popular alternative these days) to a formal occasion such as a wedding or a christening. I think the Duchess and her son look truly lovely here.

Both look just perfect. What a cute baby ♥️

I wish I could go back into the past and show Alexander McQueen how his fashion line’s future was going to turn out. Maybe he wouldn’t have committed suicide.
