It’s the Queen’s 88th birthday, and all the royals were recently out in their most regal clothes and classy hats for the Trooping the Colour Procession. And no other outfit was as anticipated as Kate Middleton’s, of course. Don’t get your hopes up, though; this was no dress repeat. Unlike the golden dress for Prince Phillip II’s birthday, this outfit was all new.

For the special occasion, the Duchess of Cambridge smartly chose a skirt suit by Alexander McQueen. Silvery white from afar, the blazer and suit set was actually blue jacquard silk with a gorgeous texture that set it apart from the pastel dresses worn by the older royals like Camilla Parker Bowles’ pink skirt suit and the Queen’s powder blue dress. As expected from Catherine, her outfit was simple but chic and interesting.

Catherine’s Jane Taylor hat also fit her suit’s modern theme — a heart-shaped straw beret topped with wintry florals and sprigs. A pair of large pearl earrings and an unimposing pearl brooch by Annoushka finished off her look.
