Kate Middleton has been seen out and about, rocking yet another beige coat and hat combo once again today (18 June) at the historic Order of the Garter service at Windsor Castle. Looking pretty in the pastel get-up, the Duchess of Cambridge laughed and gossiped with the Countess of Wessex, as they both waited for their Royal hubbies to come into view.
The men meanwhile were sporting a rather different look - Prince Charles, William and Edward all wore traditional velvet 'cloaks of the Garter Order', teamed with rather fetching hats donning plume of heron and ostrich feathers. Nice!
The Order of the Garter is the country's oldest order of chivalry and the last remaining honour to be given at the discretion of the sovereign. Every knight is required to display a banner of his arms in St George's Chapel at Windsor, together with a helmet, crest and sword and an enamelled stallplate and carries the letters KG after their name for life.
The three senior royal ladies wore incredibly similar outfits – for Kate it was the same Alexander McQueen coat she wore to last year’s Trooping The Colour with a stylish Jane Corbett hat. Camilla sported an Anna Valentine cream chiffon dress and pale pink coat with a Philip Treacy hat. The Countess of Wessex, Prince Edward’s wife, wore a flattering cream coat dress with a shawl neckline and a saucer-shaped hat with an oversized flower.
Oooo, we wish we could pull off such a look!
Meanwhile, Kate Middleton has also opened up about being a princess and her relationship with Prince William during a camping trip with school children as part of her work with ARK charitable foundation.
The 30 year-old donned wellies and jeans as she sat round a campfire and explored woodlands with a group of inner city school children over the weekend. Looking less glamorous than her royal wedding last year, the newest member of the royal family admitted it was “very nice” being a princes and added that her new husband is a real Prince charmer.
