Looks like it's "wear your wedding dress designer" day for both Duchesses at Princess Eugenie's wedding. Kate Middleton and Prince William had the crowds going wild as they arrived to his cousin's wedding this morning. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and Kate Middleton's fuschia pink Alexander McQueen has our jaws dropping.
Like Meghan Markle, who chose a look by her wedding dress designer Givenchy for the occasion, Kate Middleton is in a bright pink Alexander McQueen set for Princess Eugenie's wedding. The Duchess of Cambridge stole the spotlight in the gorgeous hue, and we're loving her return from maternity leave style. Not to mention the slight PDA we saw from the Cambridges! As they sat at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle waiting for the wedding, William and Kate held hands—a total departure for this royal couple. Maybe Meghan and Harry's PDA started a trend?
Kate Middleton is famously head-over-heels for Alexander McQueen. Her iconic royal wedding dress was designed by McQueen's Sarah Burton, and she's chosen to wear looks from the brand for many of the royal family's most important affairs—including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding. The Duchess has famously recycled some of her Alexander McQueen looks to family and friend's weddings.
This is a departure for Kate, who has been known to recycle her wedding looks to keep eyes off of her and on the bride. At Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding, she wore a pale yellow (not white!) coat dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen that she's previously worn on two occasions: Princess Charlotte's christening and the queen's birthday. While that may sound like a lot, there's another dress—a cream coat by Day Birger et Mikkelsen, according to Harper's Bazaar Australia—that she's worn to three weddings, starting before she became a royal.
