Kate Middleton wore the sassy white suit you've always dreamed of

The mum-of-three kicked off summer in June by carrying her white Mulberry 'Amberley' crossbody bag paired with a crisp matching double-breasted Alexander McQueen trouser suit to mark Windrush Day in central London. Then in July she showed the bag's versatility when she wore it once again to Wimbeldon, this time with a blue polka dot dress.
