The State Banquet


For her first State Banquet as the Princess of Wales, Kate dazzled in white floor length gown by British designer Jenny Packham. The cap sleeves and metallic floral embellishments on each shoulder added extra wow-factor. She completed the look with the infamous Lovers Knot tiara.

Her late Majesty’s funeral


The then Duchess of Cambridge wore one of the most memorable looks of 2022 on the sombre occasion of The Queen’s funeral. A black Alexander Mcqueen coat dress was paired with a matching wide brimmed hat to celebrate the life of her Grandmother-In-Law. The dress paid homage to Queen Elizabeth II, as Kate wore the white version of the dress during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in July this year. She stood next to the Queen on the famous balcony wearing it for the Trooping of the Colour event.

The Top Gun premiere


Kate wore a stunning monochrome bardot gown to the Top Gun: Maverick premiere in May this year. She paired the dress from Roland Mouret with Prada court shoes, her trusty Alexander Mcqueen clutch and £10,000 earrings from Robinson Pelham. Ultra glam.

The first Green bardot dress


The then Duchess of Cambridge wore an incredible off the shoulder tulle dress from Royal favourite designer Jenny Packham. Complementing her green bardot dress (two sartorial elements she has sported multiple times this year) was a pair of incredible emerald dangle earrings that she had loaned from the Queen. Her dazzling bijouterie had everybody talking.

Ascot 2022


This polka dot number epitomised the summer season, whilst encapsulating Kate’s ever-elegant agenda. The high neck dress from Alexandra Rich was ultra elegant, paired with brown pointed heels and a matching-hued hat adorned with white flowers. Sensational.

The custom Vampire’s Wife dress


Kate turned heads in this iridescent cap sleeved dress from The Vampire’s Wife. The one-of-a-kind gown appeared at a reception hosted by the Governor General of Belize. She stayed glam from head to toe with a pair of Jimmy Choo and crystal drop earrings by O'nitaa London.

The second green bardot dress


Kate nailed the eco-concious theme of the Earthshot Prize evening, and rented a glamorous green gown for the event. Hello! Confirmed the dress was from British rental platform Hurr, and designed by Solace London.

The vintage Chanel blazer


The fashion set went crazy as Kate eschewed her typical royal designers and stepped out in a vintage, double breasted blue Chanel blazer. She sported the chic jacket to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Coach Core – a mentorship program founded by Prince William, Princess Kate and Prince Harry as part of their Royal Foundation in 2012.

She completed her opulent look with Cinderella-esque Gianvito Rossi pumps and matching Van Cleef jewellery.

The beautiful blue coat dress


Kate channelled the ultimate modern Princess vibes in this Catherine Walker coat dress with a matching fascinator. She wore the eye-catching blue ensemble to the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March.
