The Duchess of Cambridge has opted, yet again, to wear British label Alexander McQueen who designed the cream coat dress she wore for Princess Charlotte’s christening on Sunday.

This weekend royal fans saw the Duke and Duchess walking down Sandringham as they headed to St Mary Magdalene Church looking sharp for the baptism of the newest royal baby. Prince William was holding hands with Prince George -who was sporting an almost identical white-and-red outfit worn by his father when he was taken as a baby boy to meet his brother Harry for the first time - while Catherine pushed an iconic, antique Silver Cross pram carrying the little Princess.

As the crowds enjoyed the very special royal moment, many had their fashion-eye trained on the Duchess, who opted to wear an elegant knee-length, long-sleeved creation by the British label’s creative director Sarah Burton, who also designed Middleton’s wedding dress in 2011 and the design she wore for Prince George’s christening in October 2013.

The simple dress has a geometric inverted neckline and oversized lapels, dramatically contrasting with the 2013’s ruffled and flared cream dress.

She sported her hair up and accessorised it with a sophisticated Jane Taylor feathered hat in a white floral design. The Duchess also wore matching court shoes and opted, once again, for Mappin & Webb jewellery, choosing a pair of teardrop earrings and delicate necklace.

We’re not surprised about the designer choice, Catherine, who is a global fashion icon, seems to favour Alexander McQueen designs, as she continues to select custom made designs for her finest occasions, from her wedding in 2011 to her children’s christenings. princess-charlotte-christening-3.jpg

Her sister Pippa Middleton, who gained big following after her appearance at the royal wedding in a Alexander McQueen white gown, also stunned in a bespoke cream coat dress by celebrities’ favourite rising designer, Emilia Wickstead, which she teamed up with Charlotte Olympia nude court heels and white hat, too.
