After the Trooping the Colour, Kate Middleton did a quick change to attend the wedding of old friend Sam Waley-Cohen to Bella Ballin. Who, you ask? Well, ol' Sam has the distinction of being the man who is said to have brought Will and Kate back together after their 2007 split.
Kate, ever considerate of her sartorial choices, seemed to play down her look so as not to overshadow the bride (well, at least she tried), choosing a slim, monochromatic Zara dress that we last saw her wear outside Boujis nightclub in 2007. The Duchess stuck with the black Treacy hat she wore earlier and also wore her Links of London Bubble Earrings, and the same black Prada pumps and Anya Hindmarch Maud clutch that she wore when meeting with the Obamas earlier this month.
We totally love that Kate recycles her fashions (and we're glad she got rid of that belt, too). She's great at making everything old look new again. What we can't get over is how different Kate looks these days.
And, Pippa, you were on shaky ground with us to start with. Your Royal Hotness or whatever they're calling you these days (we prefer Harry's rumored nickname for her--Commando--bwah!), you've failed miserably with this ensemble. Mother-of-the-brideish is putting it mildly. Ugly and ill-fitting is about right.
Think Kate's the only royal who knows the benefits of shopping their closet?
Nuh uh says Beatrice. Ms. York showed up at the wedding in the
same purple blazer and hat she was seen sporting in 2009.
We love the clutch!
The happy couple!
