Kate Middleton Wore Her Wedding Outfit Twice Before (and It Might Be Due to Her Favorite Color!)
Kate Middleton's royal wedding outfit is a go-to ensemble of hers
Kate, who made her first public appearance since the birth of her baby son, Prince Louis, at the royal wedding, wore an ensemble you may remember from a few other major royal events. It’s an off-white bespoke Alexander McQueen coat dress, which has proven to be a staple of her wardrobe.
The white Alexander McQueen coat dress is a favorite of Kate’s, and it shows in the high-profile events she’s chosen to wear it to in years past. In July 2015, she wore the structured-collared coat dress to Princess Charlotte’s christening.

For Harry and Meghan’s wedding, Kate paired the coat dress with a Philip Treacy hat and a pair of Jimmy Choo heels. She arrived at the ceremony with her two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who were serving as a pageboy and bridesmaid in the wedding.
Kate’s devotion to the look might stem from her love of white, which she revealed on a 2011 royal tour in Los Angeles.
“I don’t know if I have a favorite color. What’s yours?” she said to Prince William at the time.
“Definitely blue,” he replied.
“I think mine is white,” she said.
