Each year, Kate, 33, joins husband Prince William for Christmas morning services with the rest of the royal family at St. Mary Magdalene church on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England.

Hundreds of well-wishers typically gather to see the royals — and to get a glimpse of Kate’s festive look.

The royal mom of two’s first Christmas Day appearance with the royal family came in 2011, when she dazzled in a festive berry ensemble. Kate opted for a knee-length coat dress by an unidentified independent British dressmaker, according to a palace spokesman. She paired the look with black suede pumps, and her long hair was perfectly curled underneath a matching velvet hat by milliner Jane Corbett, who regularly creates items for the royal.

In 2012, Kate broke royal tradition when she and William attended Christmas service at St. Mark’s Church in Berkshire with the rest of the Middleton family. The couple, who had recently announced they were expecting their first baby, spent the holiday with Mike, Carol, Pippa and James Middleton at their family home in Bucklebury. Kate looked relaxed in a chestnut brown belted wool Hobbs “Celeste” coat. She accented the look with a festive red scarf.

In 2013, Kate and Will returned to St. Mary Magdalene (sans Prince George!) to ring in the holiday with the rest of the royal family. The royal stunned in a tartan Alexander McQueen dress coat. But all eyes were on her chic green hat, a hard shell beret with a large bow by Gina Foster.
