There’s no rest for the weary … and that includes royals! Following their glamorous night out Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the royal family for several celebrations over the weekend, which carried into Monday afternoon. And throughout all of the various events, Catherine was her usual stylish self. The newlywed first stunned Saturday at Trooping the Colour, Queen Elizabeth II’s 85th birthday celebration, wearing a white cotton and wool-blend Alexander McQueen piqué coat and black hat by Sylvia Fletcher of James Lock and Co. Later that day, she joined newly single sister Pippa at a friend’s wedding in Berkshire, England, sporting the same topper and a black-and-white Zara dress she’d worn out in 2007. Sunday, Catherine helped fête Prince Philip on his 90th birthday, wearing a bright blue coat she’d chosen for a friend’s 2009 wedding, accessorized with her nude L.K. Bennett pumps and a Philip Treacy hat. And Monday, she greeted the public during William’s festive Order of the Garter ceremony in a long dove-gray dress and coat by Katherine Hooker, matching hat custom created by Rachel Trevor Morgan (who also makes toppers for the Queen) and suede gray “Malone” pumps by Rupert Sanderson. It seems the royal weekend was just a brief, stylish preview of what’s to come on Catherine and William’s North American tour in July.

ACTUALLY Prince William SPECIFICALLY said he would like her to be referred to as PRINCESS CATHERINE. Google it, he specifically requested it from the media and public.

she’s a beautiful young woman with great style like the late Lady Diana.

Do these people ever do anything worthwhile? Apart from buying clothes that is.

@ Margaret
You want people to stop referring to her as Kate? That is the name she likes, and she isn’t Princess Catherine now, she is Duchess Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge

Honestly, I’m not putting her down because she is small, but when you are the size of a twig, you can wear just about anything and look good in it. She has the fashion world at her fingertips. :)

Absolutely a perfect princess!

She is missing that “royal something”, like a horse face???? Are you kidding? Hopefully, she will do what Diana did and improve that gene pool. Unlike Sarah Ferguson who truly ruined it for her “royal looking” daughters.

i adore that blue coat. gorgeous! and i too am glad to hear that she is recycling some outfits. makes good sense, economically and environmentally, even if you are a duchess!

I love her! She is gorgeous and classy. There are very few women that claim to be both. Prince William made a wonderful choice when choosing his bride. If I had to choose which outfit is my favorite, I would have to choose the blue coat. Blue is my favorite color, and it looks wonderful on her. I hope that Princess Katherine and Prince William have a long and happy life together. Who knows, maybe they will be adding a baby to the mix soon.
