Duchess Catherine Has Another Major McQueen Moment at Prince George's Christening

Kate Middleton Alexander McQueen, Prince George ChristeningLandov

Last time we saw Duchess Catherine in all-white Alexander McQueen was at her royal nuptials to Prince William. This time, it’s for another royal occasion — the christening of her 3-month-old son Prince George.

While George was dressed in an elaborate replica of the royal christening robe, Middleton took a slightly more modern approach, wearing a custom ivory Alexander McQueen coat dress featuring ruffles down the front. Simple drop earrings and coordinating L.K. Bennett cream pumps completed the look.

And of course, she topped her famously gorgeous hair with a coordinating bespoke Jane Taylor “sinamay beret” featuring netting and a flower appliqué. (See a similar style by the milliner — for more than $1,200! — here.)

Prince William (not pictured) selected a navy suit and blue tie for the affair and was all smiles as he held his son at the 35-minute private ceremony led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at the Chapel Royal in St. James’s Palace in London.

While we love Kate decked in her classic “Sunday best” (so to speak), we also love her casual style. What do you think of her coat dress? How cute is George in his christening robe? Share your thoughts below!

She and the baby look beautiful. I’d much rather here about her than Kim K. Does anyone know why William doesn’t wear a wedding ring? I think( could be wrong) that even his dad wore one. Yes we all know he’s married but we know Kate is too and she wears her rings 24/7. They are modern royalty so he should wear a ring as well.

Thank you for referring to her proper name and title instead of Kate Middleton. She is so Beautiful it’s a shame a lot of the female celebs in America don’t have a lot of class and style without showing everything and then some like Dutchess Catherine shes one of a kind

I read awhile back that Prince George would wear a replica of the orginial gown because the 1841 gown has become too fragile.

Why was the baby in a replica gown?
