Today, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her official birthday with the Trooping the Colour parade. Her actual 88th birthday was on  April 21, but her annual Trooping the Parade birthday celebration takes place every June, when there’s a better chance of pleasant weather in notoriously – cloudy London.

Kate turned to one of her favorite designers and wore a bespoke, exquisitely detailed, cropped jacket and skirt by British fashion house Alexander McQueen. The ice blue suit had a brocade texture fabric which showed McQueen’s signature skull trademark.

If you’re looking for something similar, McQueen has a snow white, silk – cotton Jacquard peplum jacket. It features a short stand-up collar with thin V neckline, long sleeves with four button cuffs and a peplum with cut-out front and pleated back.
