Yesterday, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She arrived just ahead of the bride, with the adorable bridesmaids and pageboys, helping to usher and coax them into position.
During the ceremony, she took her seat alongside Prince Charles and Camilla, watching as Prince William took his place next to the groom.

Kate shopped her closet and wore her ivory Alexander McQueen coat dress which was first seen at the christening of Princess Charlotte back in July 2015. The bespoke knee-length, designer piece featured structured shoulders, wide lapels, a fitted waist, and a flared skirt.
Adding to her ensemble, the Duchess wore a new, oversized Philip Treacy hat (only ID’d as OC 458 by the designer) and a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Romy 100’ patent leather pumps ($650).
The Duchess of Cambridge added new pieces of jewelry to her wardrobe! She wore a new pair of Lemon Quartz Pear and Oval Drop Earrings from the Kiki McDonough Classics Collection (£3,750) and showed off a new ring on her right hand (could possibly be citrine or lemon quartz to match her earrings – pictures are not clear enough. I have messaged Kiki McDonough to see if it is one of their pieces). This may have been a gift from Prince William after the birth of their third child, Prince Louis.

In closing, I leave you with these adorable snaps of Princess Charlotte.

I have confirmed with Kiki McDonough that Kate was not wearing one of their baubles on her finger at the wedding.
What Kate Wore on FB has shared a collage of older pictures of the Duchess wearing the citrine ring on prior occasions. If the designer is ID’d, I will be sure to update, for now it is UFO.
There is now also discussion that Kate’s dress is, in fact, new. Thanks to MF Stylist Perth (@PerthsFashion on Twitter) we have some evidence to prove this.
Also, in the official photos released from The Royal Family on FB, Kate’s dress seems to have a yellowish tinge in comparison to Charlotte’s white dress.

We have also been alerted to the fact that Meghan gave six of her best friends and the Duchess of Cambridge a touching gift to remember her big day after they supported her through the nuptials.
The new Duchess of Sussex, commissioned California-based jeweler Lisette Polny, founder of Zofia Day, to make the bespoke Solid Gold Disc Bracelet as a memento for her loved ones.

Meghan herself approved the design for the delicate yellow gold trinket, appropriately titled The Kensington Bracelet, which is now available to buy for $450. The bracelet is also available in white and rose gold.
