After joining the Queen for the first time at the Chelsea Flower Show yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were back by her side this afternoon for Her Majesty's last garden party of the season.
The garden parties are a staple on the royal calendar with Her Majesty hosting a few each year on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. This was the first garden party William and Kate had attended together.
Kate has attended solo on past occasions, making this her fourth appearance. For her first attendance in 2012, Kate opted for a repeat and wore her pink Emilia Wickstead 'Alice' pleated dress. In 2013, she was pregnant with Prince George and debuted a yellow Emilia Wickstead coat. In 2014, she brought back the Alexander McQueen champagne lace dress.
Today, she decided to repeat the cream Alexander McQueen ruffle dress she wore for Prince George's christening.
The bespoke piece features a statement ruffle jacket and a matching A-line skirt. It was based on a leaf crepe coat dress previously seen among the Spring/Summer 2012 McQueen collection.
Kate accessorized her two-piece ensemble with the same Jane Taylor 'Georgie' hat.
Other familiar accessories included her Annoushka Pearl and Kiki Diamond Hoop Earrings and LK Bennett 'Nina' clutch.
On her feet were a new pair of taupe suede pumps.
They are yet to be identified, but What Kate Wore has suggested the 'Gianvito 105' style by Gianvito Rossi. There a few options available in a similar hue.
You may recall that Kate already owns the 'Gianvito 105' pumps in Royale Burgundy suede and black suede. I'll keep you posted if we ever get a definitive ID.
ID UPDATE (15/06/2016):
I've been in contact with Gianvito Rossi and they have confirmed that Kate wears their Gianvito 105 suede pumps in 'Praline'. This is the official name of the colour. Stockists such as Net-a-Porter have renamed the shade in their description, hence the confusion. All the shoes above are actually the same hue!
