After joining the Queen at the Chelsea Flower Show yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were back by her side this afternoon for the second garden party of the year at Buckingham Palace.
The garden parties are a staple on the royal calendar with Her Majesty hosting a few each year in late Spring on the grounds of Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
The Duchess stepped out in a new bespoke creation by Alexander McQueen.
The design is a modified version of the label's 'Samurai' Skirt Coat which Kate owns in ivory. The double-breasted front and flap pockets remain, but ruffles of the Samurai coat have been replaced with pleats on this new style.
Kate also donned a new custom pink headpiece by Juliette Botterill.
It is the milliner's Rose & Feather Knot Disc Percher Hat (£570) adorned with a rose and arrow feather with silk abaca bow detail to the back.
Kate accessorized with familiar pieces including her blush Loeffler Randall 'Tab' Lizard-Effect Leather Clutch and praline Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Suede Pumps.
She finished the elegant ensemble with Princess Diana's Collingwood pearl and diamond earrings.
