The Duchess of Cambridge attended today's historic Garter Day service with other members of the Royal Family.
The Order of the Garter is the most senior and the oldest British Order of Chivalry and was founded by Edward III in 1348. Each year in June, a procession and service take place at Windsor Castle for the Order of the Garter. Prince William has been a Royal Knights Companion of the Garter since 2008.
Kate wore her bespoke red Catherine Walker coat with matching dress, previously worn during the North American tour. in July of 2011.
Here's a look at the back of the fit-and-flare coat.
The ensemble was matched perfectly with her red Lock & Co hat, first seen when worn to the Diamond Jubilee River Pageant in 2012.
Kate carried her red Alexander McQueen bow clutch, it was also first noted at the River Pageant. The clutch has been modified with the signature skull clasp removed.
Kate surprised us today with her choice of jewelry! She wore her diamond acorn drop earrings for the first time since her wedding in 2011. They were a gift from Kate's parents who commissioned
Robinson Pelham Jewellers Ltd to produce the diamond oak leaf and acorn earrings.
The Duchess also wore her favorite Mappin & Webb 'Empress' necklace, and art deco diamond bracelet, said to be a gift from Prince Charles.
The only new addition to her outfit was a pair of Gianvito Rossi red suede pumps (£450).
Kate attended her first Garter service in 2008, when she was dating Prince William. We didn't see her again at the annual procession until after William and Kate were married in 2011. Since then, there have been some gaps in Kate's attendance in the years coinciding with the birth of her children.
In other news just announced, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be in Northern Ireland on Tuesday, where they will attend the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland‘s Garden Party. See you all again tomorrow!
