The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the intimate christening of their nephew, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared an official family portrait from their son's special day.
In the photo we see Kate wore her salmon pink Stella McCartney pussy bow dress most recently seen at the Queen's 2018 Pre-Christmas luncheon.
As noted then, the details look very similar to the Stella McCartney dress she wore to Prince Philip's 90th birthday dinner in June 2011, however the fabric does not have the same sheen.
What Kate Wore notes that the pleats and hemline also appear to have a crisper finish compared to the satin dress worn in 2011. The consensus is the dress is the same style but rendered in a matte fabric.
Kate's headwear is a piece by Juliette Botterill Millinery which appears to have been modified into a headband. The original straw pillbox hat (£450) has a silk abaca pleated detail edging.
She coordinated the hat with her red suede Gianvito Rossi pumps.
The Duchess finished the outfit with a tribute to Princess Diana. She wore the Collingwood pearl and diamond drop earrings which are believed to have been the same ones Diana wore for Prince Harry's Christening in 1984.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of Wimbledon made her first appearance of the 2019 Championships today.
Kate sported a new white shirt dress for the outing at The All England Club.
It is the 'Flippy Wiggle' dress (£1,850) from British designer Suzannah. Made in London, the design of the dress derives inspiration from a late 1940’s Wiggle Dress, which Suzannah have re-cut to have a skimming fit over the bodice and fluid gentle soft movement throughout the skirt hemline. The silhouette is contoured around the waist with delicate pin-tucks and a matching belt. Pin-tucks are also placed at the front yoke detail. The tea-length dress is fashioned with contrasting silk covered buttons, and half sleeves with buttoned cuff. The dress is made from Italian silk crepe and is lined throughout the bodice and skirt in lightweight silk habotai.
The Duchess replaced the dress belt with a contrasting black Alexander McQueen bow-front leather waist belt.
I initially thought it was the same one she wore with her black tweed Alexander McQueen dress in Paris during the 2017 visit, however British Royal Fashion Data points out that they are different.
She offset the monochrome outfit with a new two-tone bag.
It is the Alexander McQueen 'Wicca' mini satchel featuring a raffia body and black leather trim. ID by @ufonomore.
On her feet Kate wore her black Gianvito Rossi 'Piper' 85 suede pumps.
The Duchess donned a new pair of Ray-Bay Wayfarer II Classic sunglasses in tortoise with brown polarized lens (US$203). ID by @ufonomore.
We saw the return of the mystery citrine ring which is believed to date back to 2008.
Kate finished the look with her Catherine Zoraida Gold Fern Hoop Earrings.
We now know the secret to Kate's luscious lips! She uses Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Lip Gloss (US$26). It is a softly textured lip gel with a deliciously sweet scent and 3D shimmer. It's sheer, but shaded enough to wear alone or to complement your favorite lip shade. You can find a list of Kate's favourite beauty products here.
You gotta love Kate's facial expressions at Wimbledon :)
The bow pinned to Kate's dress in the official colours of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club - dark green and purple, is given to members of the club.
Following the success at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, The Duchess of Cambridge's 'Back to Nature' Garden has moved to RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival for July.
The garden got a few new additions for the installation including a rolling hill, bug hotel, hidden burrow and bee-friendly wildflower meadow.
Kate invited children and their families/carers from her patronages to a picnic in the garden this afternoon.
The Duchess debuted a green printed dress by Sandro Paris, which is a new brand in her closet. Sandro is a Paris-based label loved by French fashionistas whose designs combine the essence of cool and chic Parisian spirit, and the French effortless elegance with a unique twist.
The Sandro printed flowing midi dress (£260) has short-sleeves and a defined waist with pleats and covered buttons. It is made from 100% polyester. The frock is available in limited sizes at Harrods for £182.
The geometric pattern can also be found on the brand's Patchwork Printed Long Dress and Short Printed Silk Dress.
Kate wore her go-to shoe of the season - the brown suede Casteñer 'Carina' 80 espadrille wedges.
She finished the look with her Accessorize Polly Petal Drop Earrings.
Kensington Palace announced that The Duchess of Cambridge has today become the Patron of The Royal Photographic Society (RPS), taking over from the Queen, who had held the role for 67 years.
To mark the occasion, Kate attended a photography workshop for Action for Children, run by The RPS at Warren Park.
The RPS was founded in 1853 with the objective of promoting the art and science of photography. The Duchess has a longstanding interest in photography, and her patronage of The RPS will further highlight the beneficial impact that art and creativity can have on emotional wellbeing, particularly for children and young people.
The Duchess stepped out in a new breezy liberty print dress by Ridley London.
It is the 'Virginia Midi' style (£449) made from silk chiffon and designed with a v-neck, fitted bodice, short floaty sleeves and an a-line skirt with a frounced hem.
She wore her brown suede Casteñer 'Carina' 80 espadrille wedges.
Kate accessorized with her gold Catherine Zoraida Fern Hoop Earrings.
The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and other members of the royal family for the opening day of Royal Ascot.
Ascot Racecourse is steeped in heritage and history and was founded by Queen Anne in 1711. Over the past 300 years, Ascot has established itself as a national institution; with Royal Ascot becoming the centrepiece of the British social calendar and the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world.
The annual meeting spans over five days and each day begins with a Royal Procession - the arrival of The Queen and the Royal party in horse-drawn landaus. Her Majesty was accompanied by The King and Queen of the Netherlands today.
The iconic race meeting is a social event and long been a spectacle of fashion and style.
The Duchess used the occasion to make a designer debut. Today she stepped out in a blue Elie Saab ensemble. This is the first time we have seen Kate wear a garment by the Lebanese fashion designer.
The swiss dot fabric with macramé trim is seen in the designer's ready-to-wear Resort 2019 collection Thanks to @Japanese_Ginger for the info.
Kate had the pussy bow top customized with long sleeves, and the tulle skirt trimmed to a midi length with extra layers of tulle added for full coverage.
The Duchess coordinated the separates with a new blue hat by Philip Treacy. You may recall she already owns this design in a pink colourway.
The molded slice hat features rosettes under the brim and is from the milliner's S/S 2016 collection.
There was also a new clutch and shoes. She carried an Elie Saab Abat-Jour Metallic and Leather Clutch Bag, and on her feet Kate wore Gianvito Rossi 105 metallic leather pumps (US$745).
We saw the return of her KIKI Blue Topaz and Diamond Drop Earrings.
