Catherine, Princess of Wales, attended the Garter Day service at Windsor Castle today, alongside senior members of the Royal Family.
This year's event is the first under the reign of King Charles III, who will be taking part as the Sovereign of The Order of the Garter.
The Order of the Garter is the most senior and oldest British Order of Chivalry, founded by Edward III in 1348. Each year in June, a procession and service take place at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle for the Order of the Garter. Prince William has been a Royal Knights Companion of the Garter since 2008.
The Princess debuted an Alessandra Rich dress for today's historic Order of the Garter service.
Rendered in a custom white and black polka-dot print, the £1,255 off-the-rack design was available in pink and blue (shown below). The fitted silk-satin midi dress features gathering details at the high-neck, shoulders, waist, and cuffs.
There are subtle differences between Kate's dress and the ready-to-wear version. Kate's dress replaces the gathered shoulder detail with a puff sleeve, and she opts for a standard buttoned cuff instead of a ruched cuff.
To complement the dress, Kate wore a new hat — a bespoke design by Philip Treacy. The chapeau features a black saucer base adorned with white and black polka-dot print feathers on top and underneath the brim.
The Princess also added new accessories. She carried a Strathberry 'Multrees' Chain Wallet in the Vanilla/Diamond colorway ($425). ID by Kate Middleton Style.
On her feet were a new pair of Jennifer Chamandi 'Vittorio' 105 slingback pumps in Ivory Leather & Black Patent toe cap ($715). ID by Emily Collins.
For today's outfit, the only familiar items Kate wore were jewelry pieces that had once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. She adorned herself with the Collingwood Pearl Drop Earrings, and the Nigel Milne triple-strand pearl bracelet.
And finally, a closer look at Kate's chignon.
The British Royal Family gathered on Saturday to attend the traditional Trooping the Colour parade, marking the first occasion under the reign of King Charles III.
The annual parade is the official celebration of the British monarch's birthday and is a military ceremony that involves a parade of soldiers from the Household Division, who march past the Sovereign in Horse Guards Parade.
For the horse carriage procession down The Mall, The Princess of Wales was joined by her three children, and Queen Camilla.
Meanwhile, Prince William was on horseback alongside his uncle, The Duke of Edinburgh, and his aunt, Princess Anne, in their roles as Colonels, and led by King Charles as Colonel in Chief.

Following the parade, the Wales family were reunited on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for the traditional RAF fly-past.
Kate chose a striking monochromatic ensemble, clad entirely in green, to reflect her position as the Colonel of the Irish Guards.
Additionally, as a homage to her role, Kate wore the gold three-leaf clover brooch, on loan from the Irish Guards.
The Princess appeared elegant in a custom emerald green embellished dress by Andrew Gn, inspired by a coat from the designer's Spring Summer '23 collection. This marks the first occasion where we have seen Kate wearing a piece from the Singaporean fashion designer, perhaps in preparation for the Earthshot Prize Awards in Singapore this year.
She also debuted a bespoke wide-brim straw hat by Philip Treacy, which perfectly matched the hue of her dress. The chapeau features a tonal satin band with a bow at the back, as well as a button identical to those on the Andrew Gn dress. I suspect the hat was a collaboration between the milliner and the designer.
Kate carried her green L.K.Bennett 'Dora' Suede Envelope Clutch.
On her feet were a new pair of Aquazzura 'Purist' 105 Pumps in Green Suede (£500).
The Princess completed the ensemble by accessorizing with Princess Diana's Cabochon Sapphire Drop Earrings.
Catherine, Princess of Wales visited the Riversley Park Children's health centre in Nuneaton, Warwickshire today to meet with health visitors taking part in a new study funded by the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood.

HANDBAG: Mulberry Small Amberley Crossbody Bag in White (repeat).

The study is a £50,000 trial of the Alarm Distress Baby Scale (ADBB), a tool that can be used to assess how babies are interacting with the world around them and to identify early signs of psychological distress. The study will run for ten months and will involve health visitors who are currently receiving training to use the ADBB. The study aims to assess the effectiveness of the ADBB in supporting parent-infant relationships and early childhood development.
The Princess saw first-hand how the ADBB model is being used by health visitors to support parent-infant relationships and early childhood development during her visit to Denmark in February 2022. Following the trip, the Princess and the Centre for Early Childhood have been working closely with the Institute of Health Visiting to explore the potential for implementation of the ADBB in the UK.

The Princess of Wales, Patron of the Rugby Football Union, visited Maidenhead Rugby Club on Wednesday to meet local and national male players and discuss her 'Shaping Us' campaign.

Later, Kate headed to the clubhouse for a discussion centered on early childhood experiences, fatherhood, and the influential role that settings like local sports clubs can play in establishing a supportive network for those involved in raising children.
