Sure sure, today is all about King Charles, but it's also about the fashion. And while there've been gorgeous crowns and dazzling jewels aplenty, we were most excited to see what Kate Middleton, 41, would wear—and she did not disappoint.

For today's major event, the Princess of Wales sported a white Alexander McQueen dress, as noted by People, with robes in elaborate shades of red, blue and white (as a nod to the British flag) layered on top. Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh, 58, was seen wearing the same robes, but better yet, Princess Catherine's daughter, Princess Charlotte, 8, matched with her mom by wearing a white Alexander McQueen dress, as well as a matching Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen headpiece.

Royally Obsessed podcast host and royal expert Roberta Fiorito noted that, “The floral headpieces go with the theme of the coronation emblem and invitation.” Meanwhile, her co-host and royal expert, Rachel Bowie, added, “Kate has dressed beautifully in the flag colors: red, white & blue.”

Vanity Fair revealed that the headpieces worn by Princess Catherine and her daughter were made with silver bullion, crystal and silver thread work. Meanwhile, they said of Princess Charlotte's 'fit: “[She] is wearing a dress and cape in ivory silk crepe with ivory satin stitch embroidery featuring rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock motifs (to signify the four nations).”

Princess Catherine has been on a roll lately, and she's been donning lots of rewears and reworked versions of her dresses.

For instance, when she attended the BAFTAs with Prince William in February, the royal wore a white Alexander McQueen gown, which she had previously sported to the ceremony in 2019 (however, she had it refashioned with a new shoulder accessory).

Meanwhile, for the 2023 Easter church service, Princess Catherine sported a cobalt Catherine Walker & Co. coatdress, which she wore to the Commonwealth Day service in 2022.

You're killing the fashion game, Catherine (and you too, Charlotte).
