Whenever Kate Middleton, 41, steps out in a classic royal rewear for an engagement, she undoubtedly hits the mark every time, whether she’s rocking a royal blue coat dress for the second time around or she’s turning heads in a stunning emerald dress. The bottom line is: the Princess of Wales knows how to serve a look. 

And Princess Catherine did just that when she showed up to an event in a re-wear and matching colors with her hubby, Prince William, 40. A couple of days after coronation weekend, the married couple attended a garden party held at Buckingham Palace. And it was quite the royal affair, indeed.

According to Hello! Magazine, Catherine simply radiated in a sheer sky-blue dress designed by Elie Saab with a Philip Treacy hat to match. She accessorized the look with an Elie Saab clutch purse and topaz hoop earring crafted by Kiki McDonough. Meanwhile, Prince William had his own sky-blue moment with his buttoned-up shirt and matching necktie.

Royal admirers may recall the royal princess wore the same ensemble to the Royal Ascot back in 2019. In the photo (see below) the princess can be seen standing next to her hubby and wearing the same dress with the floral-brimmed hat.

Fast forward to the present, Princess Catherine and Prince William had a chance to meet and chat with a number of guests at the garden party.

Per the outlet, the special occasion has been a tradition within the royal family since the 1860s, when Queen Victoria began hosting the events and referred to them as “breakfasts.”

The royal couple were also joined by the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, who also spent time with the Prince and Princess of Wales during the coronation ceremony a few days prior.
