Kate Middleton Just Wore a White Coat Dress by One of Her Favorite Designers—But Her Massive Headband Stole the Show

Kate Middleton just made a surprise appearance alongside her husband, Prince William.

Today, the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, attended a Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey in honor of Anzac Day. Middleton wore an elegant all-white ensemble with black heels, but it was her matching headband that caught our attention.

Middleton is wearing a stunning white coat dress by one of her favorite designers, Alexander McQueen. If the outfit looks familiar, it’s probably because Middleton previously wore it to Princess Charlotte’s christening back in 2015.

The dress features a button-down front, long sleeves and a collar neckline with a flower pinned to the lapel. She’s sporting simple accessories, including black pumps and pearl-drop earrings that (according to The Daily Mail) were previously owned by her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

Middleton’s coordinating headband stole the show for its elegant simplicity, featuring a textured fabric that can only be seen upon closer inspection. The accessory was reportedly designed by milliner Jane Taylor.

It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that Middleton chose to wear Alexander McQueen. The British fashion house designed her wedding dress, and the ceremony took place at Westminster Abbey (the same venue as the service).

Today’s traditional ceremony was held in honor of Anzac Day, which is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand. Although we didn’t know she would attend, you won’t hear us complaining.
