The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant in an all-blue ensemble for a special royal occasion yesterday (13 June).

The Duchess opted for a chic blue dress featuring statement lapels and structured pleating. Kate paired the dress with a co-ordinating headpiece topped with large flowers, which were interspersed with feathers and netting.

The royals were attending a procession known as Garter Day in Windsor Castle. The Order of the Garter is the most senior order of knighthood which can be bestowed and yesterday the honour was awarded to a number of individuals, including the Duchess of Cornwall.

The event means the Duchess has now become “a Royal Lady of the Order of the Garter,” according to a post on the official Royal Family Instagram account.

Traditional attire was worn by Prince William, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall while others, including the Duchess of Cambridge, were in formal dress.

The Royal Family’s post explained that, “Garter Day usually takes place each June,” but had been postponed due to the pandemic, making this the first event for three years. It added that it is “attended by the Knights of the Order of the Garter, the oldest British Order of Chivalry.”
