Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at Commonwealth Day 2020

Kate Middleton's English Rose Fascinator Is a Very Significant Fashion Choice

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton attended Commonwealth Day 2020 at London's Westminster Abbey alongside Prince William, Prince Harry, Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, and fellow royals. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a head-to-toe tonal red look in warming shades of scarlet, rich ruby, deep burgundy, and subtle purple details.

Catherine's tonal outfit gave an interesting take on contrasting textures by pairing the velvet details of her Catherine Walker coat to her burgundy suede pointed-toe heels. She paired her coat and suede shoes with a ruby-colored hat that featured three scarlet roses and burgundy-colored velvet leaves. Catherine finished her head-to-toe red look with burgundy velvet gloves and ruby drop earrings.

The rose is an extremely significant fashion choice. It's the national flower of England and is formally referred to as the Tudor Rose, which signifies peace and a long reign. Catherine's choice of wearing red roses on her fascinator suggests good fortune for her and her family as the future faces of the United Kingdom.
