The Duchess of Cambridge’s Cobalt Blue Look Speaks Volumes

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was a vision in blue as she attended the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey today, March 14. For the occasion the royal wore a Catherine Walker coatdress, which she teamed with a matching pillbox hat and navy heels.

Kate often favors Chelsea-based designer Catherine Walker for formal occasions, with the royal wearing a gray coatdress by the brand for a recent trip to Copenhagen. Today is the second time in the space of a week that the royal has chosen to wear blue: last Wednesday the duchess opted for an Alexander McQueen jumper in the color of the Ukrainian flag for a visit to London’s Ukrainian Cultural Centre.

As a result of a busy royal schedule, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were noticeably absent from last night’s BAFTAs ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall, with Prince William–who is president of BAFTA–appearing via a video message instead.

Later this week the couple will embark on a 12-day tour of the Caribbean that will see them visiting Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas in honor of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Expect to see Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, once again mastering the art of diplomatic dressing then.
