Kate Wore A Real Conversation-Starting Headband to Prince Louis’s Christening

Latest news

    Today Prince Louis is being baptised at the Chapel Royal at St James’ Palace, and was carried into the chapel by the Duchess of Cambridge who is wearing her go-to designer for special occasions, Alexander McQueen. She wore an ivory dress with a deep V neckline, puffed shoulders (reminiscent of the silhouette Princess Diana often turned to) and a fluted skirt. This sleeve detail is one that Kate is particularly fond of this year, as at the Trooping of the Colour she wore a pale blue dress with the same pronounced shoulders.

    It’s her headband however that really got our attention, as she wore a wide band in a matching shade with elaborate flower embellishments to the right hand side by the milliner Jane Taylor. Blair Waldorf would be ever so proud. Taylor has created hats for Kate numerous times before, including one for Prince George’s christening.

    As for the man of the day, Prince Louis wore the Honiton robe, a replica of the Royal Christening Robe which was made in 1941 for Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Victoria. Prince George and Princess Charlotte both also wore this to their own Christenings. The Duchess of Sussex (ie Meghan Markle) wore an olive green fitted belted dress by American designer Ralph Lauren, while Pippa Middleton wore a pale blue sleeved midi dress with a pleated skirt by Alessandra Rich. 

    Next up, see more on the curveball colour that Meghan wore to the Royal Christening.
