Kate Middleton accused of trying to upstage bride Meghan Markle with her royal wedding outfit – here’s the truth
The Duchess of Middleton looked gorgeous in a ‘cream’ tailored coat by fashion favourite Alexander McQueen for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding at St George’s Chapel, in Windsor.
Of course, it’s the same designer who created Kate’s wedding dress for her big day in April 2011.
Kate arrived at the service hand-in-hand with the bridesmaids, including daughter Princess Charlotte, 3, who were dressed in white with rose-adorned headbands.
She teamed her ensemble with a matching Philip Treacy hat and shoes by Jimmy Choo.
Though undeniably stunning, the Duchess’ choice created a stir as wedding protocol dictates that only the bride wears white when tying the knot.
Many viewers took to Twitter to complain about the colour.
“I’m no wedding expert… but should Kate Middleton be wearing white to a wedding if it’s not her wedding?”
“Is Kate Middleton srsly wearing white to the #RoyalWedding (sic)”
” Kate Middleton : the only person in the world who can get away with wearing white at a wedding.”
“Kate Middleton in white … she just can’t take that it’s someone else’s day.”
“Doesn’t Kate Middleton know you shouldn’t wear white/ivory to a wedding????”
However, the truth is the outfit is actually a “primrose yellow wool silk tailored coat”, NOT a white or cream dress.
It’s the fourth time Kate has worn this outfit, including to Charlotte’s christening in July 2015
It’s one of the first times we’ve seen the Duchess of Cambridge in public since she gave birth to her third child Prince Louis on April 23.
Kate wore a red bespoke Jenny Packham dress with a white lace collar to introduce her baby boy to the world, as she and William left the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital.
She was also spotted on her way to Windsor two days before the wedding for the rehearsal, wearing sunglasses and a floral Michael Kors dress .
She showed off her style credentials throughout her third pregnancy , recycling coats and dresses from when she was expecting George and Charlotte.
Kate is a pro at wedding guest style , always looking elegant without upstaging the bride.
For her sister Pippa’s wedding last May, she wore a blush pink midi dress also by Alexander McQueen, which matched the sash of Charlotte’s flower girl dress.
Some etiquette experts maintain that second-time brides should not wear white, veils or trains, but few second-timers are listening. As with any wedding, the time of day and level of formality of the event you’re planning should dictate what you wear – not to mention your own personal style.
When you start looking for a dress, be open-minded. Think about enhancing your beauty rather than pleasing someone else. While you may opt for white or ivory, you may want to steer clear of overly frilly looks and Princess Diana-style trains. You’re not going for the 21-year-old virginal look. “I wore a corset-style gown that definitely showed some cleavage,” says Izzo-Feldman. “It wasn’t something I would ever have picked for my first wedding, so I thought, ‘why not go for it?'”
When I shopped for my dress, the style I had firmly planted in my mind was a simple cocktail dress or sleek evening gown. I was determined to avoid anything “bride-y.” Of course, I was wrong. I ended up buying a bridal gown with a beaded, halter-style bodice. It was everything I had sworn I didn’t want – and it was perfect. That said, I made a few changes, asking the seamstress to chop off the train so I wouldn’t have to bother with a bustle at the reception.
I chose not to wear a veil; instead, I wore my hair in a sleek chignon accented with tiny white flowers. But not every second-time bride skips the veil. “This is the first time I am marrying this particular man,” says Henning, “and I want it done right. To me, that means wearing a gown and a veil.” Other sophisticated options: a tiara, a jeweled headband or beaded barrettes.
Nothing was wrong with what Kate wore. This was the second marriage for Markle. It was okay for Markle to wear any color – even white or off white. But, normally a second marriage can call for other colors or back to white or off white. Anything goes. I have attended a wedding where the bride wore black and it was beautiful – so as the saying goes – “whatever blows your skirt up” in this day and time.
So, lighten up on Kate. I am sure she discussed it with Markle and the powers that be before she took that first step into the church.
And the fact that Kate is a retro person by wearing articles of past and not “going out to buy new” tells me she has the word “frugality” in her play book.
GOOD FOR HER.
