Kate Middleton's Alexander McQueen dress for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding was not recycled
The Duchess of Cambridge showed up to the royal wedding in a very similar primrose yellow wool silk tailored Alexander McQueen coat which she had worn to three previous engagements
Kate Middleton came under heavy public scrutiny after some royal fans were convinced that she had not bothered to buy a new dress for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding day. Many felt that she had chosen to recycle an old dress which she had been seen wearing numerous times earlier.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, showed up to the royal wedding in a very similar primrose yellow wool silk tailored Alexander McQueen coat which she had worn to three previous public engagements. Kate had been seen in the outfit at Princess Charlotte's christening in the year 2015, the Trooping the Colour in 2016 and at an event marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele in 2017.
As reported by The Sun, Kate did not repeat outfits at all and she had definitely bought a new dress which was incredibly similar to her previous one. A fan, royaladdicted2 took to Instagram to point out and help identify the difference in both the dresses. Her royal wedding dress had buttons on the cuffs, whereas the virtually identical one did not.
The Instagram user known as Jessica also believes that the dress that Kate wore to the Royal wedding was primrose in color while the strikingly similar dress that she wore to the other events was more of a cream color. In the past, on several occasions, Kate has worn the exact same coat or dress a second time but in a different color or a different version.
The Duchess was seen looking gorgeous as she chaperoned the bridesmaids which included her daughter, Princess Charlotte, as they arrived at the St. George's Chapel in Windsor. Kate finished off her look with a pair of Jimmy Choos and a hat which was designed by Philip Treacy. However, despite her choice of the dress and looking absolutely stunning, she did manage to raise some eyebrows. Kate is known for her knack of repeating her clothes and also buying similar designs to what she has worn before. She keeps her looks fresh by switching her hairstyle often or adding an accessory or two to her look.
The Duchess of Cambridge recently gave birth to her and Prince William's third child, Prince Louis who was left at home for the royal wedding. Prince Louis' siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, however, were part of the celebrations.
