Kate Middleton dons $4,232 Alexander McQueen cream coat dress for G7 Summit
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, attended the event at the Eden Project, in Cornwall, with her husband Prince William but all eyes were on her
The Duchess of Cambridge always turns heads when she makes a public appearance. This time around, Kate Middleton attended the reception for the G7 summit and her new cream coat was the highlight of the evening for many royal family fans.
Kate wore an Alexander McQueen outfit that is reportedly thought to have cost $4,232 (£3,000). She might have appeared alongside her husband Prince William as the couple attended the event at the Eden Project, in Cornwall, but on social media, her fans and supporters could only gush about her.
The reception was hosted by the Queen, 95, and Prince Charles, 72, for the world leaders and their spouses following the start of the summit today.
What did Kate wear?
Kate sported this look at the reception for the world leaders and their spouses hosted by the Queen and Prince Charles. She wore a beautiful cream-coloured coat, which according to a report in the DailyMail cost at least $3,526.88 (£2,500). The 39-year-old paired the dreamy dress with a clutch bag and beige heels. Her natural makeup and hair complemented the elegant but simple outfit perfectly - she wore her hair in her signature side parting and wore a simple smokey eye look.
William walked alongside her sporting a navy suit with a purple tie. The couple joined the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at the reception at the Eden Project.
Earlier, as Kate was arriving to meet US First Lady Jill Biden for the first time, she was pictured wearing a $1,587.09 (£1,125) fuchsia midi dress from Alexander McQueen. She had paired her outfit with a $317.42 (£225) L.K. Bennett handbag and matching shoes. It was a coincidence that 70-year-old Jill was also wearing pink.
The two were meeting children in reception class at the Connor Downs Academy near Camborne. After that, they had a round table discussion with UK education experts convened by Kate.
On social media, Kate's fans were gushing about her outfits. "How beautiful is this pictures? #KateMiddleton #DuchessofCambridge" one wrote.
Another user commented under a video of The Royal Family Channel on YouTube, "Isn’t Kate elegant and regal! And I’m not a monarchist." In the video, Kate can be seen along with the Queen as she uses a ceremonial sword to cut the royal birthday cake at Eden Project. Another user wrote, "I can't quite get my head around just how gorgeous is the Duchess of Cambridge." Another commented, "Kate is such an asset for the Crown, always elegant and stylish."
At the same time, some were concerned she had lost a considerable amount of weight. "Duchess of Cambridge stands out over everyone because she is so tall and she looks so good in everything she wears. A Fashion Designers dream. She looked like she lost a lot weight in one photo," one commented. "She has lost so much weight. I sure hope she's okay," another added.
As per reports, President Biden and his wife Jill will visit Windsor Castle on Sunday, June 13, 2021, for an audience with the Queen. This will be their first official meeting since he became president.
