Kate Middleton turned to one of her favourite designers, Alexander McQueen, once again for the Trooping of the Colour at Horse Guard's Parade. The Duchess adopted a smart silvery-blue jacquard silk skirt-suit from her wedding dress designer to celebrate the Queen's 88th birthday. 

The suit is another example of Duchess Kate's tastes for smart tailoring and we've seen her in a clean sculpted lapel like this one many times before. Her matching Jane Taylor hat reveals another favourite designer and style too - she seems to have a headpiece from this milliner for almost every occasion, always worn at a jaunt over her right eye.

Kate arrived at the event in a horse-drawn carriage with Prince Harry and a complimentary colour-palatte in the shape of Camilla's powder pink outfit. Like Camilla, who matched her ensemble with corresponding pink jewels, Kate complimented her look with a pearl cluster brooch and matching drop-earrings - these are ladies who have occasion-dressing rules nailed, but, perhaps a little spice might be nice next time. Maybe you can bring baby George in some McQueen tartan and a ruffle-neck blouse, Kate? Now that's some regal dressing we'd like to see!
