Kate Middleton in Alexander McQueen Dress and Jane Taylor Hat For Jubilee Service

05 June 2012 by

Well, you know what they say: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. That seems to be the sartorial mantra for the Royal family this Diamond Jubilee weekend as the Queen, Kate Middleton and Camilla firmly stick to their signature style for the final day of these fantabulous celebrations.

The Service of Thanksgiving took place this morning and St Paul's Cathedral was jam-packed, although sadly the Duke of Edinburgh was noticeably absent since being taken to hospital after standing in the rain for three hours suffering a bladder infection. But the lady of the hour, Queen Liz looked nonetheless delightful wearing another Angela Kelly ensemble after her senior dresser created that twinkling outfit for the boat pagent on Sunday.

The mint green dress is made of fine silk tulle, upon which tiny star shaped flowers have been embroidered, then embellished with silver thread. A mint green chiffon drape, scattered with Swarovski crystals on the shoulders, sweeps over the shoulders and down the back of the coat. The crown of the hat is covered in the same tulle and has also been draped in mint green chiffon and Swarovski crystals. Oo-ee.

The Duchess of Cambridge has also returned to what she wears best: Alexander McQueen. After sporting a red frock on Sunday and covering up with a black coat on Monday - both by the Brit brand - this is the DoC's third McQueen outing in as many days. What a hat trick! Sarah Burton is fast proving to be her go-to designer for such high-profile events and who can blame our Middy when it's such a winning formula? We say she looks mighty elegant.

Burton, the designer of Kate's legendary wedding dress, has created this stunning blush-coloured shift dress covered in lace with full-length sleeves, satin waist detail and ladylike knee-length hemline. The look is expertly polished off with those now-infamous nude LK Bennett heels, a dainty satin box clutch, drop pearl earrings and fabulously floral headgear by Jane Taylor.

UPDATE: Our pals at Jane Taylor describe the concotion as a nude beaded cocktail hat, with silk tulle and organza discs and smoked quartz detail. It's about to appear on the website any. minute. now and will be available in a range of colours for £790. Go, copy-Kates, go!

'Both the Countess of Wessex and the Duchess of Cambridge look stunning today,' the excited milliner exclusively told Grazia Daily. 'They both have a unique yet timeless sense of style and wear hats so well! It's the dream to have two members of the Royal family wearing my pieces to such an important event.'

No prizes for guessing what Camilla's wearing. Yep, the Duchess of Cornwall also stayed true to her trademark fashion formula with a golden basket weave motif dress coat and nude trimmings by Anna Valentine topped off with another Philip Treacy hat. This is the same tried-and-tested combo that she wore for her own wedding, Kate and Wills' Big Day and, of course, Saturday's flotilla. You gotta admire that commitment.

Meanwhile, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie brought a splash of colour to the proceedings with Bea in a cornflower blue coat dress by Kinder topped off with Stephen Jones headgear and Euge in a purple Suzannah frock also with a Stephen Jones number atop her head. See, not one lady parts hat in sight.
