Kate, Princess of Wales, 41, attended today’s Trooping The Colour wearing a green outfit with a matching hat, along with the late Princess Diana’s earrings.
The Princess chose a green outfit today to pay homage to her association with the Irish Guards.
Kate’s dress was designed by Andrew Gn, and featured bejewelled designs all over the garment.
The Princess paired her dress with green stiletto heels, which looked amazing with her overall outfit.
The reason why Kate wore a bold monochrome green outfit, donning green from head-to-toe, is because it represents her role as Colonel of the Irish Guards.
This is a role she took over from her husband at the end of last year.
In addition, she wore a wide-brimmed green hat designed by Phillip Treacy, who is often the Royal Family’s go-to designer for headgear.
Kate chose to wear Diana’s earrings, which she often does at grand events, including Trooping The Colour during the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The drop earrings feature two blue sapphires, each of which is encircled by a diamond halo. Diana wore these earrings on numerous occasions, the 1996 Met Gala is possibly the most notable.
Princess Diana’s engagement ring, which was given to Kate when she and Prince William became engaged in 2010, is identical in style to the earrings.
Since the late Queen Elizabeth II died in September last year, this is the first Trooping the Colour the Royal Family has celebrated without her.
Last year’s festivities commemorated 70 years since the late monarch took the throne, but this year’s marks the beginning of a new era for the family with King Charles at the helm.
