The fashion icon’s outfit for her father-in-law’s coronation has been the subject of much speculation.
WASHINGTON – Among the crowns, diamonds and colorful hats on display at Coronation of King Charles III, the princess of wales drew attention with a headdress made of silver and crystal.
Known for her elegant fashion, Princess Kate wore an ivory wool crepe dress by British designer Alexander McQueen under a formal blue gown. Instead of a tiara, the former Kate Middleton wore a floral headpiece, a diamond necklace and pearl earrings.
Princess Charlotte matched her mother a similar headdress with embroidered leaves. Her dress and cape were also styled by McQueen.
For the royal family and the government, the event – codenamed Operation Golden Globe – is a showcase of heritage, tradition and spectacle unmatched anywhere in the world.
For his coronation, King Charles III wore the crimson velvet robe of state worn by King George VI at his coronation in 1937. He wore a crimson tunic, cream silk shirt and Royal Navy trousers.
His grandson, Prince George, was one of four pages of honor who carried the train of the ceremonial robe.
Camilla, the Queen Consort, is also wearing a crimson robe originally made for Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Underneath, she is wearing a tailored dress by British designer Bruce Oldfield.
While Prince William wore the ceremonial uniform of the Welsh Guards, Prince Harry wore a morning suit. The Duke of Sussex wore a black set of three-piece tails and military medals on his chest.
Harry, who stepped down from his official duties in the royal family due to intense scrutiny from the British media, did not play a role in the service. His wife, Megan, remained in California with their young children.
