The royal family had a busy past week, including the Queen’s visit to Nottingham, Trooping the Colour, an event for Will & Kate, and Garter Day.
Diamond Jubilee Tour:
On Thursday, June 14th, the Queen, Prince William, and Kate visited Nottingham, England as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tour. Kate recycled her M-Missoni coat she wore to Fortnum and Mason with Camilla and the Queen back on March 1st. She also re-wore her Rachel Trevor-Morgan hat along with the LK Bennett “Art” Court shoe.
Trooping the Colour:
On Saturday, June 16th, the Queen had her official birthday celebration in London, known as Trooping the Colour. Her actual birthday is April 21st, but it has long been the tradition to celebrate her birthday publicly on a day in the summer, when the weather is more likely to be warm and sunny. Therefore, it is held on a Saturday in June. The queen wore a canary yellow outfit by her go-to designer, Angela Kelly. She also wore that outfit for Will and Kate’s wedding on April 29, 2011. Kate wore an Erdem dress and hat by Jane Corbett.
ARK Charity Event & Polo Match:
On Sunday, June 17th, Kate visited children for outdoor activities as part of the ARK (Absolute Return for Kids) Charity. She wore a vest by Really Wild Clothing Company, along with a Burberry shirt and Le Chameau Vierzonord wellies. Thank you to What Kate Wore for the identifications and images.
Later that day, Kate joined Will and their dog Lupo at the Beaufort Polo Club where both William and Harry played.
Monday, June 18th, was Garter Day. The Order of the Garter service was held at Windsor Castle. This day was founded by King Edward III in 1384. The Order is the country’s oldest Order of Chivalry. The Queen alone decides who receives the honor. Kate wore an Alexander McQueen coat that she also wore to Trooping the Colour last year. Her hat was by Jane Corbett. Sophie, Countess of Wessex is also a fashionable royal. She wore a Bruce Oldfield suit and Jimmy Choo shoes.
