The Duchess of Middleton looked gorgeous in a 'cream' tailored coat by fashion
favourite Alexander McQueen for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding at St
George's Chapel, in Windsor.
Of course, it's the same designer who created Kate's wedding dress for her big
day in April 2011.
Kate arrived at the service hand-in-hand with the bridesmaids, including
daughter Princess Charlotte, 3, who were dressed in white with rose-adorned
She teamed her ensemble with a matching Philip Treacy hat and shoes by Jimmy
Though undeniably stunning, the Duchess' choice created a stir as wedding
protocol dictates that only the bride wears white when tying the knot.
Many viewers took to Twitter to complain about the colour.
"I'm no wedding expert... but should Kate Middleton be wearing white to a
wedding if it's not her wedding?"
"Is Kate Middleton srsly wearing white to the #RoyalWedding (sic)"
" Kate Middleton : the only person in the world who can get away with wearing
white at a wedding."
"Kate Middleton in white ... she just cant take that its someone elses day."
"Doesnt Kate Middleton know you shouldnt wear white/ivory to a wedding????"
However, the truth is the outfit is actually a "primrose yellow wool silk
tailored coat", NOT a white or cream dress.
It's the fourth time Kate has worn this outfit, including to Charlotte's
christening in July 2015
Its one of the first times weve seen the Duchess of Cambridge in public since
she gave birth to her third child Prince Louis on April 23.
Kate wore a red bespoke Jenny Packham dress with a white lace collar to
introduce her baby boy to the world, as she and William left the Lindo Wing at
St Marys Hospital.
She was also spotted on her way to Windsor two days before the wedding for the
rehearsal, wearing sunglasses and a floral Michael Kors dress .
