The Royal Family were in London on Friday 3 June to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen’s throne at a thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral.
The service was part of the four-day extravaganza planned to mark the Queen’s platinum jubilee and almost all of the family was in attendance – including the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Kate Middleton, 40, looked particularly stunning at the event, wearing a yellow Emilia Wickstead dress paired with a matching yellow hat
For the occasion, the Duchess of Cambridge opted for a hat designed by Philip Treacy, who happens to be one of Meghan Markle’s favorite hat designers, reports OK magazine.
Royal fans might consider this headwear choice a subtle nod to her sister-in-law, as she also wore a Philip Treacy hat to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018.
The hat was yellow again, but paler, almost cream, and had a similar floral design.
The Duchess is clearly a huge fan of Philip Treacy, having recently been spotted wearing another of his creations at the last Royal Garden Party of the year.
That was in May and it was a green number.
In addition to the subtle nod to Meghan and Harry, Kate Middleton also appeared to pay tribute to the Queen at the Thanksgiving service.
She complemented her outfit with the Queen’s pearl earrings, which the monarch wore in her first Royal Command portrait by Dorothy Wilding in July 1952.
The earrings, made from pearls given by the Ruler of Bahrain to the Queen and Prince Philip at the time of their wedding, were also worn by Princess Diana in 1982.
Her Majesty was not present as she felt some discomfort after Trooping The Color on Thursday but is said to have been watching on TV from Windsor Castle.
