Kate Middleton was the picture of confidence and the center of attention at the Queen’s Jubilee garden party this week. Kate came wearing the same Emilia Wickstead dress that she donned just 11 days earlier at another event. While she’s cheered for her choices today, decades ago fashion writers would have had a field day in the media about this fashion ‘no-no.”
It’s barely been two weeks since Kate wore the pink ensemble complete with hat to another public event, so she had to know the media would pick up on this. It’s the fact that she’s so content wearing these classy outfits more than once that scores Kate high points with the public, according to Mail Online.
Crowds gathered outside Buckingham Palace to get a glimpse of Kate at the Jubilee garden party and she didn’t disappoint a soul with her recycled outfit. It wasn’t too long ago in history when a royal wearing an outfit more than once would raise all kinds of comments about royal etiquette and scrutiny from the fashion watchers.
Times have changed and this change has a lot to do with Kate. She’s taken her commoner traits with her into the royal family highlighting her thrifty side when it comes to clothes. This is what the public loves to see, someone in the royal family they can relate to, and Kate is that someone for millions today.
Kate came to the party without William who was at the RAF at the time of this engagement. This is the second royal garden party of the year which hosted guests from all walks of life.
The Queen and Prince Phillip made their entrance as the band played the National Anthem. The Queen and her husband were followed by Kate, Prince Charles and Camilla making their entrance, which came with a welcoming round of applause.
