  • Kate Middleton looked as amazing as usual in a McQueen ensemble...

    Kate Middleton wowed us once again with a stunning Alexander McQueen ensemble at the Trooping the Colour ceremony. The royal family pulled out all the stops in a traditional display of grandeur and pageantry to celebrate the Queen’s 88th birthday.

    The centuries-old ceremony, in which the Queen inspects the guards on parade, saw more than 200 horses and more than 400 musicians from all the Household Division Bands & Corps of Drums, all in the traditional ceremonial uniforms of the Household Cavalry, Royal Horse Artillery, and Foot Guards. 

    Kate passed inspection with flying colours (pardon the pun), in a perfect pearl and powder blue jacquard Alexander McQueen suit and a similarly hued Jane Taylor hat.

    Harry and Wills looked mighty fine, too…
