Kate Recycles her McQueen Coat for Garter Day Celebrations

Kate, along with the royal family, took part in the historic Garter Day service. The event was held at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Monday (June 18) in Windsor, England.

Founded by King Edward III in 1348, the Order of the Garter is the country’s oldest order of chivalry and the last remaining honour to be given at the discretion of the sovereign.

The Duchess of Cambridge recycled her cream double-breasted Alexander McQueen coat-dress(£2,290)  that she wore almost one year ago to Trooping of the Colour Ceremony.The sculpturally tailored cream cotton and wool-blend piqué coat accentuates Kate's fine form and features a tiered Samurai skirt.

We can only guess on what Kate is wearing under the McQueen coat-dress and the consensus seems to be the Reiss Peacock dress that she wore to the Epsom Derby last year. Whatever dress she chose, it had a fuller, frillier skirt giving the coat added volume.

As for her headgear, The Duchess chose a matching cream hat by Jane Corbett.

Kate accessorized with her LK Bennett's nude Sledge heels (£175), her LK Bennett woven straw Natalie clutch (£140), and her Kiki McDonough green amethyst earrings.

Kate looked comfortable as she spent the morning with children from inner-city backgrounds. They were building tents and making campfires, developing their confidence and teamwork skills during a weekend visit to the countryside.

For many of the kids, aged between and eight and nine years old, it was the first time they had even seen the countryside or been away from home.

The children came from ARK's King Solomon Academy Primary School which is based in North Westminster, London.

Kate wore skin-tight "Molecule' blue Zara jeans ($79.90), her khaki Military Pocket Jersey Burberry shirt (seen on the Canada Tour - £295), a khaki Zara 'basic' sweater - thanks to WKW for the ID ($16.90), a waterproof The London Trading Company 'Really Wild' green leather waistcoat ($870) and her green Le Chameau wellies (£300).
