The Royal Ascot
One of the royal family’s annual traditions is the Royal Ascot, a racecourse located in Ascot, Berkshire, London, used for thoroughbred horse racing. The Princess of Wales’s Ascot dress was light-blue and was designed by Elie Saab and was gorgeously detailed, from the sheer sleeves to the tiny polka dots.
She paired the dress perfectly with a powder-blue hat by Philip Treacy topped off with the floral design. Fans noticed that the Princess and the Queen were matching for the event, who was also wearing blue and a floral hat.
The Princess Wears Zara
Middleton managed to make Zara look like royalty – yes, you read that right. The Princess herself was photographed wearing wide-leg black culottes and a simple black and white polka dot top.
Kate stepped out in this perfect outfit for an event at the Sunshine House Children and Young People’s Health and Development Center in London in September. She was visiting the center to meet with nurses who may be the reason she went for a chic yet approachable look.
Magical in Magenta
The Princess of Wales may be a Princess, but she isn’t above wearing the same outfit twice. She wore this magenta suit twice, the first time in January 2017 during a visit to the Royal Opera House in London.
The suit comes from Oscar de la Renta’s 2015 fall collection, but somehow the Princess makes the outfit look timeless. The second time she sported the outfit was in November 2019 during a visit to the Nook Children’s Hospice in Norfolk, England.
Tradition and Change
Princess Kate and Prince William wore matching green ensembles to honor the official color of Pakistan. The Princess wore a floor-length glittery Jenny Packham gown with a traditional dupatta scarf. Royal women have paid tribute to the nation with their outfits for years.
Her husband, Prince William, was the first male member of the royal family to wear a knee-length button-up sherwani. Men in South Asia traditionally wear the knee-length button-up coat.
Beauty in Blue
Kate wore several great looks during her and Prince William’s royal tour of Pakistan. On the first day of the royal visit, Kate sported a shalwar kameez, a traditional Pakistani dress designed by Catherine Walker.
The unique teal-blue color of the Princess’s dress was similar to the shalwar-kameez that Middleton’s late mother-in-law, Princess Diana wore during a visit to Pakistan in 1996. This is not the first time the two royal women have been compared to each other. Kate has channeled Princess Diana’s style in the past.
Fashion Recycling Revolutionary
The Princess of Wales is known for her revolutionary fashion recycling, and this white off-the-shoulder Barbara Casasola dress was no exception to the change Kate has made in the royal world.
The mother of three rocked the dress for the first time at the Art Fund Museum of the Year prize event in 2016. She stunned in the dress again when she arrived in it at the first annual Addiction Awareness Week gala – accessorizing with a satin clutch and glittery metallic pumps.
Ethically Conscious Collections
The first dress the Princess debuted in 2019 was a dark-green, long-sleeved number that she chose from one of her favorite brands. The dress was designed by Beulah London, an ethically conscious brand that donates 10% of its profit to victims of human trafficking.
The Princess had worn this brand a few times before. She decided to dress in one of their $770 designs for a visit to Family Action, a UK charity that seeks to provide emotional and financial support to underprivileged families.
A Family Affair
The Princess of Wales sported a yellow coatdress by Alexander McQueen while attending the Trooping the Color parade at Buckingham Palace with her whole family. Middleton wore a matching floral fascinator by Philip Treacy to the event – which was also a rare joint appearance for Middleton and Meghan Markle, who came out of maternity leave to attend the event.
Some royal family fans believed that Kate was thoughtfully giving a nod to Markle’s first wedding anniversary as her dress was similar to the dress she wore to Meghan and Harry’s wedding a year prior.
A Princess in McQueen
White seems to be the Princess’s color – every time she steps out in it, she looks stunning. The Princess wore this Alexander McQueen gown to the 2019 EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) in London, which she attended with Prince William. She paired the dress with a bun, a diamond bracelet, and a white clutch.
When the royal couple arrived at the red carpet outside the Royal Albert Hall, the accessory that caught everyone’s attention was the Princess’ earrings – pearl and diamond drop earrings which once belonged to Princess Diana.
A Disney Princess
2019 was a subtle year for the Princess, she kept her style fairly casual this year but looked like a Disney princess while attending the 100 Women in Finance Gala in London.
The multi-toned rose-pink tulle gown, paired with a velvet Prada clutch that matched her belt and sparkling white heels designed by Oscar de la Renta. This isn’t the first time Middleton has turned to the princesses of Disney for inspiration – the Princess has channeled Cinderella and Aurora in the past.
A Lady and a Rebel
Kate Middleton sported a $2,480 Missoni for a party in support of young people who were making a difference in Northern Ireland. The Princess and Prince William’s attendance was a surprise to those being honored.
The sea-foam green dress was a great look, but her outfit wasn’t the only thing that people were talking about. Middleton made headlines during the event when she went behind the bar to pour herself her own pint. A Princess, a lady, and a rebel.
On the second day of her visit to Northern Ireland, the Princess wore a baby-blue Mulberry coat. Mulberry is one of Kate’s favorite UK labels. She wore the chic coat during a visit to a charity Cinemagic event in Ballymena.
The coat features large buttons down the front and a matching belt. The simple yet elegant coat’s most interesting feature is the unique cape that tops off the look with a royal flair.
Classic Autumn Outfit
One of her more casual looks was worn for a surprise visit to the National History Museum in October. The Princess wore a beautiful burgundy sweater with a defined neckline and sleeves. She made a bold move by pairing the sweater with an olive shade wide-leg trousers, nailing the classic elegant autumn outfit.
The look was topped off with burgundy heels, a Chanel handbag, and gold Asprey hoops. The color collaboration was a risky one – wearing two bold colors together can often clash, but Kate looked stunning and proves that when you wear something with confidence, it just works.
An Elegant Dream
The Princess chose a blue ensemble yet again when she wore this dress to a reception at none other than Buckingham Palace in March. Kate looked royal in this pastel baby-blue dress – the high collar and small buttons down the front give this dress an elegant and classy vibe.
In some mysterious way, the Princess somehow makes even the most old-fashioned pieces of clothing look modern. She paired the look with a baby-blue clutch and cream-colored heels.
Radiant in Red
As we’ve seen until now, the Princess often wears pastels, so when she stepped out with this Catherine Walker coatdress – it immediately became the talk of the town. The striking red coatdress featured big gold buttons, and she added a matching bow fascinator to the look.
She wore the bold look for the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in March. Those who follow the Princess’ style closely know that this wasn’t the first time she wore the coat – it was worn previously during a visit to New Zealand in 2014.
Adding Caps and Letting Her Hair Down
If you take a good look at the two photos below, you’ll notice that they were not taken at the same event. Another example of the Princess recycling a gown was when she added cap sleeves to her floral Alexander McQueen gown.
Middleton put a spin on the gown she wore the 2017 BAFTAs and re-wore the dress for a night out at the Portrait Gala in March 2019. When she first wore the dress, it featured off-the-shoulder straps, but then the Princess looked a bit less formal twist by simply adding sleeves for her appearance.
The Princess and the Queen
This may come as somewhat of a surprise to you, but the Princess and the Queen’s visit to King’s College in London in March was the two royal women’s first solo outing without another member of the royal family.
It seems like the Princess decided to let the Queen shine on this outing as Her Majesty is radiant in baby-pink while the Princess opted for a gray Catherine Walker coatdress. Kate paired her subtle coatdress with a black fascinator that matched her black tights, heels and, clutch.
Charlotte’s First Day
For her first day of school, Princess Charlotte’s mom wore a simple floral dress. As Middleton took her daughter to Thomas’s Battersea, a $23,000-a-year school, she was caught on camera wearing a $180 Micheal Kors dress.
This wasn’t the first time she wore the floral number, she previously wore it to Meghan and Harry’s wedding rehearsal in 2018. Kensington Palace tweeted a photo of both children and parents entering the school grounds. By the looks of it, Princess Charlotte appeared to have a case of the first day scares, hiding behind her mom.
Kate has perfectly curated her wardrobe – the patterns and colors she wears are always true to her style. The Princess sported this two thousand dollar dress for a visit at the Back to Nature garden in London in September.
The powder-blue (which we already know the Princess adores) dress had a lovely floral pattern on it and was worn with a matching belt. Middleton is walking with poise and a huge smile as she greets fans – it’s hard not to wish we were there.
Kate and Prince William greeted Prince Shah Karim Al Hussaini, Aga Khan IV, during their visit to the Aga Khan Centre in London on October 2. The Princess’s teal ensemble by ARoss Girl x Soler was worn with a green belt that flowed down the dress.
Middleton paired her outfit perfectly with earrings by Pakistani designer Zeen. The decision to wear a Pakistani designer’s earrings was an endearing tribute as she and her husband met with the prince before their royal tour in Pakistan.
When Meghan and Prince Harry’s two-month-old son, Archie Harrison, was christened at Windsor Castle’s private chapel – the Princess was there looking as chic as ever. Kate Middleton wore a bright pink Stella McCartney dress, which she paired with red pumps.
Of course, in the royal family, accessories are everything, so it only makes sense that the Princess’s hatband and simple drop earrings were gorgeous. We know the celebration wasn’t about her – but she manages to steal the show somehow.
Quintessential English Summer
Kate is known for being a longtime tennis fan, she makes an effort to watch a couple of Wimbledon matches a year. She was spotted at a game, sitting in her usual spot in the Center Court’s Royal Box.
The Princess explained to People magazine in 2017 that the tournament “is such a quintessential part of English summer.” This year, she opted for a black-and-white outfit wearing a Suzannah dress and Alexander McQueen belt.
A Beauty in Black & White
Kate wore a new stunning black-and-white ensemble when she attended the Order of the Garter ceremony in June. The Princess of Wales wore yet another Catherine Walker coat dress with a white collar and black piping.
To top off the royal look, she wore a black hat, pearl earrings, and black pumps. The Princess wasn’t the only royal at the service, and she was joined by the Queen, Prince William, Prince Charles, and other members of the family.
A Style Icon
We’re going to throw things back to prove that the Princess has been stylish for years. The heavily sequined and studded Jenny Packham gown, from the designer’s 2011 collection, is one of the first pieces that the Princess recycled.
It is also one of the gowns that made her a fashion icon. She wore it here in 2016 when she attended a charity gala dinner at Houghton Hall in King’s Lynn, England. The first time she wore the Packham design was in 2011 in her first formal appearance after her wedding to Prince William.
Stars and Royalty
One of Kate’s most iconic looks was worn in 2018, marking her as one of royalty’s most fashionable family members. The beautiful Erdem dress has an asymmetric neckline, full-length mismatched buttons, and a vintage-style embellishment.
The dress is timeless and although Kate made it her own adding a purple belt, royalty and stars alike have worn it. Carey Mulligan was the first to wow in this look, in 2017 to an awards event.
Around Christmas-time, Kensington Palace released photos of Kate Middleton visiting the Kingston Hospital’s Maternity Unit. The photos were taken in early 2019, when the Princess of Wales visited the maternity unit, observing clinics, visiting post-natal wards.
For her visit, Kate chose a printed dress and black tights. During her visit, the mother of three joined community midwives during their house calls. Middleton wrote an open letter thanking the midwives for the work they do, acknowledging them, and the effort they put into their work to make lives better.
It’s always sweet when parents dress somewhat similar to their children, and as you can see, both Kate and William had mini-mes at Christmas. To attend Christmas Day services at Sandringham, Kate paired a simple chic gray coat with her favorite shade of green.
The Princess wore an emerald green hat and heels which matched her daughter, Princess Charlotte’s coat. Prince William and Prince George are also dressed similar, and we can’t help but love everything about this photo.
We’ve seen a lot of Kate’s Pakistan tour fashion, she chose her outfits perfectly for each occasion she attended – playing Cricket was no different for the Princess. On the fourth day of their tour, the royal couple visited the National Cricket Academy.
The event was casual, so comfortable attire was required as they even tried to play the sport, and the Princess paired white sneakers with a shalwar kameez designed by Gul Ahmed.
Her Signature Coat
There are some signature looks the Princess will not give up, and we hope she doesn’t give them up soon because she looks stunning in them. Kate Middleton may be most recognizable in this blue Alexander McQueen coat, which she has worn on many occasions throughout the years.
She wore the coat while she attended an extraordinary event in honor of Sir David Attenborough, in Birkenhead. For the special occasion, she paired the coat with navy heels, diamond earrings, and an Asprey clutch.
She may be down-to-earth, but this Princess knows how to dress up when need be. She and William often chose similar colors for occasions they attend together (he is wearing a pink pin), and you know what they say – a couple that dresses together stays together.
For one of the Queen’s Garden Parties, Kate wore a powdered pink coatdress, designed by none other than one of her favorite designers, Alexander McQueen. She paired this stunning coat with a headpiece by Juliette Botterill.
Shades of Gray
The Princess of Wales is known for the bright colors and prints she often wears (and stuns in), but every once in a while, she chooses a mellow shade.
Kate arrived at Kings College London wearing a Catherine Walker Coat dress. Middleton paired the gray look off with black tights and pumps and a small black clutch. Of course, the look would not be complete without the black Sylvia Fletcher for Lock Hatter’s hat.
New Year’s Resolutions
The new year has brought promising fashion change for the Princess. We are positive that the Princess will surprise us with many new and stunning outfits. We’re also betting all our money on the fact that most of the Princess’s outfits will be coatdresses.
She started the year off as predicted with this multicolored coat dress. On January 5th, 2020, Middleton wore a bold royal blue fedora while attending church in Sandringham with her husband, Prince William.
Looking happy and confident as ever, Kate stepped out in November in a deep royal blue dress by Eponine, a Couture Fashion Brand based in London. This was not the first time the Princess dawned the look. She had worn this dress once before in 2017.
This time around, the Princess paired her outfit with stilettos made by Rupert Sanderson, a black clutch and gorgeous sapphire drop earrings. Kate looked so stunning in this, and we can’t help but wonder if we’ll see this dress again anytime soon.
Royalty Has Style
One of Kate’s favorite designers was also one of the late Princess Diana’s favorites, Catherine Walker. Walker, a French-born fashion designer, based in London, has been tied to the Royal Family for years.
When she attended her close friend, Sophie Carter’s wedding, the Princess wore a Walker design. Unsurprisingly, this was not the first time she wore this coat and dress. She first wore the look while on a royal tour of Poland and Germany in 2017.
Winning at Wimbledon
Kate is known for loving Wimbledon, so it didn’t come as much of a surprise when the Princess of Wales and the Duchess of Sussex made their first joint solo appearance at Wimbledon in mid-2018. Kate and Meghan were there to watch Serena Williams play Germany’s, Angelique Kerber.
For the summery sporty occasion, Kate wore a polka-dotted Jenny Packham dress. We have since seen the stylish sisters-in-law together on many occasions, so it’s safe to say they hit it off smoothly.
Kate followed in her mother-in-law’s footsteps, looking equally chic in her loose blue kurta as she mingled at a school in Pakistan on one of their overseas visits. Kate was captured in a royal blue shalwar kameez by local designer Maheen Khan and she matched her blue outfit and earrings with a ring.
William and Kate had a meeting with Pakistan’s leader Imran Khan. Princess Diana had visited Pakistan a few times and it has been said that she was very fond of the country.
Paying Special Tribute
Kate Middleton’s latest appearance has been a chic style win for the royal. But out of all her sightings, this one has a meaning more special than most. Paying tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, on the 10th anniversary of his death, the Princess stepped out in a navy McQueen coat and matching skirt.
The touching tribute, worn with black boots, was a nod to the late British designer’s fashion house that she’s been a long-time fan of.
The Princess surprised us again when stepping out in Newtownards, Northern Ireland, and masters casual chic on a farm visit. We saw Kate interacting with young farm visitors and a fascinating mix of animals, including snakes and alpacas. For the occasion, Kate was appropriately dressed down for a day on the farm.
She wore a khaki green jacket with a sky blue turtleneck, skinny black jeans, and tall brown tassel boots. The Princess rounded out her outfit with sparkling golden leaf earrings.
The Princess looks effortlessly chic and sleek with her Reiss gray blazer, skinny black pants, and Aquatalia ankle boots. Her ashy grey jacket pairs well with the bluebell Cashmere Roll Neck Sweater. Her outfit looks polished and minimalistic, revealing a different look for her compared to her dresses, suits, and more formal wear. Kate debuted another gorgeous item – a pretty new pair of Catherine Zoraida earrings, featuring a leafy fern design. Kate has been a long-time fan of London label Zoraida, wearing her delicate gold designs on several occasions.

Her Favorite Wedges
Here we see Catherine, Princess of Wales, visiting The Royal Horticultural Society Back to Nature Garden that she designed at the 2019 Royal Horticultural Society Hampton Court Palace. With her floral short sleeve midi dress, Kate Middleton pairs it with one of her favorite pairs of shoes.
She usually wears with more casual dresses are undoubtedly her Castañer tan wedges. She has been seen wearing these wedges on several occasions, so it would be safe to say they are among her favorite.
Relaxed with Style
Kate appeared for an interview and looked relaxed in a Sézane jumper that we’ve seen her in before. The Princess paired her blue coat with a black turtleneck – the first was in late-January at the London Early Years Foundation nursery and pre-school in Stockwell Gardens.
Back then, she styled it with black stocking and long boots and matching black gloves, but this time she wore the outfit more casually, with her hair styled in loose waves.
Lime Green Dress
From all the elaborate gala dinners, overseas travels, and everyday royal engagements, the Princess of Wales certainly requires a comprehensive wardrobe that might challenge even the most devoted shopper. We’ve seen a change in style direction for the Princess’ style recently as Kate made an appearance in this very unexpectedly bright dress.
The lime green makes a real statement and catches our eye, although she has wisely toned down the dress with black stockings and L.K.Bennett Mollie Boots.
Calm and Collected
Meeting with dignitaries and high profile politicians can leave most people nervous and easily agitated, but not Kate, who didn’t grow up being prepared for this kind of lifestyle, like most royalty. And yet, Kate looks incredibly calm and collected as she wore a crisp white skirt-suit with a peplum waist for a visit to Poland.
Kate added a red clutch for a pop of color. She accessorized her outfit with a pair of beige suede heels and understated jewelry.
Go for Green
On her tour to Canada, Kate has transformed herself into something akin to a Fifties movie star. Kate Middleton Debuts a New Smythe Jacket during her visit to the Royal Visit in Canada. Seeing as their engagements called for some outdoor activity, Kate opted for a rather casual outfit. Her moss green blazer looked perfectly tailored and effortlessly chic, she wears the color so well!
The Princess finished her outfit with a Somerset by Alice Temperley tie-bow blouse, her go-to Zara pants, and cowboy boots.
When we imagine the Princess of Wales’s closet, we believe it to be filled with every item of clothing from every designer imaginable. But regardless of how many options she may or may not have, there’s one designer that Kate always seems to reach for, and it’s Mulberry.
As she’s wrapped up in a thick green coat, hat, gloves and snow boots, teamed with Sorel snow boots, and of course, the Mulberry handbag. The outfit is finished off with a pair of classic earrings.
Elegant in Midnight Blue
Over the years, the mom of three has worn the almost-periwinkle shade in gowns, coats, and everything in between. And the Princess has wowed us each time! With this classic look, Kate bundled up in a midnight blue overcoat, that she paired with a red and white heart patterned scarf from British brand Beulah.
As an organization, Beulah’s aim is to eradicate slavery and help create employment opportunities for vulnerable women. She sported this outfit on a trip to Swansea in Wales.
Gorgeous in Every Color
On the 29th of January this year, the Princess made a previously unannounced visit to the LEYF Stockwell Gardens Nursery and Pre-school, where she helped served breakfast to children. For the casual event, Kate chose an Aegean blue coat, a white Sezanne sweater, and black ankle boots.
Princess Kate looks gorgeous in every color of the rainbow and one of her favorite colors to wear is blue. Whether in deep navy or aqua, she carries off the color so well.
Making an Entrance
What an entrance! Kate Middleton’s Pakistan royal tour wardrobe featured countless incredible looks, but this bespoke ombre, ranging from pale turquoise to aqua blue. Catherine Walker ensemble made a lasting impression. She wore it upon her arrival, straight from the plane.
The dress was inspired by a shalwar kameez, which is a traditional outfit consisting of a dress and trousers. She sported it at the Pakistani Air Force Base Nur Khan on the 14th of October last year in Islamabad.
Ready to Go
Back on the 31st of October last year, we saw The Princess step out for a visit to the Imperial War Museum in London. Kate wore a rich blue dress by Jenny Packham with a clutch and nude heels. The dress is extremely flattering on her already trim figure.
Kate Middleton has often worn outfits by Jenny Packham, who is a well-known and highly regarded British fashion designer. Jenny mostly makes ready-to-wear clothes but also specializes in wedding dresses.
All That Glitters is Green
When meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan, Kate wore a vibrant green tunic by Catherine Walker over trousers by Maheen Kahn, a look which she paired with a scarf by Satringi and earrings by Zeen. Kate said of the outfit: “I am personally in love with the green dress she wore.
The cuts perfectly complimented her body type, yet the dress was sophisticated and understated as it should have been for a visit to a notoriously modest culture.
The Princess of Wales arrived at Wimbledon last year wearing a vibrant green dress by Dolce and Gabbana, which she has worn before. Kate is a keen tennis player herself and was there in an official capacity as a royal patron.
After dazzling in white the day before, she decided on the dress that she had worn before, during her 2016 royal tour of Canada. The look was styled with a Dolce & Gabbana bag, nude pumps, and loop earrings.
Kate looked sophisticated in a floor-length black Diane von Furstenberg lace dress with a scalloped neckline and three-quarter length sleeves at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families Gala Dinner held at The Orangery at Kensington Palace.
Interestingly, Diane von Fürstenberg is royalty herself as Princess Diane of Fürstenberg. She first rose to prominence when she married into the German princely House of Fürstenberg, as the wife of Prince Egon von Fürstenberg. A year after marrying, Fürstenberg began designing women’s clothes.
Back in July 2011, Kate and William attended a cocktail party at the United Kingdom’s Consul-General’s residence in Los Angeles. This event was the second item on their itinerary for their USA-leg of the royal tour. Earlier in the day, the duo attended a business summit in Beverley Hills.
Both the Governor and the Mayor of California welcomed the royal couple to California at the event. Several famous faces were at the party too, including footballer David Beckham.
A Tribute to Princess Diana
Prince William and Harry paid tribute to their mother, Princess Diana, with a visit to her memorial garden at Kensington Palace on the day before the 20th anniversary of her death. The Princess of Wales joined them on a tour of the Sunken Garden, which has been transformed into the White Garden in Diana’s memory this summer.
The Princess chose an elegant green Prada tea-length dress with a high neck and long sleeves. The Royals were led on a walk around the grounds and pointed out many of Diana’s favorite flowers, from lilies to white roses.
Radiant in Red
Kate Middleton was a vision in red for a Heads together event at the official opening of The Global Academy in Hayes, England. The Princess joined Princes Harry and William as she looked flawless in a bright poppy-hued Armani skirt suit.
The fitted zip-up blazer featured a flattering ruching along the bust and a slight split at the neck. She paired it with a matching knee-length pencil skirt, a pair of classic nude pumps, and a slim leather clutch—also nude.
Black and White
Here’s another look from her Royal Pakistan tour. Kate was seen in a Beulah black blazer coat, a white tunic, white pants, and black Russell & Bromley flats. She and Prince William attended their final event, a visit to Islamabad’s Army Canine Unit, where they met dogs and puppies trained to identify explosive devices.
Her outfit choice is as perfect as it is understated and appropriate for the environment. We don’t often see Kate in black and white like this, so it sure is a refreshing change!
When in Paris
These photos were from the second day of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s trip to the City of Light, and it comes as no surprise that the Princess had already mastered French style.
Middleton embraced Paris on her weekend visit, wearing a chic printed blue coatdress from Chanel, accented with a double-C belt and quilted handbag from the historic brand. Prince William, on the other hand, paired perfectly with his wife, wearing a navy blue suit, white button-up shirt, and maroon tie.
Kate Middleton is the master of subtle styling tricks. Kate’s green suit jacket, which she wore on a visit to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, seems like standard outerwear. But, upon closer inspection, we catch a glimpse of her a new fashion hack.
Kate wore a tie-neck blouse underneath her Hobbs London jacket and let the Peter Pan collar stick out, creating the illusion that it was all one piece. This is easy to miss as the Gerard Darel top blended perfectly with the round neckline of her jacket.
Prince William, Harry, and Princess Kate were putting their heads together once again. At a briefing at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts on Tuesday, the royal trio outlined their plans and hopes for Heads Together, the foundation of their campaign to shine a light on mental health issues. Kate stepped out in a floral-print Erdem dress.
The Heads Together organization is one that she, Prince William, and Prince Harry, stand behind in their effort to promote mental health awareness.
Proper and Polished
During an outing on Friday, the 4th of November, 2016 while visiting the Nelson Trust Women’s Centre, which is a Vulnerable Women’s Center in Gloucester, England. We also adore seeing Middleton often visiting those least fortunate. Kate looked proper and polished in a black turtleneck top, a Dolce & Gabbana buttoned tweed skirt and a pale blue Mulberry coat.
She paired her look with an autumn-ready set of black pumps and matching tights, and her luxurious brunette locks billowing in loose waves at her shoulders.
Coated With Style
On a visit to the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise in Northern Ireland, Kate was seen braving the rainy weather in a stylish coat. With the kind of elegant style that would make any girl envious, it is clear to see that the Princess of Wales has a fine touch when it comes to fashionable expression.
Sporting a beautifully contrasting color against the local surroundings, this exquisite choice has her standing out from the crowd. The buckled wrist straps are especially lovely.
Knitted for a Queen
While some might suggest that knitted wear, especially with patterned styling, would have you looking old fashioned, it is seemingly surprising how this was the exact opposite with Kate Middleton. Looking elegant with a refined touch of professionalism, the Princess mastered the knitted look in this skirt and jacket.
With a modern approach to the skirt’s design and the exquisite detailing of the jacket, it is inspiring to see Kate look so beautiful in this youthful expression of office inspired style.
One of the most difficult color combinations to pull off is the classic black and white. For the Princess of Wales, though, it seems to be one of her favorite combinations. The elegance of the jacket and blouse just blends so perfectly with the dark details of her hat, clutch, and skirt and is pleasing to the eye.
Perhaps, what makes this look so fashionable, is the added white patterns of the skirt, which adds to the expressive nature of the lovely combination.
The Devil in the Lack of Details
Some may think the abundance of detail expresses that sophistication, but here, Kate proves everyone wrong. Walking the red carpet in a lovely little number, the Princess appears incredibly flattering in this unsophisticated dress.
Despite the lack of frills and elegant details, this plain-looking dress has the Princess looking extravagant rather easily. As some might say, it is not what you wear, but rather how you wear it. Unsurprisingly, the Princess of Wales certainly has the right strut for this dress.
It appears that Kate is a big fanatic of simple style. Again, appearing on the red carpet in a dress that has little details to draw attention, she somehow pulls off an extravagant look.
Without frills, and with only a lovely neckpiece, Kate steals the focus of the night in a way that makes it look like she did not even try. The contrast of the black shoes and clutch is a lovely touch of expression that accentuates her simple beauty.
True Street Couture
From the red carpet to the sidewalk, style follows the Princess of Wales everywhere. In a casual look that has all the refined touches of style befitting a princess, Kate looks especially lovely here on a day out.
How her blouse combines with the theme of her purse, and how the details of the jacket blends with those jeans is all the proof needed to say that this girl has a natural sense for fashion. Not to mention how the whole selection, with the added details of the boots and belt, is oh so flattering to her lovely figure.
Old Fashion Never Turns To Cold Expression
Fashion from the sixties and seventies, in all honesty, does not suit every girl, but it appears the Princess of Wales seems to be the contrary. Looking exceptionally elegant in a blue, checkered dress that seems inspired by the retro looks of Diana’s era, Kate was seen arriving at the Honiara International Airport.
Welcomed to the Solomon Islands in a style that has set Kate apart from other socialites, she looked both lovely and sophisticated, especially with the added details of white from her clutch and high heels.
Once more sporting the combination of black and white, the Princess looked beautiful as she arrived at the Warner Brothers Studio. Despite that polka dots have been in and out of fashion ever since the seventies, depending only on who you listen to, the Princess pulled off the look brilliantly.
The lovely touch of expressive black, provided by the extravagance of her jacket and the trim details of her shoes and clutch, added exquisite detail to the stylish theme she sported.
The Public’s Favorite Lady in Pink
Somewhere there is an unwritten rule that states no girl’s wardrobe is complete without a few numbers of pastel pinks and purples. This dress of the Princess of Wales has been an all-time favorite adored by the public.
Worn on several occasions, this pastel pink dress has never been a disappointment, and always seems flattering on the Princess’ shapely figure. Enough to make any girl green with envy, this elegant dress is one of Kate’s most beautiful wardrobe pieces.
High Elegance At Its Finest
It is commonly believed that blue is a masculine color, but with the correct styling, it can be a flattering color for the softer gender, as proven here by Kate Middleton. With beautifully detailed patterning and design, made from a soft silky material, this dress is uniquely beautiful.
Another fine choice by the stylish princess of Great Britain. How the color flatters her skin tone and accentuates her natural beauty is exquisitely admirable. Certainly an expression of high elegance at its finest.
Hitting the Red Carpet
The Princess of Wales appeared on the red carpet at the premiere of A Street Cat Named Bob in London, in support of the charity Action on Addiction, of which she is patron. She stunned in a white gown that featured a floral crochet bodice and a pleated skirt with a high-slit.
Kate accessorized with a red clutch bag, black suede pumps, and a remembrance poppy pin. Despite being a chilly November evening in London, The Princess looked fresh and summery.
First Official Trip
The Princess made an appearance at the National Football Museum in Manchester, England, with Prince William in a sophisticated blue-and-pink checkered Erdem coat, pairing the cover-up with a black lace blouse, a pair of navy blue suede pumps, a small black clutch, and gold-and-pearl earrings. The pair started their day at The National Football Museum.
Upon arriving they met some local schoolchildren who were having some early Halloween fun. Fun fact: This was the couple’s first official trip to the city together!
Blushing in Pink
Kate Middleton looked pretty in blush pink for a royal visit to Cornwall, where she and Prince William took the day for a set of programs and engagements at several local youth organizations within the coastal county.
The Princess looked radiant and was beaming from ear to ear in a pale pink fit-and-flare dress by Lela Rose and a summery pair of Monsoon espadrille wedges, wearing her hair in loose, wavy locks and kept her makeup on the natural side.
Kate Middleton has once again raised the stakes on the courtside style as she took to the Wimbledon final from the Royal Box wearing Alexander McQueen. The skull, lipstick, and butterfly print dress was a different look for Kate, but she wore it well.
The printed number is adorned with butterflies, hummingbirds, lips, and lipsticks, as well as the signature McQueen skull. She completed her ladylike look with her LK Bennett Natalie box clutch and delicate gold charm earrings.
The Princess once again made a statement at Wimbledon – and she didn’t disappoint. She was wearing a recycled yellow Roksanda dress accessorized with nude pointy pumps. With her brunette hair worn down in billowing waves, it was another winning look from the Princess, who has been stepping out in several high-fashion ensembles in recent weeks.
She had previously worn the eye-catching bright yellow and white block design when she arrived in Sydney on her royal tour of Australia in April 2014.
King Charles’ Coronation
On May 6th, 2023, former-Prince Charles became King. Unsurprisingly, Kate Middleton attended the coronation. Even less surprising was the fact that she looked fabulous! The Princess of Wales donned a royal blue cape “at the request of the King and Queen,” a Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen headpiece, and the late Princess Diana’s pearl earrings.
The earrings weren’t Middleton’s only homage, though. The Princess also wore Elizabeth II’s George VI Festoon diamond necklace, which was made in 1950.
Being middle class bears different meanings to different people. We’ve sourced meme-worthy content from social media — plus Instagram account @MiddleClassFancy is here to show you all what it’s like! Get ready to be entertained!
Nobody’s Forgotten, Dennis
Dennis got banned from a bar in 1973 and, for 30 years, kept away from the place. After three decades had passed, he gathered the courage and told himself that people had probably forgotten the incident. With much hope, he entered the bar only to hear the words, “Get out of here Dennis!” What horrible crime did Dennis commit?
What Was So Wrong?
Mr. and Mrs. Shinseki definitely had a solid sense of humor. They knew that someday there would be someone who would remodel their old bathroom. Change is the law of nature after all, but they couldn’t let it pass without a few laughs.
The couple established how they did the remodeling in the summer of 1995. That’s a long time ago, so a revamp must have been necessary. However, they are also intrigued to know what was so wrong with the way they did it. Ha!
Happy Wife, Happy Life!
Marriage is a lot of things, and compromise is definitely one of the key elements. Honesty too plays an important role in keeping a healthy environment in any relationship. However, a few white lies never hurt anyone, especially one that is related to being able to eat at your favorite restaurant.
One woman shares one of the most ingenious ways she convinces her husband to go to a restaurant. In the end, the husband is happy about the discount while the wife is happy with the meal.
Don’t try to think too much about how the American financial and banking sector works because you will only end up confusing yourself. According to the bank, Kat cannot pay a mortgage of $950 monthly so she ends up having to pay $1,400 per month plus utilities in the rent.
Mortgages and loans are counted based on credit score, so that might have an impact on the final decision. However, it still doesn’t seem to add up. You’re not the only one who finds it fishy.
Counting His Blessings
Starting a new business is stressful. Often entrepreneurs feel like surrendering when they cannot cope with the unending stress and piling demands. This is when you look at life like Jonathan Warrington does.
He has titled himself “employee of the month” for his hard work. Keep in mind, he is the only employee. He even rewarded himself with an all-expense-paid trip to Arkansas. Take pride in your own victories because no one else will do it. Jonathan, keep going!
A Total Thrill
With age comes wisdom, and the revelation that you don’t need to pace around doing 24 things at the same time. People simply assume that the life of an elderly person slows down once they’re done with their youth.
Simon Holland is there to prove them wrong. According to him, when you’re older, you start to look at events from a new perspective. For example, he finds seeing hummingbirds to be a precious sight.
Pumping Up the Resume
Companies always have the wildest requirements for their open positions. They want a fresh graduate with at least 10 years of experience in the industry, fluent in six languages, and okay to work 12 hours a day for little money.
No wonder why people in the workforce have to come with unique ways to show their abilities and compete nowadays. What ends up happening is that we over-embellish ourselves to land the job.
Check My Ride
Investing in a car is a big deal, especially when you’re not earning a boatload of cash. It’s possible that you had to save up for years for the car of your dreams, put in extra hours at work, and even sacrifice the occasional trip or two.
So, if you don’t stare at your new car for at least 15-20 minutes after parking it outside your place, it isn’t the one! Look at this man here. Calm, collected and cool, while casually standing there with a bag of chips.
The obsessive, all-consuming need to pack every single item in the house when going for a trip, even if it’s for two days, haunts a lot of us. After all, who’s to say that you won’t need the ridiculously expensive suit you bought for your sister’s wedding on a vacation to the Bahamas?
You can live off four to five items when you’re at home, but the moment you start planning to go out anywhere, it’s a different ball game. To be on the safe side, just take six French Horns, Michael.
They Hated Twinning
Matching clothes is a great way to show your admiration for another person, but it doesn’t always work positively. Take a look at this father-son duo who cannot believe that they showed up in the exact same outfit to dinner.
The father complained about how the son had knowingly copied him… What’s funny is how they didn’t want anyone to see them like this but ended up on the internet for the world to laugh over.
A Rather Simple Formula
Drowning in student loans and mortgages, millennials are definitely not having it good on this earth. However, Andrew Nadeau’s foolproof formula will help free you from these problems.
Follow his footsteps: ditch Starbucks, get the bus, shop in the discount sections, and get the cheap version of Hulu. Most importantly, make your parents pay off your loans and mortgage because “you’re their special child” for a happy life.
All the Rage
If you’re a Gen-Z child, you probably didn’t know about JNCO jeans until 2021. With time, trends go in and out of fashion. Fortunately, retro and vintage are making a comeback. Zach Kornfeld had the last laugh with his mother on their little bet.
After being forced to buy her son a pair of baggy jeans in 1998, she said he had to take pictures of himself in them to prove to his future self that it was a stupid decision. Guess what’s all the rage now? JNCO jeans.
Time to Get Cozy
Interestingly enough, if a bar or gym is advertised as “Open 24 hours,” it doesn’t necessarily mean that they will be open 24/7. If there is a lack of customers periodically, they will tend to shut down operations after a certain hour of the night.
While one man was busy swimming laps, the operator of his gym locked the doors and left. The man tried to get in touch with his wife for help but she couldn’t be more unbothered. At least he is smiling in the pictures, right?
What’s New in Oreoville?
The food scientists and creative team at Cadbury are truly smart people. We would like to know how their minds work when they decide on new flavors for Oreo.
While the classic vanilla is a cult favorite, there have also been eccentric flavors like wasabi, Swedish Fish, hot chicken wings, candy corn, kettle corn, and more. Middle-class grocery shopping is essentially just looking into the aisles to see what new weird flavor of Oreo has been added.
No Avo, No Problem!
It wasn’t until financially savvy minds on the internet came through with a breakdown of our unnecessary spendings, did we know how much someone could spend on coffee. If you spend $5 on Starbucks five times a week, you spend $1,200 on coffee yearly…
A couple finally discovered the path to financial freedom. Stop spending $30 on avocados every week and make your coffee at home. Soon you will be richer than you ever imagined!
A big part of growing up in the middle class is only being able to dream about the incredible cuisines the elite can eat. Think of wagyu beef, lobster, caviar, and truffles. For the most part, it’s about convincing yourself that you can live without tasting such delicacies or traveling around the world.
It’s funny how a few fancy modifications can change your perspective. Why settle for regular, cold hard-boiled eggs when you can have devilled ones? They’re the same eggs but the yolk is mixed with herbs and spices.
The New Craze
Sushi is for the rich. Well, unless you go to one of those divvy and old Japanese restaurants in town where you’ll probably get food poisoning in the process. So, Matt here decided to use his little work budget and get creative.
Introducing midwest sushi — a.k.a chicken sausage with cornmeal tempura. While nothing about this dish reminds us of sushi, it sure does look delicious. After all, it’s just cut-up hotdogs, right?
Culture in Question
If there’s anything 2020 and 2021 have taught us, it’s that the world’s corporate sector can function just as well, in some cases more efficiently, from home. Employees reported fewer instances of burnout and productivity increased.
However, as the condition improves worldwide, people are reverting to in-person offices. Some companies have the funniest excuses for calling employees back to work. After all, it’s so important to be sitting in a cubicle staring at a screen for eight hours a day.
A Normal Name
Nowadays, if you meet a young person with a name like John or Mary, it’s almost exciting. We’re in this hip generation where the weirder you can make your kid’s name, the better. For example, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter Apple.
Then, the world watched as Kim Kardashian and Kanye chose the names North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. And if that wasn’t out there enough, Elon Musk and Grimes named their baby X Æ A-12. Yes, just let that last one sink in.
Never Settle for Less
Another big part of being middle class is wanting to get your money’s worth on every occasion. Because you don’t earn six digits yearly, you then cannot afford the trickery you get served on daily. For example, restaurants lying about the size of their portions.
This name trusted his gut and sure enough, he was right. He’s now on a mission to measure and weigh every meal he purchases. Truth be told, after this shocking discovery, we can’t really blame him.
Trash Can Hide & Seek
In middle-class homes, everything can be found at an arm’s length. You don’t have a lot of space, to begin with, so it’s easy to remember what goes where. But, go to a fancier house and all of a sudden things take a drastic turn.
After you’re done admiring the beauty of the place, you will be faced with the very important question: Where is the trash can? Is it in the kitchen? Are the homeowners rich enough to have a separate room just to store one trash can?
Why does eating healthier cost so much more than eating junk food? And then the flawed system has the audacity to charge people for health-related problems. Annoyed with the raging prices of organic vegetables, some decide to try their hand at gardening.
What they don’t know is that what appears to be sunshine and rainbows, is an expensive hobby in disguise. You’ll soon realize that you spent much more tending to your vegetable garden than what you would spend on a month’s vegetables.
At Least She Liked It
David Dunkovich must never share this secret with anyone else, except maybe the lady when she asks for the recipe. This is a perfect example of how some mistakes generate good results. He mistakenly served an elderly woman a spinach artichoke dip thinking it was broccoli and cheddar soup.
You would expect the woman to complain immediately. The taste and texture of those dishes are wildly apart. However, to his surprise, she loved it. He will keep this a secret forever.
The Restricted Zone
Remember having a computer room? Kids born between the early 1990s and 2000s can probably relate to this. Kids were not allowed there without any purpose as the computer was expensive and often there were important documents filed next to it.
With the development of technology and the progress of mindsets, this room became a thing of the past. Now people carry their work on the go with laptops and phones.
Just Get Vaccinated
Although this should not have to be said again, we will reiterate for the purpose of sharing information. The government is not injecting microchips into your body through the vaccine.
They have many more ways to do that (which you didn’t hear from us but probably knew), so stop being so terrified of something that will save your life and many others. Be like Jim. Jim is ready to inhale a whole iPod Nano if that means being able to return to his normal shenanigans.
Read the Room
Olive Garden is suitable for a wide range of events — a hangout with your friends, going for a quick bite with the fam, or having a lazy lunch with your colleagues. However, no amount of experience will save a waitress from the embarrassment she faces when a man proposes on Valentine’s Day there.
Men, it’s fine if your budget is limited. There are 200 other places you can go to pop the question. Why not over a romantic picnic in the park? Although cliché it’s still better than Olive Garden.
Just Keep Swimming
In life, all middle-class folks are clowns. Neither in the privileged section nor in the lowest one, middle-class people tend to be the butt of all jokes. You delude yourself by saying things will get better if you work hard.
As you “climb” the corporate ladder, you go above and beyond your line of duty, hoping your superiors will notice. As much as we hate to pop your bubble, this ladder is a hoax and everyone on it is stationary despite moving. It’s all an intricate web of deceit.
Congratulations, You Got Played
We all played games growing up – the tag and skip rope kind, not the one where you mentally destroy someone. Many miss the comfort of their childhood. You’d be happy to know that the games never stopped. The only difference is that you played yourself, nobody else.
Grind culture is so toxic that it has normalized unhealthy work tendencies, messed up our work-life balance, and driven people to the edge of mental and physical fatigue. When you are proud of the “grind,” you’re still showing your allegiance to the exploiter.
Money Doesn’t Matter
It’s all very well for rich people to say that money isn’t everything. They have more than enough of it to not have to stress. But for the average person, most decisions in life are affected by the revenue or lack of it.
As shown in this meme, it’s a similar concept to a particularly beautiful person acting as if looks don’t mean anything. Easy for you to say, gorgeous! Sometimes it’s better for the rich and good-looking to just say less, right?
Middle-class dads are a whole new level of uniqueness. They don’t seem to care about anything, despite how serious it may seem. A hive on the roof? No worries, just hand them a shovel and they’re ready to take it on.
Do you want to build a pool in the backyard? They are probably equipped for that. There is a hurricane coming but who cares about a little strong wind, right? They will stand outside waiting for a natural disaster to hit like a real tough guy.
Please Rethink This
This decade started with people hellbent on coming up with the worst baby names ever. It’s like they’re competing to win the title of “Worst names ever given to babies by stupid parents.” After this couple had a baby, a well-wisher congratulated them.
They asked what name they had decided on and the couple’s plan caught them off guard. Why would you want your child to be named after ammunition? Can they not hear themselves or are they simply tone deaf?
Monday Blues Continue
With the pandemic taking over the world, working remotely became the new norm. But as things start to get better (so we hope), we are returning to how things were before.
As an employee, you might prefer to work at home but you also don’t have that much say. Welcome to the real world, folks! If your manager tells you to jump, it’s essentially your job to ask how high.
The Karen Interior
Interior decoration is a very personal thing. Your own style is reflected in the way you design your home. Minimalism has become very popular these days. Monochrome shades, clean lines, rustic themes — nothing speaks more of a contemporary home than these.
However, how many decorations and motivational quotes on your wall can be considered too much? Surely less is more? For some reason, middle-class households respond better to clutter and hoarding. Don’t ask us for the psychology behind this!
Let’s Calm Down
What you call your grandparents is completely up to you. Some stick to generic names of “grandma” and “grandpa”, while “meemaw” and “pop-pop” have recently become popular. Again, don’t ask us why!
It’s concerning how the words have started getting more cryptic with time. You may not even realize someone is talking about their grandparents unless they specify it. Lovingly changing up your favorite person’s name is fine, but please don’t go overboard.
Have you ever noticed this about your school or college? The American education system is extremely diverse now, with people from all walks of life contributing to it. That being said, the English department is always the odd one out. It can also be termed “The Snow White Department.”
Generally filled with Caucasian women, English departments have recently started seeing changes. Why the all-White cast, you may ask? We’ll leave this up to discussion because we’re still scratching our heads about it.
That Time of the Year
With fall arriving, do you know what time it is? It’s time for Patagonia to be placing models turned influencers in random “aesthetic” locations snapping their photos. If you didn’t know, Patagonia is an American clothing brand that makes and markets outdoor fashion.
They claim their goal is to save the world. Their plan of action is flying all across the world and photographing influencers for this. Out of all the bad marketing techniques ever, this is probably one of the worst ones.
Grandfathers are truly the crown jewel of any family gathering or family group chat. Most likely Boomers, these men are tough as a rock and truly have no hecks to give about anyone. However, we all know that they are big ol’ softies inside.
In a family chat, this mother announces that their dog Harley has come down with something and needs to be taken to the vet. Naturally, two concerned texts from family members arise. Grandpa, failing to read the room, changes the subject.
All About the Hype
Let’s keep it real: restaurants are increasing their prices nowadays while decreasing portion sizes. You pay $30 for a bowl of noodles dipped in chicken soup garnished with chives. The worst part is that you’ll be hungry three hours later.
The typical overpriced BBQ place that has all the hype will also have uncomfortable metal barstools, serve you on a quartet sheet pan, add a newspaper tray liner underneath the food, and price two slices of average meat with a pickle for $20…
It’s beyond us why Gen Z-ers keep coming up with cooler and more hip terms for things that are fine the way they are. A PowerPoint slide is called that because it is usually made in Microsoft PowerPoint. Since when did we start calling it a Slide Deck?
It does somehow make sense because many are adopting Google Slides now, but it’s still unnecessary. How are we all supposed to know when things suddenly get renamed? We feel your pain, Simon!
Damned if You Do
You know that controversial saying, “Damned if you do and damned if you don’t?” Well, the same applies to your average employee when it comes to vacation days as this meme so accurately points out.
Your manager acts as if he cares about the fact that you still have free days to use but as soon as you ask to use them, they’ll be a problem. Why? Because workers are just meant to be worker bees and not have lives.
Peace and Tranquility
Did you know there is a term for people who are obsessed with candles? Yes, a candle parent. We too have been under the trance of those amazingly fragrant candles they fill Bath and Beyonds with.
It’s impossible to walk by one of these candle stores without wanting to buy one, but here’s the thing… Once you get one, there’s no going back. You’ll find it hard to stop and before you know it, you’ve spent $400 on candles that you barely use.
A Swell Dad Joke
We don’t think dad jokes are limited to middle-class dads only. Fathers of all ages and revenue brackets have a thing for cracking bad jokes. Want an example of what we mean? Just read the meme below!
If you read it and are still waiting for the punchline, we understand your frustration. However, if you were in this scenario with your dad, we do hope that you would muster up a fake laugh to make him happy.
It’s Spooky Season
With the arrival of Halloween on October 31st, everyone makes holiday preparations. It’s also the season where you have to defend your love for pumpkin spice latte. You can never have too much! Spooky decorations make Halloween the enjoyable festival it is.
Keep in mind that if the person outside can see where to enter the house, or the people inside can find a place to sit or have their back against the wall, you don’t have enough decor. It’s of utmost importance to clutter your walls.
The Perfect Meme
Work can get super monotonous and waking up early to get to a 6am meeting is not enjoyable for most of us. With that being said, this is when great managers step in to make the day better.
Whether it be allowing their employees to finish the day early or sending the perfect meme to get people laughing, some managers are more gifted than others. We hope Hector here realizes how funny his superior is but judging by his response, he doesn’t.
Sauce, Glorious Sauce!
The Civil War brings back stories of great pain and destruction. History bears proof of how severe the situation was. Yet somehow in the middle of all that fighting and chaos, someone thought that the most important thing the country could do with was steak sauce.
The UK saw the US going through it all and decided a good sauce would pair well with the drama. The sauce was launched in 1862 and immediately won hearts left and right. No wonder the war ended three years later!
