According to the Daily Mail, “Kate arrived in a formal blue cape with an ivory dress under it that was designed by Alexander McQueen.”
“The dress was adorned with silver, floral embroidery that represented the four nations of the United Kingdom: roses for England; thistles for Scotland; shamrocks for Northern Ireland; and daffodils for Wales, which she was created princess of on September 9, 2022.”
Kate Middleton is a great example of female regal dignity. I have no idea what kind of a person she is privately, but the way she presents herself publicly is pretty close to archetypal perfection.

She also wore a white headpiece referred to as a floral crown, as well as “pearl and diamond earrings that belonged to Princess Diana … honoring her mother-in-law.”
She also paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth with her necklace, the George VI Festoon Necklace, that features three strands of diamonds.
The outlet reported that “King George gave the gift to Queen Elizabeth when she was still a princess.”
Kate’s choice of a “flower crown” had been speculated on for days. It was not a Coachella daisy and pansy affair, it was a delicate concoction of dazzling crystals, and her daughter wore a similar headpiece, made by Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen. According to British Vogue “The crowns are made of silver bullion and crystal with three-dimensional leaf embroidery.” It’s not the first time that Kate has chosen a floral theme, as she wore the Cartier Halo tiara for her wedding, and has worn the Lotus Flower tiara, on several occasions.
