Kate Middleton’s Easter Outfits Through the Years: Custom Coats by Alexander McQueen, Catherine Walker and More


Last week, Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales returned to the spotlight after spending months recovering from surgery. The royal revealed that she has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

It’s unclear whether Middleton will attend Easter services this year along with the rest of the royal family, a long-standing tradition enjoyed by the late Queen Elizabeth II. Since marrying into the high-profile brood, the Princess of Wales has traveled to Windsor for church services at St. George’s Chapel.

As the holiday approaches, WWD looks back at all of Middleton’s Easter ensembles.

When they were still known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate embarked on a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand with their first son, Prince George. While attending a church service in Sydney, the Princess of Wales wore a pale blue funnel neck coat by Alexander McQueen, adding on a taupe suede clutch from the British label and matching L.K. Bennett pumps. She topped off her look with a ribbon-embellished headpiece.

In 2017, Middleton sported a cream coat that was custom-made by Catherine Walker, one of her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana’s favorite designers. Underneath, Middleton wore a pleated Whistles skirt, accessorizing with an Etui Bags envelope clutch and nude leather pumps by Rupert Sanderson. The Princess completed her ensemble with a satin pillbox hat from Lock & Co. and a pair of pearl earrings loaned from Queen Elizabeth II.
