On Nov. 24, 2017, Middleton stunned in a baby blue embellished Jenny Packham gown at the Royal Variety Performance at the Palladium Theatre in London. As E! News pointed out, on this particular evening, we could even see the beginning of the duchess’s baby bump.

Who can forget the outfit Kate wore to Pippa’s wedding? She wore a blush pink puff-sleeved dress by Alexander McQueen and nude pointed court shoes. The duchess topped off the ensemble with a fabulous hat fit for royalty and Kiki McDonough earrings.

She was easily considered one of the best dressed at the wedding.

3. Her visit to the Natural History Museum in July 2017

In July 2017, Middleton visited the Natural History Museum in London wearing a blue Preen dress by Thornton Bregazzi, black Prada sandals, and a purple Jerome Rousseau clutch.

Middleton is a Royal Patron of the Natural History Museum and was in attendance to celebrate the unveiling of the new whale skeleton named Hope in the Museum’s Hintze Hall.

4. Her trip to The Foundling Museum

On Nov. 28, 2017, Middleton visited The Foundling Museum to tour the facility and play with the nursery children. She looked absolutely adorable in a polk-a-dot, vintage-styled Kate Spade dress. She rounded out the outfit with some maroon suede pumps.

Middleton attended the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition at the Natural History Museum in London back in 2014 (it was the competition’s 50th anniversary). She presented the award to 9-year-old Carlos Naval.

She looked gorgeous in yet another pastel blue Jenny Packham dress and L.K. Bennett Agata bow sandals.

In December 2011, Middleton wore a very chic black velvet Alexander McQueen gown to The Sun‘s Military Awards in London.

“Kate’s black Alexander McQueen gown – the same designer as her wedding dress – had frill trim around the bust and a fishtail-style skirt,” said Daily Mail. “It was so long on the five-foot, 10-inch Duchess, that she had to keep hitching it up to keep it from scraping on the ground.”

7. Her poppy print Prada dress

In August 2017, Middleton wore a bright and cheery poppy print Prada dress with nude pumps to visit the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace to honor Princess Diana, just a day before the anniversary of her death. Middleton wore poppies as a symbol of remembrance.

“It’s most closely associated with Remembrance Day in the U.K., akin to Veteran’s Day, a November holiday commemorating those who died in WWI,” says USA Today.

8. Kate’s youthful Amanda Wakeley gown

In October 2011, Middleton wore a vintage Amanda Wakeley gown to a charity gala at Clarence House in London. The Huffington Post noted that the Duchess could be seen “glad-handing and preening in a gorgeous mint green (or is it seafoam?), empire-waist dress with sexy straps.”

She wore her hair half-up to show off a pair of gorgeous diamond earrings.

Light blue may be Kate’s go-to color, but she can definitely pull off a bright, passionate red as well. In April 2017, the Duchess wore a tight Armani skirt suit and beige Rupert Sanderson pumps to the opening of The Global Academy.

“The skirt set had a few sportswear influences, including a zippered front and dart detailing along the bodice, but the overall fit and finish was polished—a departure from previous suits by Luisa Spagnoli and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, which felt more military-inspired,” said Vogue.
