Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge does not disappoint, yet again!

For this afternoon's garden party at Buckingham Palace the Duchess of Cambridge brought back a much-loved frock. Kate was seen wearing the bespoke lace dress by Alexander McQueen admired by many fashion followers.

There was a special reason to commemorate the day, Prince Philip celebrated his 93rd birthday! Many readers will remember Kate's dress, first worn almost two years ago to the day for the Jubilee National Service of Thanksgiving held at St. Paul's Cathedral.

The hat was created specifically to coordinate with this dress. From Jane Corbett's blog:

So delighted to see HRH The Duchess of Cambridge wearing one of my hats at today's Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. The new hat was specifically designed to be worn with the beautiful Alexander McQueen lace dress that HRH has worn previously. How perfect to have summer sunshine for a Garden Party!

Kate accessorized with a pair of nude patent heels we've not previously seen. We will update as soon as we are certain of the brand and style. (Currently under discussion: Russell & Bromley's 'Power' heels by Stuart Weitzman and the 'Florete' pumps from LK Bennett.)
