Alexander McQueen has served her well, but here the house more than serves, it bows down. Someone there has noticed that filmy plus flowy suit her athletic figure, and that white lights her complexion up like the night sky.

This dress calls back to two previous McQueens for Kate, the 2018 pink gown worn during the Norwegian visit, and the lilac gown worn at the 2011 BAFTAs.

The sophisticated shoulder detail, the significant jewels and soft updo, make the appearance more polished than 2011.Embed from Getty Images
As the entire internet has already noted, she wore Diana’s Southsea pearl and diamond earrings, and the The Diamond Quatrefoil Bracelet, borrowed from her grandmother-in-law and first worn by the Duchess herself in November 2017.Embed from Getty Images
