Kate Middleton and Prince William stepped in for Queen Elizabeth II at a recent garden party at Buckingham Palace, and her ensemble reminds us of another young aristocratic Brit: Eloise Bridgerton. On May 25, the Duchess of Cambridge rewore a custom dress made by her private dressmaker, featuring buttons, a high neck, and long sleeves that would work perfectly in Regency-era London. The Duchess accessorized the garment, which she previously wore in March 2019, with a floral fascinator, plain heels, a clutch purse, and matching earrings, all in mint green.
This isn’t the first time Middleton has worn a preloved item to a garden party this month. In keeping with her dedication to sustainable fashion, she recently stepped out in a coral dress accessorized with a vintage clutch on May 19.
While Kate Middleton is certainly not seeking a suitor—she has been married to Prince William since 2011—you cannot say that she does not look ready to promenade in this look.
All this to say, the pale pastel looks great on brunette Middleton, which might be why the shade is also a favorite of the most sarcastic Bridgerton daughter. To compare, here is Eloise in mint green at a garden party in season two of the Netflix series.
And here is another photo of Eloise in mint green and a mint green flower in her dark hair, just like Kate:
