Though the queen's Platinum Jubilee, which offers up many an opportunity for a good outfit from Kate Middleton, is over, that doesn't mean that the Duchess of Cambridge is taking a break from the spotlight. Quite the opposite actually. Just over a week after the festivities ended, Middleton attended the Order of the Garter Service at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, where she wore yet another gorgeous, colorful ensemble. 

Dressed in a baby-blue coat-dress by Alexander McQueen, paired with a matching Juliette Millinery flower-embellished cap and Aquazzura pumps, the duchess looked every bit as glamorous as she always does. But while she's been known to wear varying shades of the color, this particular hue feels different than those in her regular rotation, which includes more jewel tones as well as dusty shades. Lighter and brighter than the rest, it's a perfect color for the season right now. So it's no wonder that when I went to check if any of the big-hitter retailers were selling it, I found it all over Zara and Mango. Coincidence? I think not.

Keep scrolling to shop the summer color that just got the Duchess of Cambridge's royal stamp of approval at Zara and Mango.
