Kate Middleton Had a Serious Princess Moment Last Night

We love the fact that, over the last few years, the royals have had a serious rebranding, with Kate, Wills, Meghan and Harry modernising the age-old institution. However, we also can't deny that we're suckers for an old-school princess moment, and thankfully Kate Middleton has delivered plenty of them. 

Last night was one such instance: In the historic surroundings of the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Duchess stepped out in a floor-skimming Gucci gown, which featured an off-the-shoulder neckline, ombré-effect skirt and velvet belt. To complete the Cinderella moment, Kate accessorised with a Prada clutch and Oscar de la Renta heels.

Style Notes: Preen by Thornton Bregazzi was the brand of choice for Kate's Canadian visit. The vibrant hue and asymmetric cut make it a fashion-editor fave.

Style Notes: This is a classic Middleton princess moment. Jenny Packham has been Kate's go-to for much of her time as a royal, and this beaded look is so flattering on her athletic frame.

Style Notes: We told you. Kate loved this Jenny Packham gown so much that she's worn it out twice. We can't get enough of the nipped-in waist and teal colourway.

Style Notes: With a sweeping fringe and long sheer sleeves, it was all '70s vibes at the Bond Spectre premier.

Style Notes: Kate loves a cape, but this is no ordinary cape. Flowing, ivory and embellished with silver embroidery, this is a dress fit for a princess.

Style Notes: Another Jenny Packham number, but this time in soft lilac. The contrast between the floaty fabric and wide belt is perfection.

Style Notes: If this isn't a princess moment, then we don't know what is. Only Kate could pull off a dress with that much ruching.

Style Notes: We're spotting a theme here: Clearly powder blue is the duchess's gown colour of choice.

Style Notes: Last, but certainly not least, is that Alexander McQueen bridal gown. With its full skirt and lace sleeves, it made a nation instantly fall in love with the new princess.
