Princess Kate and Princess Charlotte Wore Matching Coronation Tiaras and Dresses

Today the world’s gaze turns to London for the coronation of King Charles III and, whether you’re a royalist or not, May 6th 2023 will be a noteworthy date for the history books. It makes sense, then, that those in attendance would want to show up in serious style, what with all the photo documentation there will be of the event. Catherine, Princess of Wales? She’s no exception.

Last night Princess Kate, along with other senior members of the royal family, hosted a gathering for all of the world leaders who have flown in to attend the coronation, and if her outfit—a cobalt blue Self-Portrait dress with an elegant draped neckline—was anything to go by, we knew we'd be in for a treat. Naturally, Kate looked radiant as she stepped out of her car and onto the cobbles outside Westminster Abbey.

For the coronation, Kate looked every inch a royal princess. In her traditional regalia, which consisted of a floor-length blue cape, making it her signature colour for the coronation, underneath we can see but glimpses of what appears to be a sweeping white gown. In her hair she wears a stunning headpiece which is offset with stunning, pearl-drop earrings. Perfectly fitting for such a moment, wouldn't you agree?

The details of the Princess of Wales's coronation look are breathtaking.
