Kate Middleton -- she's just like Us

The Duchess of Cambridge attended a garden tea party at Buckingham Palace Tuesday wearing a pale pink dress she's styled before. Middleton, 30, recycled the Emilia Wickstead coat dress she wore to the Windsor Castle lunch on May 18. This time, however, she paired the dress with a matching Jane Corbett hat.

In Katie Couric's ABC special airing Tuesday, The Jubilee Queen, William admits it was "very difficult" getting married without his mother, Princess Diana, in attendance.

"I think she would have loved the day, and I think, hopefully, she'd be very proud," he says. "I'm just very sad that she's never going to get a chance to meet Kate."
