Green coat for a spring setting! Kate Middleton chose a kelly green coat to attend the RHS Chelsea Flower Show at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London on Monday, May 23.
Dressing in theme as always, the Duchess of Cambridge, 34, donned the garden-appropriate Catherine Walker topper, cinched at the waist with a wide belt. (It’s a repeat from the duke and duchess’ trip to Australia in April 2014.) Middleton accessorized the style with nude pointed-toe pumps and a matching L. K. Bennett box clutch.
The mom of Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 12 months, was accompanied by her husband of five years, Prince William, who looked dapper in a midnight blue suit, teamed with a sky blue tie and lace-up shoes.
The pair were in attendance alongside many members of the royal family, including Prince Harry, Prince Philip and the woman of the hour, Queen Elizabeth II, whose 90th birthday was a focus of the show. The garden’s entryway featured a whimsical floral arch topped by HRH’s golden crown. Plus, one display featured a silhouette of the queen filled with flowers. And of course, there’s the newly minted Queen Elizabeth II pavilion, where the royals attended a private reception after visiting a stunning poppy display to honor Australian soldiers.
But the queen wasn’t the only lady to get a little attention! As it turns out, there is a new flower named after little Charlotte — the Princess Charlotte chrysanthemum, a baby-pink bud with green tips — and Kate, Will and Harry were taken to see it before the reception. Sales of the plant are set to benefit the East Anglia Children’s Hospice, of which the duchess is a patron.
