Kate celebrates Prince Philip's 90th birthday


This morning Kate and the rest of The Royal Family attended a special service at Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel to mark Prince Philip's 90th birthday.


Once again, she shopped her closet and picked out the Jane Troughton blue brocade coat that she wore in 2009 for the wedding of friend Nicolas van Cutsem. The gorgeous coat has five small buttons at the waistband to hold it closed, accentuating Kate's slim waist.


However, for today's occasion, Kate wore a new blue hat, LK Bennett nude heels and a matching nude clutch to give it a whole new feel.



Under the pretty coat, she wore the blue Zara dress she picked for her helicopter departure from Buckingham Palace the day after her wedding.

Kate wore her hair in a half-up style as she did on her wedding day. Her trademark long dark locks were kept off her face while still hanging loose around her shoulders.

After the service Kate joined 750 guests for a canapĂ©-and-drinks reception at the Grand Reception room of St. George's Hall on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
