Just hours after 'Trooping of the Colour,' Kate and her sister Pippa appeared at the wedding of Sam Waley Cohen and Bella Ballin. The wedding at St Michael & All Angels Church in Lambourn, Berks, capped off a busy day for the Duchess.
The groom reportedly played a crucial role in the relationship of Kate and Prince William, since Sam is credited with bringing the couple back together when they briefly split. Sam and Bella have been longtime friends of Kate and Wills
Kate turned heads in her monochrome summer dress. She accessorized it with a skinny black belt, black shoes and a black clutch. It seems that she, again shopped her closet.
Kate's black and white print dress with cap sleeves was seen previously. She wore it in 2007 when she was spotted at Boujis nightclub.
She choose to keep on her Ark & Co straw and feather hat that she had worn earlier in the day.
Her black shoes and black Anya Hindmarch’s 'Bespoke Maud' clutch (£275 but currently out of stock) were the same ones she used when she met Mr. and Mrs. Obama. http://www.anyahindmarch.com/
Here is the description of the clutch from the Anya Hindmarch website.
'A classically styled frame clutch available in a range of luxurious satin fabrics with embroidered initials. Features twist closure with stone embellishment and is fully suede lined.'
It is now confirmed that the designer of Kate's black and white satin dress is Zara.

'I am absolutely thrilled Kate chose it. It's a piece that I personally really love. I'm delighted, I really am. She looked stunning - she has such wonderful taste. She does seem to love our hats.'
