Magic in monochrome: Duchess Kate looks picture perfect for royal ceremony

The Duchess of Cambridge was a sight to see as she watched her husband Prince William parade down the walkway for a century-old royal ceremony on Monday afternoon at Windsor Castle.

The Duke of Cambridge honoured the Order of the Garter, one of the most senior and oldest order of knighthood in the U.K.

The 37-year-old looked dazzling in a ‘50s style white coat designed by Catherine Walker.

The frock costs AUD$450 and features a stunning black lace detail on the collar and curved panels, the Duchess choosing to pair it with an elegant Lock & Co hat.

Joining the Duchess to watch the proceedings was Queen Letizia of Spain, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex.  

Monday was proven to be a busy day for the Duchess of Cambridge. In addition to her attendance in Windsor, the royal also shared a special letter in support for Children’s Hospice Week this morning.

"Children’s hospices provide vital sanctuaries for those experiencing the very toughest of times. They help families and carers build lifelong memories that are poignant, happy and often filled with laughter," she wrote.

"They provide a lifeline to children and families for however long support is needed and I hope that others join me in thanking them as we shine a light on their work during Children's Hospice Week."
