Prince William and Kate Middleton step out in style for close friends' wedding
30 MARCH 2014Prince William and Kate Middleton looked picture perfect as they stepped out to attend their close friends' wedding in Marshfield, Gloucestershire over the weekend.
The ever fashionable Kate chose a recycled outfit, donning a Whistles Bella blue and white floral dress she had worn at the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony. She wrapped up in a tweed coat by M Missoni, which showed off her svelte figure.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 32, had worn the design from the Italian label's 2010 collection for previous royal engagements — once during a tour of Fortnum and Mason with the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall, and another time on a visit to Nottingham for the Queen's Jubilee celebration.
As Kate was seen arriving at St. Mary's Church with her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry, the first-time mother smiled at the other guests and waiting cameramen. Kate completed her look with a navy hat, a suede Mulberry clutch and Cassandra Goad leaf-shaped earrings.
The Duchess left her trademark brunette locks loose over her shoulders and opted for simple, minimal makeup to accentuate her natural beauty.
Princes William, 31, and Harry, 29, coordinated in black jackets with tails, striped grey trousers and double breasted waistcoats, with Harry opting for a bright yellow number to match the spring weather.
The royal trio arrived together at the high-society wedding of close pals Lucy Meade and Charlie Budgett. The groom had played a starring role in William and Kate's own wedding back in April 2011, when Charlie was tasked with delivering the joint best man's speech.
The bride, meanwhile, has been a close family friend for years and her father Richard Meade is an Olympic gold medallist.
As expected, William and Kate had left baby George at home in London as they made the trip west. The Duke and Duchess are gearing up for their three-week tour to Australia and New Zealand, which starts on Monday 7 April.
The beautiful couple have just released a new family photo in time for the Duchess' first Mother's Day. William and Kate are pictured looking out of the window of their Kensington Palace home, holding tightly onto baby Prince George.
The adorable eight-month-old is seen beaming at the family pet Spaniel Lupo, who stares inquisitively back. The snapshot was taken by royal photographer Jason Bell, the man behind the official photos at George's christening last October.
