Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge helped brighten up Prince Philip’s birthday celebrations on Sunday.

At a service of thanksgiving marking his 90th, the new royal star sported an eye-catching azure blue Jacquard coat dress paired with a navy blue fascinator.

Kate also donned her trusty nude LK Bennett heels, which appear to be identical to the pair both her mother Carole and sister Pippa were wearing at the Goring Hotel Beach Party last week.

Extra credit is due to thrifty Kate for 'recycling' her coat – she wore it to the wedding of her husband’s close friend, Nicholas van Cutsem, in 2009, pictured above right.

But the stylish Duchess had some competition for best dressed from her in-laws in the pews of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Zara Phillips, whose fiancé Mike Tindall was on his stag do in Miami, looked smart in a military-style cream coat and black feather headwear with netting.

And Sophie Winkleman, the wife of Lord Freddy Windsor, turned heads in a wife-brim cream straw hat, beige structured jacket and white wrap dress.
