LONDON — It’s a white summer for the Duchess of Cambridge.
The royal couple have been on a sports marathon by supporting local teams. On Sunday, the duke attended the UEFA European Women’s Championship at Wembley stadium to watch England win their first major championship game since 1966 and the duchess lended a winning hand to the Great Britain SailGP team in a friendly Commonwealth race against New Zealand.
On the visit to the Sandwell Aquatics Centre in Birmingham, Middleton repurposed her 1,945 pounds suit for the hot English weather.
She first wore the suit in March during her Caribbean tour with her husband. The royal tour was not met with positive reactions.
The duchess re-wore the crisp ensemble to the unveiling of the National Windrush Monument in June on the 70th anniversary of the Windrush migration.
Alexander McQueen has become a reliable choice for Middleton when it comes to her more glamorous official duties, but since turning 40 in January, she has elevated her fashion approach by choosing to champion luxury British designers.
This summer she has worn London-based Serbian fashion designer Roksanda Ilinčić to the Wimbledon tennis championship’s women’s finals face-off between Ons Jabeur and Elena Rybakina; a white 1,352 pound dress from Emilia Wickstead to the Royal Charity Polo Cup in Windsor; and a white polka dot Alessandra Rich midi dress to the 2022 Royal Ascot.
As circular fashion becomes the industry’s new summer finding, with the likes of Jigsaw and & Other Stories joining the game, Middleton is proving that she understands the sartorial memo.
