Kate Middleton sticks to tradition as she wows in blue for Easter Sunday service

The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, looked beautiful as she arrived at the royal family’s Easter Sunday service at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, for the first Easter Sunday service without Queen Elizabeth II.

Kate stuck with her tradition of wearing blue to attend the service, as she donned a cobalt blue Catherine Walker coat dress with a matching hat and clutch bag for the occasion.

Kate typically opts for a blue ensemble each year to attend the Easter Sunday service and has been spotted in various hues of the colour over the years.

In 2014, Kate wore a light blue funnel neck coat by Alexander McQueen with a matching hat for the service during a royal tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2014, and last year she opted for a pastel blue Emilia Wickstead dress with a full skirt and oversized pleats.

This year is no different, as Kate arrived at the service wearing the Catherine Walker coat, which she has been spotted out and about in on a number of occasions over the years, most recently wearing it to attend Commonwealth Day in 2022.

Prince William and Kate’s children also wore various shades of blue for the service.

Prince Louis wore light blue shorts with a navy blazer and blue tie and his navy socks pulled up to his knees, whilst Prince George matched his dad, William, as they both wore a dark navy suit, with George wearing a light blue tie.

Princess Charlotte also stuck to the traditional blue theme, with a navy button down coat and blue tights.

Fashion expert and personal stylist Samantha Harman told The Express that royals often choose to wear blue because it’s a versatile colour that has been associated with the Royal Family since the 1800s when the name “royal blue” was first used.

Samantha says: “In colour psychology, blue is associated with trustworthiness,” and several members of the royal family, including Kate and Camilla, began wearing more blue when Queen Elizabeth II first stepped back from more public roles.

“It’s no coincidence that they’re wearing more blue – blue means stability and reliability.

“So, they’re conveying the message that the future is in safe hands,” Samantha explains.

Today’s ceremony will likely hold an extra special meaning for the family, as not only is it the first without Queen Elizabeth II, but the 1th century chapel where the service is taking place is her final resting place, with the family wearing blue as a sign of strength and unity.

King Charles, the Queen Consort, and other senior royals were also in attendance, with Charles and Camilla both opting to wear blue for the occasion too.
