Kate Middleton was sharply suited for the 2022 Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham, England today. The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the annual tournament with her husband Prince William and their 7-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte.
The multi-sport event, which debuted in 1930, celebrates the diversity, humanity, and skill of the 56 Commonwealth member states. Often referred to as the Friendly Games, the event aims to unite the nations and inspire athletes to compete in the spirit of friendship.
Middleton looked radiant at the event in a white Alexander McQueen suit. The elegant outfit consisted of a structured blazer that she wore with a white tank shirt. She teamed her tops with cropped trousers that were held up by a thick belt. To amp up her look, the mother-of-three accessorized with dainty earrings and a small silver necklace. She kept her makeup subtle and styled her signature brunette tresses in a bouncy blow out curls.
Prince William stayed true to a classic vibe for the event, pairing a navy blue suit jacket with a light blue button-down shirt, beige pants and brown shoes. Princess Charlotte looked adorable for the outing in a black and white striped Rachel Riley dress and white sandals.
Middleton completed her look with Camilla Elphick’s Alicia Taupe & Black Flats. Retailing for $260, the ‘Alicia’ slingback flats are made in gorgeous taupe and black calf leather. They feature a delicate cross stitch detail and new oversized pearl buckle – an update on the brand’s signature detailing.
The shoe choice is a departure from Middleton’s signature style at high-profile events — pointed-toe pumps. Her go-to pair is Gianvito Rossi’s 105 pumps, which she owns in five colors. In addition to her royal rotation of designer heels, the duchess also wears affordable sneakers from New Balance, Adidas, Superga and Zara.
