Kate Middleton Wearing an Easter-Egg-Blue Alexander McQueen Coat Dress
As a matter of fact, Middleton first wore the baby blue coat dress to Easter service five years ago while on a trip to Australia. With a subtle swap of the shoes (she wore ivory L.K. Bennett pumps in 2014), Kate breathed new life into the recycled designer piece.
During the holiday outing, Kate was joined by her extended royal family, including Princess Beatrice and her father Prince Andrew, and Mike and Zara Tindall — just to name a few. Noticeably missing was sister-in-law Meghan Markle, as Prince Harry went stag to the annual celebration.
As the royal team stepped out for church, Will and Harry pretty much ignored one another while walking in and out of the chapel. Instead, the Duke of Sussex kept close to his cousins Peter and Zara Phillips and their respective spouses, Autumn Phillips and Mike Tindall.
Harry and Will’s stiff public appearance is a stark contrast to the past, where Harry would be happy to third-wheel a royal outing with his brother and sister-in-law. In fact, Kate and Harry are reported to be so close that she’s thought to be the big sister he never had growing up. But a rumored feud between the two princes has seemingly affected Kate and Harry’s relationship, too.
After months of royal insiders speculating that there was a rift between Kate and Meghan, it turns out that it was actually Will and Harry who were fighting behind the scenes. “It’s actually that William and Harry have had a rift,” filmmaker Nick Bullen told Fox News. “All brothers fall out. All families fall out. Their fallout at the moment is becoming public.”
Bullen added: “These are two boys who lost their mother [Princess Diana] at a really early age, and the fairy tale is that they are closer than ever, and need each other, and I think that’s probably true, but equally they are two grown men in their 30s, starting their own families, different wives, they are moving to different parts of the country, different duties.”
Fingers crossed that Harry’s first child (and Will’s niece or nephew) will reunite the royal Fab Four. And hopefully next year we’ll see Meghan and Baby Sussex attending their first Easter service as royals.
