Kate made a solid sartorial choice tonight, opting to recycle a piece worn in Los Angeles, rather than risk upstaging bride Zara Phillips at a party celebrating tomorrow’s nuptials. Ms. Phillips is marrying longtime love Mike Tindall tomorrow.

The Duchess wore the Diane von Furstenburg Maja dress in green silk again, her decision to remain low key keeps the attention where it should be, on Zara.  For those interested in the dress, it remains available in almost every size on the DVF site, selling at $398 USD.


It seems all of the young royals were at tonight’s cocktail reception, held aboard the Britannia. It looks like Kate also opted to bring out her Anya Hindmarch Maud clutch again, below we show it in Ivory silk.

The bag is available online in ivory for £275; here are two other occasions where Kate has carried the bespoke bag.
