The coronation outfits of Catherine, Princess of Wales, have been a sight to behold across the entirety of the weekend of celebrations. From the striking cobalt Self-Portrait dress she wore to welcome world leaders to a pre-coronation reception held at Buckingham Palace on Friday evening to her stunning ivory Alexander McQueen gown and ceremonial robe she wore to the coronation itself on Saturday, Kate Middleton’s ensembles have been worthy of the history books they’ll no doubt grace the pages of. And tonight, as she, her husband, Prince William, their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and other members of the Royal Family join members of the public for a very special coronation concert held on the grounds of Windsor Castle, Kate has wowed us with her attire once again. This time, she was wearing the key colour trend of the season.
Princess Kate re-wears a daring red suit from Alexander McQueen to the coronation concert on Sunday evening.
For the evening, Princess Kate opted for a sleek, tailored suit in the daring colour that ruled the runways this season; saffron red. If it looks familiar to you, that’s because it is; Kate wore this Alexander McQueen set—consisting of an asymmetric hem jacket, wide-leg trousers, and a camisole in a co-ordinating hue—to launch her Shaping Us campaign in January 2023. Kate is known for re-wearing even her most iconic looks, so it should come as no surprise that she should turn to the reliable pieces once more.

Although striking, this red shade is largely considered classic amongst fashion experts, with it never truly going out of style. That said, it is enjoying a spike in popularity right now, as it features consistently across both spring/summer 2023 and autumn/winter 2023 designer collections. Now, it's popping up in almost every high-street store you can think of, too, from Zara to Mango.
