Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge, Wears Her Favourite Designer Alexander McQueen For Memorial Service In New Zealand

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, opted for her favourite designer as she and Prince William paid their respects to war veterans at a memorial service on day four of the Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia.

The young royal wore a military blue coat by Alexander McQueen to visit the town of Blenheim. It's the same British label she picked to design her stunning lace wedding dress and is a brand she has worn on so many official occasions.

Kate teamed her sky blue dress coat with navy suede courts and a matching clutch. She looked nothing but regal as she laid a wreath in the memory of New Zealanders who lost their lives in war.

She accessorised with statement earrings which matched her engagement ring - the very same prince Charles proposed to William's late mother Diana the Princess of Wales with in 1981 - perfectly.

It's been a blustery few days in New Zealand and while Kate's pillbox hat was almost knocked off her head as she, William and eight-month-old Prince George exited their plane in Monday, it seems the royal hairdresser decided to play it safe for this occasion.

The duchess' hairstylist, Amanda Cook, who has been paid to be on hand for the duration of the three-week trip around New Zealand and neighbouring Australia by Prince Charles, opted for a simple looped ponytail.

Baby Prince George was nowhere to be seen, we're guessing he was all tuckered out from his very first royal engagement the day before.

George and his parents had a hectic day on Wednesday as they attended a mass play date at Government House in Wellington... An event, which unsurprisingly produced a whole heap of adorable pictures.
