Royal fans spot Kate Middletons nod to wedding with glam Coronation outfit

Eagle-eyed royal fans spotted think Kate Middleton paid homage to her bridal gown from 2011 with her glamorous Coronation outfit.

Kate Middleton, then the Duchess of Cambridge, wore a stunning Alexander McQueen dress for her wedding at Westminster Abbey to Prince William on April 29, 2011.

And just like that dress, the Princess of Wales' Coronation gown was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

Although the majority of Kate's Coronation gown was hidden underneath her robe of The Royal Victorian Order, there were floral motifs at the hem that were visible for royal fans to see, The Express reported.

These floral motifs were shamrocks, roses, thistles and daffodils, in order to represent Britain and Ireland's national flowers.

These motifs were sewn into the ivory dress using silver embroidery.

For many royal fans, this dress would have been seen as a throwback to the Princess of Wales's wedding dress, as it featured the exact same floral motifs along the hem.

Therefore, Kate's Coronation gown was certainly a full-circle moment from when she walked down the aisle in 2011.

Both events took place in Westminster Abbey which also contributed to the significance of the moment.

The Princess paired her dress with a Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen headpiece with three-dimensional leaf embroidery made of silver thread, crystal, and gold.

Princess Charlotte's cape dress was also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

Kate has worn Alexander McQueen during some of the most important events in her life as a royal, including her wedding and the christenings of her children.

Finally, with her pearl and diamond earrings, the Princess paid tribute to the late Princess Diana.

It was touching that Kate included jewellery worn by the late Princess of Wales so that she was incorporated into the ceremony in some way.
