In this case, three is not a crowd. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton looked resplendent in a white dress at the royal christening of her youngest child, Prince Louis, held at the Chapel Royal at St. James’ Palace in London on Monday, July 9.
The Duchess stepped out in a white sleeved dress by Alexander McQueen, the same name behind her long-sleeve, lace wedding dress from her 2011 nuptials to Prince William. She accessorized her outfit with a hat by Jane Taylor. Kate has maintained her very own tradition at each of the christenings for her three children (Prince George, Princess Charlotte and now Louis) by wearing McQueen for all the outings.
Middleton also chose clean and crisp colors for the christenings of both George and Charlotte, opting for a sleek white coat dress for Charlotte’s christening in July 2015. For her eldest son’s christening in October 2013, the duchess selected a soft yellow, cream-color dress accented with a ruffle on the bodice.

That wasn’t the only wedding throwback brought forth by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday. Kensington Palace also announced this weekend that they will be serving slices of their wedding cake from 2011, directly in line with what they had also served at the christenings of George and Charlotte.
“Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give a private tea at Clarence House,” it read on the royal family website. “Guests will be served slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake.”
Meanwhile, both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined the family for the celebration on Monday, where they came across their wedding officiant, the Archbishop of Canterbury, for the first time since their May 19 nuptials. As the couple made their way into the chapel, the trio shared a laugh together as they warmly reunited.
