Kate Middleton Revisits Her 2011 Alexander McQueen Gown For The Earthshot Prize Awards


Kate Middleton looked radiant as ever as she arrived for the Earthshot Prize Awards on Sunday evening, wearing a floor-length Alexander McQueen Gown for the occasion.

Whilst thousands have been waiting for this moment to see the reveal of what The Duchess of Cambridge would wear to this star-studded event, it’s clear to see it was worth the wait. The brunette beauty has history when it comes to re-wearing her famous looks and after ten years, she went back to the archives and dusted off her lilac goddess gown she first wore to the BAFTA black-tie event during her first-ever royal tour of Canada and the U.S in 2011.

Middleton wore the pleated number with minimal accessories, opting for just a pair of stud silver earrings and the matching clutch. She also showed off her tiny petite frame adding a belt with lilac embellishments while her hair was styled into loose waves over one shoulder.

As usual, Prince William was also on sight, walking the awards’ green carpet in a dark green velvet jacket, paired with a black turtleneck shirt and black pants.

The Duke of Cambridge in collaboration with The Royal Foundation announced the inaugural Earthshot Prize last year, offering £1 million to five different environmental activists and entrepreneurs towards their initiative, from a shortlist of fifteen nominees. As per the Duke, the conservation effort is the “prestigious global environmental prize in history.” 

There was also entertainment during the event with a star-studded list of performances, including Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, KSI, Yemi Alade, and Shawn Mendes; as a special part of the show.
