Kate Middleton's apparent modesty — she shops at stores like Banana Republic, she does her own grocery shopping, she doesn't have ladies in waiting — is what makes her so widely appealing. That modesty stretches to her wardrobe. As Duchess of Cambridge and wife to Prince William, Kate has increased her time in the public eye, and her polished, classic style is also in the spotlight. She could choose to be a clotheshorse and sport different outfits every outing, but we're seeing a refreshing sense of loyalty to things she loves. Case in point: this purple jacquard coat made an appearance in 2009 for a friend's wedding, she wore it again this weekend to celebrate Prince Phillip's 90th birthday. To boot, she paired it with the blue Zara dress she wore the day after her royal wedding! For a friend's wedding over the weekend, Kate chose a black fascinator to go with her black and white printed dress; it's the same fascinator she wore to the Trooping the Colour ceremony, marking Queen Elizabeth's birthday earlier in the day.
