Kate Middleton looked chic for today's Commonwealth Day Services.

The Princess of Wales wore an outfit from Erdem's pre-fall 2023 collection, with a matching peplum jacket and midi skirt. She wore a bright blue hat to finish the ensemble:

Kate accessorized with Princess Diana's sapphire and diamond double-drop earrings, which she previously wore for the first time at Trooping the Colour in 2022. She also wore the earrings upon her arrival to the United States for a three-day trip in Boston. The Princess of Wales has worn her late mother-in-law's jewelry numerous times over the years.

On her lapel, she wore Queen Alexandra's Three Feathers Brooch, which features the Prince of Wales feathers emblem. She first wore the brooch—made up of diamonds, emeralds, and rubies—at the first state visit of King Charles's reign in November 2022.

Past Princesses of Wales have worn the glamorous brooch, including Princess Diana and Queen Camilla. Diana often wore it as a pendant, and Camilla—though she never used the Princess of Wales title officially—wore it as a brooch. Kate looks to have removed the emerald pendant drop for today's outing, though in November, she wore it with the emerald.

This is her first Commonwealth Day Service as Princess of Wales, and the royal family's first major joint outing of 2023. King Charles is set to deliver a speech during the ceremony at Westminster Abbey today, a first for a monarch on Commonwealth Day.
