Kate Middleton and Prince William subtly coordinated their outfits on Friday, June 17, as the royal couple made an appearance at the Royal Ascot races.


Making their debut at Ascot 2022, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a white and black polka dot gown from designer Alessandra Rich. This all-black and white outfit was a stunning look on the Duchess who looked lovely in her high-end look.

The Duchess also wore a wide-brimmed black hat which was decorated with delicate white flowers and perfectly contrasted Catherine's spotted dress.

Prince William opted to wear a three-piece suit with a top hat and a blue tie for a splash of color against the grey and black suit. 

In a subtle way of matching his wife, the Duke of Cambridge wore a small white flower on his jacket, which subtly matched the flowers on Kate's hat.

Members of the extended royal family have been attending the races for the past week and have made a number of stunning fashion choices. Camilla Parker Bowles wore a 'beautifully elegant' white dress for Royal Ascot and fans praised the Duchess for still looking chic despite the hot weather. 

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, stunned at Royal Ascot in her signature art deco brooch and eagle-eyed royal fans spotted this meaningful detail of Beatrice's Royal Ascot outfit.

Like Prince William, another member of the royal family made sure to match his outfit to his wife's look at the Royal Ascot races. The sweet fashion hack Mike Tindall uses to complement his wife Zara was revealed earlier in the week as fans spotted that Mike always wears a tie that coordinates with his wife's dress.

 It seems that this sweet fashion choice to coordinate with your wife is a hack Prince William picked up from Mike! A fabulous way to complement their partner's look without stealing the limelight.
