Cathy Cambridge Suits Up for Service in Alexander McQueen

Posted on October 12, 2020


Duchess Cathy is out fulfilling her royal duties in a surprisingly sharp little look. Cathy? Why don’t you explain a bit in that posh voice of yours:


Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of the Natural History Museum, will reveal this year’s winner of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year award at the competition’s first virtual awards ceremony, livestreamed from the heart of the Museum on Tuesday 13 October at 20.00 BST.

Her Royal Highness visited the Natural History Museum ahead of the online awards ceremony to prerecord the top-secret announcement in the iconic Hintze Hall. Patron of the Museum since April 2013, The Duchess of Cambridge praised Wildlife Photographer of the Year’s ability to connect people with the natural world through wonder and curiosity. Her Royal Highness will say, ‘The skill and creativity of this year’s images provide a moving and fascinating insight into the beauty and vulnerability of life on our planet’.

The Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year has been recognising the best nature and wildlife photography every year since 1965. Seen by millions of people around the world, the award-winning images inform and inspire through resonant stories about our planet and encourage people to protect it.


That’s all lovely, but can we talk about how amazing the Royal Hair is looking now that she’s no longer in lockdown? And while we’re being shallow, can we talk about how sharp this suit is?





She doesn’t wear pants suits all that often, largely because the demands of her role these days tend to bounce back and forth from casual day dresses to casual sporty looks. In the Before Times, you could count on more than a few formalwear pieces surfacing in her week-to-week duties, but in 2020, Cathy has had to do what so many other have: figure out just how the hell things work in this reality. As such, her casual day wear game has gotten markedly more interesting. We can’t recall ever seeing her in a black pantsuit, but the look is striking on her.
