Catherine, Princess of Wales In Alexander McQueen Visits the Foundling Museum in London

Posted on May 25, 2023

Well, it definitely looks like Princess Cathy has entered her pink era, since this is the second time in a week she’s stepped out in an all-pink ensemble. Maybe she’s feeling the Barbiecore trend or maybe she’s doing what we suggested and embracing the more Disney-esque image of her role. Whatever the case, the Princess of Wales visited the Foundling Museum in London, of which she is a patron, to meet with parents and learn about the experiences of foster children in the care system, and her look was decidedly soft and profesh:


That belt is extremely Barbie, but we honestly kind of love it. Not to over-analyze, but it dispenses with the idea that she’s using a work suit the same way a working woman in a daily job would and leans into the idea that she’s a princess playing the part for the day. It just feels a bit more true somehow. A royal touch that doesn’t come off grandiose. In a lot of ways, this feels like the purest version of an updated Queen Elizabeth ensemble; a style tactic she’s been perfecting for years. Elizabeth wore these all-one-color ensembles and tended to favor softer pastels. She’d usually finish them off with an impressive royal brooch to keep things regal. That’s what that belt feels like. A touch of cosplay. She should do things like that more often.
