After a spate of greens and teals, Kate shocked me for one by wearing a colour we rarely see her in: pink. Another shade crossed of the list of colours I wanted to see Kate wear. The Duchess of Cambridge was at a lunch to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Along with Harry and hubby William, Kate attended the event with other senior royals and seemed relaxed, chatting with Prince Albert and wife Princess Charlene of Monaco.

And for the occasion, Kate wore a pink dress by New Zealand designer Emilia Wickstead - thanks to Victoria Murphy from the Mirror. And the Daily Mail's Rebecca English filled us in on the details via twitter, reporting that Emilia Wickstead says the Duchess of Cambridge's pink Alice coat dress is made-to-measure from current collection.

There's a few dresses from the designer's autumn winter collection which look like they could be the starting point for Kate's dress with the pleated bottom and fitted top of the ones above baring a resemblance. But there are plenty other pretty dresses on the designer's website that could have inspired the one Kate wore. The Duchess of Cambridge previously wore an Emilia Wickstead green coat to the St Patrick's Day Parade in March.

Kate wore the pink heels, which some Kate fashion fans think these are those Kate previously wore in 2008 to the wedding of Peter Philips and Autumn. Here's a picture below:

And she carried the pink Prada clutch we previously saw at the ARK charity event in 2011.
The event was held at Windsor Castle, and had a pretty regal guest list with some 24 Kings and Queens, one Emperor, an Empress, eight princesses,a Grand Duke, a Sultan and an Emir. Phew.
