Kate Recycles Blue Coat for Tribute to Philip at 90


THE Duchess of Cambridge stole the show in a "recycled" blue coat at celebrations to mark the 90th birthday of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Kate looked stunning in a blue brocade coat she previously wore to a close friend's wedding.

Philip was commemorated before his family, friends and associates just a few days after reaching the personal milestone.

The ceremony was held the day after the Trooping the Colour ceremony at Buckingham Palace at which the Queen's official birthday was marked.

The Dean of Windsor, the Rt Rev David Conner, who gave the sermon in St George's Chapel at > Windsor Castle, made the congregation laugh when he told them the Duke "doesn't like to the praised". But he went on to insist that despite Philip not wanting to be the topic of conversation, praise was due for the royal who over more than six decades had been the Queen's tireless supporter and associated with or patron of more than 800 charities. The Dean's sermon had a light tone and he described the Queen's consort as "modest" and also mentioned the royal's service and faith. The service was a private event for more than 750 guests including senior members of the Royal Family, those associated with some of the Duke's interests - sailing, polo, carriage driving and shooting - along with foreign royals, members of the Mountbatten family, the Duke's godchildren and former and present staff from the royal household. The royals arrived for the service in a fleet of state limousines because of the heavy showers that deluged Windsor. Hiding from the downpours under umbrellas as they stepped from the cars were the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and the Duke of York with his daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. Other royals who braved the rain were the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal, her husband Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence, daughter Zara Phillips and son Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn. The children of Princess Margaret - Lord Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto-were also guests as were members of the Greek royal family, including King Constantine of Greece. Sophie Winkleman, who is married to Lord Freddie Windsor, the son of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, arrived with her in-laws but without her husband.
