Carole Middleton Wore A Blue Shantung Dress By Princess Diana's Designer Catherine Walker

Carole Middleton, Kate Middleton’s mother, had a last-minute dress change for the royal wedding this morning. After being rumored to wear Alice Temperley, Carole ended up choosing a Catherine Walker “sky blue wool crepe coat dress with matching satin piping and passementerie at the waist and cuff over a sky blue silk shantung Sydney’ day dress with short pleated sleeves and pleated pockets,” according to the official royal statement. Kate’s dress is expected to be replicated by bridal lines for seasons to come, and we can assume that Carole’s dress will do the same for Mother of the Brides, so snag this similar style now:

This Donna Vinci Couture Mother Of The Bride Suit ($309.99) is elegant and refined, and in a perfect light blue color just like Carole Middleton’s. You can also add the hat ($137.99) into the mix for an all-out royal look.
