Although Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 in April, a national service of thanksgiving was held in honor of her birthday on, fittingly, her husband Prince Philip's 95th birthday. The service took place on Friday morning at St. Paul's Cathedral and all of the royals gathered to celebrate, including, of course, Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a custom Catherine Walker coat dress in a pretty pastel blue, adorned with white lace. Her accessories, a clutch by L.K. Bennett and a pair of pointed pumps, were subtle and nude-colored, per usual. 

But what's a celebration without a festive fascinator? That's what we're all here for, right? The white hat worn by Middleton was created by milliner Jane Taylor, who's designed a number of headpieces for the Duchess. The rest of the royals in attendance also showed off their sartorial savvy to honor the Queen's special day. The designs were decked out in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and embellished with anything from feathers and lace to flowers and bows.
