Kate Middleton went for a striking off-white outfit as she joined the British royal family for Easter service.

The Duchess of Cambridge (35) looked demure in a muted cream coat, a white pleated skirt and her signature nude heels and pearl and diamond drop earrings for the service at St George's Chapel at Berkshire's Windsor Castle.

As usual, all eyes were on her and this time, not because of her famously lustrous hair, but rather the bizarre off-white silk pillbox hat she chose to finish off an otherwise elegant look.

While the British royals traditionally don headpieces for church services, her low bun adds years to her and is jarring with the rest of her impossibly polished ensemble.

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, wearing a belted trend coat, also opted for muted tones amid a sea of bright colours and even brighter fascinators.

There was no sign of Kate's children with husband Prince William, Prince George (three) and Princess Charlotte (one), who joined their parents and the Middleton family for Christmas service.

Last year, the young royals spent Easter with the Middletons are believed to be doing what many married couples do - dividing holidays between families.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry is currently in Toronto to visit his girlfriend Meghan Markle, who is believed to be preparing for an engagement after closing her lifestyle blog The Tig after three years and reportedly ending her role as a brand ambassador with a clothing company that specialises in leather.

"Despite the distance, the media attention and everything else, there’s a real ease to their relationship. It just works. They are deeply happy," a source told People.
