Duchess Kate looks lovely (again!) in white lace for Royal Ascot

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, turned to two of her favorites for the Royal Ascot Tuesday: Alexander McQueen, and lace. She joined her husband Prince William and several other members of the royal family to continue birthday celebrations for the Queen at one of Her Majesty's favorite horse races.

She wore a bespoke version of the Alexander McQueen floral lace mini dress (she lengthened the skirt, of course!) -- which is available in limited sizes at Harrods ($3,145.42) and FarFetch ($3,685). The dress features delicate pleats and a high neckline, with a skirt that has a little more flounce than we're used to seeing on Kate.

If this look seems at all familiar to you, well, it should! Kate attended Ascot last year for the first time ever, and she also wore white lace. Upon the first sighting of Kate's dress, some thought she was repeating last year's look.

Last year's dress, however, was Dolce & Gabbana, and retailed for a similar price to the McQueen. While also featuring a fairly high neckline, Kate's dress last year was a bit longer than this year's, and featured a frill on the bottom of the skirt just below her knee.

On the left, Kate in Dolce & Gabbana in 2016, on the right, in Alexander McQueen today.

Duchess of Cambridge at royal ascot in white lace

On trend with her aesthetic, the Duchess styled the look with nude accessories: her Gianvito Rossi suede pumps, which we're always impressed to see her rocking while walking through grass, and a nude clutch. She wore a gorgeous new fascinator, and her favorite earring style: pearls.

Click through above to see more from the British royal family's day at the races, and if you needed more proof that Kate loves lace -- see below all the times she's worn her favorite fabric (it all started with the Royal Wedding ...)
