Royal Jubilee: Kate Middleton's scarlet outfit was a 'safe choice'

Kate Middleton brought a splash of colour to the gloomy banks of the River Thames by wearing a vibrant scarlet dress to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee river pageant.

The Duchess of Cambridge stepped on to the Spirit of Chartwell wearing a vibrant scarlet dress by Alexander McQueen.

She topped of the stylish outfit with a stunning red hat by Sylvia Fletcher from royal milliner James Lock & Co but ensured that she did not steal the limelight from the Queen.

A fashion expert told the Daily Mail that the choice of outfit for the gala was a "vibrant but safe choice".

Carly Wood, who set up the katemiddletonstyle.org blog, told the publication: 'It immediately reminded me of Kate's all-red patriotic ensemble from Calgary, on her final day in Canada last year.

"I was assuming she'd go for red, white or blue today. I love that it's bright and vibrant and a nice contrast to the weather.

"It's a little safe in my opinion, but then I expected that."

She added: "It is after all the Queen's big day and the Queen should take centre stage - not Kate and her outfit."
