Today, the Duchess of Cambridge brought some early Christmas cheer to seriously ill children and their parents at the Shooting Star House Children’s Hospice in Hampton, England. She viewed the facilities and met with volunteers. She spent time with the sick children and participated in the musical therapy and art classes. Kate also entertained the children with a hand puppet.
Catherine looked beautiful in a contemporary grey jacket from high-street label Reiss. The Reiss 'Delaney' coat is a collarless jacket with seam detailing, a flared fit, slit pockets, and fastens with a single concealed button. It retailed for £275 but has now sold out.
Kate styled the tailored coat with casual navy corduroy stretch skinny jeans. These remain unidentified but they are believed to be from J Brand, one of Kate's favourite denim labels. She wore her pants tucked into adorable 'Neptune' wedge booties from Aquatalia. In the UK, these booties are also known as the Russell and Bromley New-Dry style. The suede weather-proof ankle boots are trimmed with rabbit fur and retail for US$450.
The Duchess accessorised her outfit with Kiki McDonough diamond and green amethyst earrings and a new necklace which 'My Small Obsessions' has confirmed is the 'Fortune Drop Necklace' by Mappin & Webb.

I have retired the "Bits and Bobs" section of the website and started a new segment title "Kate News" which is dedicated to the latest news and photos of the Duchess of Cambridge and her style.
