Today, the Duchess of Cambridge made her first public appearance in more than two months. Catherine who is pregnant with her second child has been suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum for several weeks. She has been forced to cancel a number of engagements due to her illness. It appears Kate's condition is steadily improving and today she was well enough to join Prince William to greet The President of Singapore, Tony Tan Keng Yam and his wife at the Royal Garden Hotel in London on behalf of The Queen.
The Duchess wore a bespoke grey Prince of Wales plaid Alexander McQueen coat. The silhouette is trademark McQueen with its fitted bodice, structured shoulders and flared skirt. Other features include a peak lapel, concealed front fastening and slanted pockets.
The coat is based on this ready-to-wear Prince of Wales plaid box-pleat coat from the Alexander McQueen Pre-Spring Summer 2015 collection.
The Duchess accessorized with some familiar pieces. She coordinated the coat with her Jane Taylor 'Lupin' grey velour felt teardrop beret, first worn to the Easter Sunday church service in Sydney.
On her feet were Prada black suede round toe pumps which made their debut in December 2013 at the Nelson Mandela film premiere.
The black clutch bag she was carrying appears to be a new addition to her closet. Jenny Packham confirmed via Instagram that it is their 'Roxy' black suede clutch.
The AW14 'Roxy' clutch has a pleated, material design featuring a baguette cut, golden shadow Swarovski crystal clasp and a detachable long snake chain. It retails for £378.00
The Duchess recycled her jewellery pieces, wearing the Annoushka Pearl Drops & Kiki Diamond Hoop Earrings and Mappin & Webb Empress Mini White Gold & Diamond Pendant Necklace.
