The Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince William on the red carpet this evening for the British Academy Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards ceremony at Royal Albert Hall in London.
Kate looked dazzling in a new deep green Jenny Packham gown, fitting her pregnant figure beautifully. The style is similar to her ink blue Packham evening dress, replicating the splice front and empire waist accentuated with a black velvet ribbon.
The ribbon continues down the back of the dress and is topped with a bow. The portrait neckline extends to the back which features a scoop cut and exposed zip.
UPDATE (15 NOV 2018) - Jenny Packham has released the gown in a green shade as part of her Pre-Spring/Summer 2019 collection. The style is called 'Lucerne' and retails for £2,240.
Tonight we saw the return of the emerald and diamond jewelry set Kate first wore in 2014 for the St. Andrews University fundraiser at the Met in New York.
This evening the Duchess added a matching necklace and converted the drop earrings to studs. The origin of the set is unknown but they are believed to be a wedding gift.
Kate paired the gown with familiar accessories. She carried her black velvet Mascaró bow clutch and on her feet were her black Prada wavy cutout suede pumps.
Kate bucked the trend tonight and opted for a hue other than black in support of the 'Time's Up' campaign. She faced a sartorial dilemma this evening and regardless of what colour she wore she would have been criticized either way. In my opinion I think the Duchess made a subtle nod to the movement with her choice of a muted palette and black accents. Furthermore, she may have chosen the dark green tone in honour of the Suffragettes, who used the colour to represent hope. I think Kate found the middle ground tonight and got the balance right.
The Duchess of Cambridge was in Essex today to officially open a new, community-based treatment centre in her role as Patron of Action on Addiction.
The center provides nine-week treatment programs for those dealing with addiction. The Duchess was also there to promote the charity's new initiative called Clouds in the Community which aims to offer an effective alternative to residential treatment and an opportunity to provide services in more than one place.
Kate donned her favorite hue today, wearing the Goat 'Ellory' bow detail coat in Marine blue.
The piece is a new addition to her closet and features a high collar with a decorative bow at the neckline. Made in the UK from 100% wool, the $880 coat is designed with a concealed front fastenings on the front placket, and finished with diagonal front pockets.
Kate contrasted the vibrant blue with a black mini dress and black accessories. She carried her crocodile embossed Aspinal of London 'Blue Heart' clutch, and on her feet she wore her trusty Stuart Weitzman Power suede pumps.
Kate left her her down and tucked one side of her bouncy locks behind her ear to reveal the G. Collins Tanzanite earrings.
The final engagement of William and Kate's Nordic tour took place in the beautiful setting of Holmenkollen, the snowy hills that overlook the city of Oslo.
The Duke and Duchess, accompanied by Prince Haakon and Princess Mette-Marit, joined some of Norway's top ski jumpers at the top of the Holmenkollen Ski Jump - one of Oslo's most iconic landmarks.
The royal couple also got a better understanding how Norwegians embrace the outdoors in the coldest of temperatures, and champion the importance of exercise and wellbeing.
Kate stood out against the snow white backdrop in a 'spicy orange' ski jacket by Kjus. The specialist sportswear brand was founded by Lasse Kjus, a former World Cup alpine ski racer from Norway.
She wore the label's 'Duana' two-tone quilted shell down jacket (US$900) designed with a figure-hugging silhouette made from shell that's filled with warm down. This piece has a neck gaiter for extra coverage, and a detachable hood.
We saw the return of her black John Lewis Faux Fur Trim Suede Gloves and the Sorel 'Torino' boots. Kate first wore both pieces for the opening event of the tour in Stockholm.
Kate topped off her look with a winter white Barts 'Jasmin' beanie. The hand-knitted beanie combines a soft acrylic wool shell with a warm fleece lining to create a chunky knit feel, and it is finished with a pom-pom detail on top. It is currently available at Barts (€29.99), Blacks (£25.00), Ultimate Outdoors (£25.00), Amazon UK (£25.00), and Cotswold Outdoor (US$34.00),
Royal Tour Day 4, Norway: Kate teams plum Dolce & Gabbana coat with floral byTiMo frock on final day of royal visit
The final day of William and Kate's royal visit to Norway began at the Hartvig Nissen School, which was the location for the hugely successful Norwegian television programme Skam.
The Duke and Duchess, accompanied by The Crown Prince and Princess of Norway, meet the stars of Skam to hear more about the making of the drama series which highlights the many challenges teenagers can experience growing up. They also joined students and mental health support staff to chat about the impact of Skam, and the effect it had on bringing important issues out into the open.
Following the school visit, William and Kate enjoyed a private lunch with Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit and their labradoodle Muffins Kråkebolle at Skagum, their official residence.
The Duchess opted for a new plum coat from the Italian luxury fashion house of Dolce & Gabbana.
We've been unable to locate it in the plum colour so below we show it in black from FarFetch. Crafted of luxurious virgin wool, the design is characterised by its two line button fastening, classic collar, piqued shoulders and slim long sleeves, drawing in at the waist with darts and falling with a gentle flare to the knee. The coat is complete with two flap pockets, and a rear central vent. Originally retailing for US$2,675, the coat has now been marked down by 30% at FarFetch.
The only significant difference in the design between Kate's coat and the off-the-rack piece above are the buttons. Kate's are metallic compared with horn or plastic on the ready-to-wear version.
Beneath Kate's coat we got a glimpse of a floral pattered dress.
ID wizzard @HeavenQRF was quick to let us know that it was by Norwegian brand, byTiMo - a favorite of Crown Princess Mette-Marit. The Duchess wore the label's Lace Trimmed Shift Dress (US$295). It's a classic shift dress with an A-line shape, a high neck and elbow length sleeves.
It has an oval-heckled lace detailing on the collar, on the shoulders and on the waistline which you can see in more detail below. The dress has sold out on the byTiMo website but is still available in limited sizes from Tuckernuck.
Kate finished the look with the following familiar accessories:
