The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the 1st Battalion Irish Guards at Cavalry Barracks in Hounslow today for the annual St. Patrick's Day parade.
Kate presented shamrocks to members of the regiment.
The Duchess also gave one to the Irish Guards mascot, Domhnall - an Irish wolfhound.
Kate was on point in a new custom green Alexander McQueen coat based off a military jacket from the designer's ready-to-wear collection. Thanks to @LadyParky79 for the information.
Here's a look at the back of the coat with peplum detail. It gives the illusion of separates.
The Duchess also donned a new hat, however the milliner is unknown.
Kate wore her dazzling Kiki McDonough 'Special Edition' Green Tourmaline, Green Amethyst and Diamond Earrings.
The look wouldn't be complete without the gold three-leaf shamrock brooch, pinned just above her sprig of shamrock. The piece belongs to the Irish Guards who loan it to Kate for the occasion.
And finally, a closer look at Kate's elegant up-do.
The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Portrait Gala last night at London's National Portrait Gallery in her role as Patron.
Kate has been Patron of the National Portrait Gallery since 2012, and this was the third fundraising Gala in her role as patron - the first was back in 2014, and again in 2017.
Kate stepped out in a new Alexander McQueen gown with a floral print identical to the custom gown she wore to the BAFTAs in 2017.
At first glance it appeared the original dress worn in 2017 had been reworked, and sleeves were added to the bodice. However, the brilliant Susan from What Kate Wore closely examined pictures of the two gowns and concluded they are different dresses because the print does not match up.
Kate teamed the patterned gown with her blackJimmy Choo 'Cosmic' suede platform pumps, and black Prada satin clutch with stone embellishment.
The Duchess topped off her dazzling look with the Kiki McDonough Special Editions Morganite Double Drop Earrings that were worn at Pippa’s wedding.
The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre today to see how Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP) are using the Parent and Infant Relationship Service (PAIRS) to support parents, carers and their children.
It was refreshing to see the Duchess step out in a blouse and trouser combination. She wore the Gucci pussy bow silk crepe blouse (£790) - available at Net-A-Porter, Nordstrom, and My Theresa.
The blouse is 100% silk satin georgette in a colour called ‘pale violet orchid.’ It features a relaxed silhouette, covered buttons on the back, and a high collar with a pussy bow. Kate wore the blouse backward as per stock photos and product description.
Kate teamed the blouse with her navy Jigsaw High Waisted Sport Luxe Trousers which she first wore in December 2018 for a trip to Cyprus.
She wore a new croc embossed belt which is unidentified.
Kate carried her Aspinal of London Lilac Small Croc Midi Mayfair Bag.
On her feet, Kate debuted a new pair on block heel pumps. @dataduchess2 suggests they are the Gianvito Rossi 'Piper' 85 suede pumps (US$695).
Today we saw the return of the much loved Links of London Hope Egg Earrings! It's been almost 7 years since we last saw Kate wear these earrings in public!
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined The Queen and senior members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey this afternoon for a multi-faith service to observe Commonwealth Day.
Commonwealth Day is a celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations held on the second Monday in March each year. The event is usually attended by the Queen in her role as Head of the Commonwealth. This year's Observance focused on the theme ‘A Connected Commonwealth’ – underlining the opportunities for the people, governments and institutions of this richly diverse family of nations to connect and work together at many levels through far-reaching and deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill.
The Duchess looked resplendent in her red Catherine Walker coat and matching slip dress.
The ensemble was a custom design for Kate back in 2014 when she wore it arriving in Wellington, New Zealand. It is based off of the designer's ‘Russian Greatcoat’ featuring a sharply tailored military design with a double-breasted front highlighted by eighteen metal buttons, a high colour, structured shoulders and a flared skirt.
Kate offset the vibrant red coatdress with grey suede accessorises by Emmy London. She carried the 'Natasha' Cinder & Gold clutch (£350).
On her feet were the 'Rebecca' cinder court shoes (£425).
Kate wore a new pair of diamond cluster earrings. Their provenance is unknown.
Also new was a red felt hat with a bow. The milliner is unknown.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent the afternoon in Blackpool to visit innovative projects focused on investment and regeneration, and to learn how the seaside resort is leading the way in tackling some of the social and mental health problems faced by people in Britain today.
Kate braved the rain on arrival and rugged up against the elements in her green Sportsmax coat.
The familiar piece has been worn on a number of occasions since its debut on Christmas Day in 2015.
Under the coat we got a glimpse of a new peacock print midi dress by Micheal Micheal Kors.
The jewel green dress features a classic collar, long sleeves, a front button fastening, a belted waist and a mid-calf length. It was sold at Coogles and Farfetch with a retail price of £225.
Other new pieces included a black scarf and suede gloves which remain unidentified.
The Duchess carried her green Manu Atelier Micro Bold Leather Top Handle Bag.
Kate wore black suede high heel boots, first seen at the RAF Christmas party at Kensington Palace. @MiddletonMaven suggests they could be an older style by Ralph Lauren. They look like a perfect match to me!
Today we saw the return of the Kiki Green Amethyst Cushion & Diamond Earrings.
The Duchess opted for a chic ponytail.
