The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham and started their day by attending the traditional Christmas service at St. Mary Magadelene's Church on the estate.
They joined Her Majesty the Queen and other members of the royal family including Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle for the traditional walk to the church.
The pregnant Duchess wore a festive green and red tartan coat - a new piece from Miu Miu.
The double-breasted peacoat has been expertly tailored in Italy from a luxurious wool-blend. Woven with a traditional tartan pattern, it has a velvet-trimmed notch collar, belted back and inverted pleat. It's fully lined and has a buttoned vent that can be adjusted for ease of movement. It has a retail price of £1,859
Kate donned a new Cossack style hat. It is reportedly by Peruvian Connection as confirmed by the brand on their Instagram page. The style is the Vallnord Alpaca Fur Hat in Black (US$99).
According to Cornelia James, the Duchess is wearing their black 'Alice' glove (£70) - a wrist length glove made in pure merino wool. This style has a velvet side bow and velvet fourchettes.
Kate coordinated the outfit with black accessories including Mulberry 'Bayswater' black suede clutch, and Tod's Black Suede Block Heel Pumps.
She finished the yuletide look with her Kiki McDonough 'Eden 'Diamond Flower and Citrine Drop Earrings which she first wore in June 2016 for a garden party in Northern Ireland.
The Duchess of Cambridge attended a performance of The Nutcracker last night at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. She visited in a private capacity but there were a few social media posts showing the Duchess after the ballet performance.
Kate was in the black Zara cape she wore to the Queen’s pre-Christmas luncheon at Buckingham Palace earlier in the day.
Under the cape we got a glimpse of the Alexander McQueen Petal Print Oversized Mini Dress which she was first spotted wearing last week for the annual staff Christmas party at the Beach Blanket Babylon bar last week. The dress is still available at Alexander McQueen, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Ave.
She teamed the pieces with a black knit cardigan, tights and booties. I will update the post if better resolution photos emerge.
The Cambridges' gathered with extended Royal family members today for the Queen's annual pre-Christmas luncheon at Buckingham Palace.
The lunch was a private family affair but photographers managed to get some snaps of the guests as they entered the gates of the Palace including Prince Harry and fiancée Meghan Markle.
The Duchess of Cambridge along with her royal tots, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were spotted en route to the Palace with Prince William behind the wheel and Nanny Maria in the back with the kids.
The Duchess teamed it with a black faux-fur collar. Kate M Cambridge suggested on Twitter that could be the Jigsaw ‘Faux Fur Tippet,’ however the piece is no longer available.
Kate wore a plum dress or top under the cape. It's most likely her Goat 'Eloise' Plum Tunic Dress which she recently debuted at the Place2Be School Leaders Forum last month.
Kate wore a familiar pair of statement chandelier earrings. The costume earrings date back to 2007 and she has worn them on a handful of occasions including the 2014 Christmas luncheon and during the 2016 royal tour of India.
We will see Kate again on Christmas Day when she joins Prince William and the extended royal family for a traditional church service at St. Mary Magadelene's Church on the Queen's Sandringham estate.
Kensington Palace released a new family portrait of the Cambridge clan this morning to mark the festive season. The image of William, Kate, George and Charlotte features on their Christmas card this year.
The family of four donned coordinated blue outfits for the photo. The Duchess wore her bespoke blue Catherine Walker skirt suit which she debuted for her first solo foreign trip to the Netherlands last year.
It appears Kate also wore her Ginavito Rossi praline suede 'Gianvito 105' pumps in the photo.
Kate's earrings are difficult to distinguish but they could be her Mappin & Webb Empress Drop Earrings.
The Daily Mail posted candid photos of the Duke and Duchess of leaving Beach Blanket Babylon, a swanky bar in Notting Hill after it was hired out by Kensington Palace for their annual staff Christmas party on Thursday evening.
Kate attended the festive bash wearing a black Alexander McQueen dress featuring petal and script motifs.
The stock photos offer a better look at Kate's Alexander McQueen Petal Print Oversized Mini Dress (US$2,045). The trapeze dress in 100% silk crepe de chine has an all-over petal print. It features soft gathering on the shoulder, three-quarter length sleeve with ruffled cuff and an asymmetrical ruffle detail on the hem. It is finished with keyhole button fastening at the back of the neck. The dress is currently available at Alexander McQueen, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Ave.
The print can be found throughout the 2018 Summer/Spring collection:
