The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Manchester today to attend the Children’s Global Media Summit.
The Summit brings together creatives, technology innovators, policymakers, executives and thought leaders from around the globe to inform and redesign the future of media for Generation U and explore the impact that digital technology will have in children's futures.
Kate arrived at the Manchester Central Convention Complex wearing the LK Bennett 'Delli' Check Coat (£495).
Cut from a fine black and white houndstooth weave in virgin wool, the coat is a new addition to Kate's closet. It features a high crew neckline, concealed button-down front and two useful flap pockets to the front that boast a military-inspired aesthetic. Falling to a mid-calf length, the detachable waist belt provides a flattering shaping accent. It is currently available at LK Bennett (UK) and John Lewis.
Kate took off her coat to reveal the Goat 'Elodie' Tunic Dress in Berry (£450.00)
Feminine and flattering the Elodie tunic dress in vibrant red has been intricately crafted with a pleat detail on the sleeves and a gathered funnel collar.
The Duchess has a penchant for Goat Fashion when she is expecting. This is the fourth time she has stepped out in a piece by the London fashion label during her pregnancy. Despite the fact that Goat isn’t a maternity clothing line, the brand's signature shift silhouettes are a good choice for anyone with a changing figure.
Kate teamed the outfit today with her Mulberry Bayswater Black Suede Clutch and Tod's Black Suede Block Heel Pumps.
The Duchess wore her Cornelia James 'Imogen' Black Merino Wool Glove (£70) on arrival.
She finished the look with her Mappin & Webb Empress Drop Earrings.
