The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge returned to Anglesey today to bid farewell to Search and Rescue (SAR) operations at RAF Valley. William and Kate lived in Anglesey for three years when Prince William served as an operational SAR pilot flying the now-retired Sea King helicopter.
The royal couple visited the base in North Wales to attend the SAR Force Disbandment Parade, which marked the end of more than 75 years of RAF SAR UK operations.
Following the ceremony, William and Kate attended the reception for current and former squadron members.
Duchess Kate looked lovely today wearing her long, fitted burgundy red LK Bennett 'Ami' coat.
The coat has been a favorite of Kate's since she debuted it in November 2011. This is now the fourth occasion Kate has donned the coat.
While I can't say for certain, Kate could be wearing the Whistles burgundy 'Sofie-Rae' dress under the coat. This is a pairing she debuted in 2011 during a visit to Denmark.
We also saw the return of some of her favorite accessories, including the Lock & Co Betty Boop pillbox hat and Mappin & Webb Empress earrings.
While I cannot say for certain due to lack of hi-res photos, I believe Kate wore her chocolate brown Cornelia James 'Imogen' pure wool gloves and carried the Emmy 'Natasha' suede clutch in the same shade.
Kate wore a "new" pair of brown suede pumps today. They have a mid-heel height with a classic pointed toe. This generic style has been difficult to identify from limited photos.
