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.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception at Buckingham Palace with other members of the royal family to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the investiture of the Prince of Wales.
Kate wore a new floaty frock in a pale mint hue. The Palace informed royal reporters the dress is by a private dressmaker.
A What Kate Wore (WKW) reader noted the similarity to a dress by Russian fashion designer, Ulyana Sergeenko but according to WKW's eagle eye there are some differences: the length of the cuffs, the number of buttons on the front, and the fabric weight of Kate's dress appears to be lighter.
The Duchess teamed the dress with a new pair of Emmy London pumps, the Rebecca Blush style ($550).
Kate carried her bespoke Alexander McQueen brocade clutch, first seen during the 2018 Trooping the Colour.
There are no clear pictures of Kate's earrings but it's believed she may have worn her aquamarine and diamond drops.
On day two of their visit to Northern Ireland, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent the day in Ballymena, meeting with organisations that are working to create a bright future for the next generation.
Kate stepped out in an all-blue ensemble today.
She debuted the Mulberry 'Ashleigh' virgin wool coat (£1,735) from the brand's Fall 2018 collection. The design is a reinterpretation of the iconic trench, featuring a removable shoulder cape, oversized collar and a belt to cinch the waist.
The Duchess also wore a new bespoke dress by Jenny Packham.
It is a simple sheath dress accented by navy blue velvet trim at the neckline, cuffs, and waist.
Today we saw the return of the Jimmy Choo 'Celeste S' Navy Suede Clutch and Rupert Sanderson Malory Navy Suede Pumps.
Kate finished off the the look with her beloved Sapphire & Diamond Oval Drop Earrings.
