The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Stockholm yesterday evening ahead of their 4-day royal tour to Sweden and Norway. Kate and William arrived by private jet before being escorted to the British Ambassador’s residence where they will be staying for the duration of the Swedish leg of the official visit before flying on to Oslo later in the week.
We got a glimpse of Kate wearing her Mulberry Cerise Double Breasted Coat for the private arrival.
It has been one of her favorites during her pregnancies. She first wore it in New York at the September 11 Memorial & Museum in December 2014 while pregnant with Princess Charlotte. We saw the ensemble again a few moths later just before she went on maternity leave. She revived the coat earlier this month when she joined Prince William for a day trip to Coventry.
Today, Their Royal Highnesses kicked off the tour proper with a visit to the Vasaparken, an outdoor ice-skating venue in the city centre for a bandy hockey event.
Kate wrapped up warm in a new black shearling coat.
It is the Burberry'Tolladine' shearling trench coat (US$3,495). It features all of the heritage details of the brand's signature trench, including buckled cuffs, epaulettes and a storm flap. Crafted in Italy from black lamb shearling, this slightly loose style has a double-breasted front that can be cinched using the detachable belt, and a back vent for ease of movement.
Under the coat we got a glimpse of a Fair Isle jumper.
Kate paid homage to the host country by wearing the Övik Folk Knit Sweater (£135) by Swedish brand Fjallraven. The knitted woollen sweater features a pattern inspired by Nordic folklore. It is designed with a round neckline and ribbed sleeve cuffs and hem. Kate wears it in the 'Uncle Blue' colourway which is currently available at these leading retailers: Fjallraven, Amazon (US), and Amazon (UK).
Her hat is the Eugenia Kim Rain Faux-Fur Pompom Beanie Hat (US$275). The beanie has sold out but the fox-fur version is currently available at Harvey Nichols (£240) and on sale at Neiman Marcus for US$213 (down from US$285). With thanks to @PerthsFashion for the ID.
The eagle-eyed @PerthsFashion's also identified Kate's gloves. They are the John Lewis Women's Black Faux Fur Trim Suede Gloves (£42). The gloves have sold out in black but are still available in brown suede and on sale for £21.
Kate's scarf is the Brora Cashmere Fine Cable Snood in Bordeaux (ID by @RoyalNorway). Originally retailing for £135, it is now discounted to £89.
On her feet, the Duchess wore the Sorel 'Torino' boots (US$154) - with thanks to @HeavenQRF for the ID. The snow boots are currently available at these leading retailers: Net-a-Porter, Amazon, and My Theresa.
Kate finished the outfit with her $4,800 Asprey London 167 White Gold Earrings.
