The Duke and Duchess were out and about early today to explore the Yukon, having stayed overnight in the territory capital of Whitehorse.
Kate was back in Team Canada colours, sporting a new red coat by Venezuelan-American fashion designer, Carolina Herrera - a designer first for the Duchess. For those of you who follow my other royal fashion blog Queen Letizia Style, you'll know that Carolina Herrera is one of the go-to designer's for the Queen of Spain. Coincidentally, yesterday Kate also wore the same Monica Vinader earrings as seen on Letizia. Is the Duchess getting style tips from the Spanish monarch!?
The double-breasted a-line coat is from the designer's CH Carolina Herrera Fall 2016 collection. It is made from a blend of double faced wool and cashmere. It is only available in flagship stores with a price tag of US$1,915 (thanks to @MiddletonMaven for the info).
Kate teamed the coat with a new pair of bordeaux Tod's fringed leather pumps (ID by @bojanana). They are an older style but still available and on sale in brown. The 4" covered heels have a supple leather upper with polished goldtone hardware. They feature an almond toe and fringe buckle detail at the vamp. They are finished with a signature pebbled rubber sole. They had a retail price of US$665.
The Duchess completed her outfit with a few familiar pieces. She carried her Maple Leaf tartan scarf from yesterday, and Mulberry 'Bayswater' clutch bag in cranberry suede. You may recall that Kate also owns this clutch in black suede and blush suede.
She wore her beloved Annoushka Pearl Drops and Kiki Diamond Hoop Earrings.
On her wrist, Kate wore her faithful Cartier Ballon Bleu Watch.
The first stop for the Duke & Duchess in Whitehorse was the MacBride Museum, a fixture in downtown Whitehorse since 1952. It showcases Yukon’s history with a focus on the role of Whitehorse in the development of the territory.
Inside the museum, the royal couple joined a story circle with local children and elders, who read a story book in the native Southern Tutchone language. The story was about a moose named William which Kate seemed to enjoy!
Following story time, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge participated in sending a "telegraph to tweet" – using an original telegraph to send a tweet.
And here's what they Twittered:
After the museum visit, William and Kate were greeted outside by Yukoners at a street party for the visiting couple.
William and Kate concluded their tour of Whitehorse at the Healing Totem.
Next up, the Duke and Duchess will make their way to the picturesque Carcross Commons and Montana Mountain.
