This past week was one of the busiest on the royal calendar! Following the Queen's official birthday celebrations with Trooping the Colour, the royal family were back out the next day for the Patron's Lunch.
The engagements continued on Monday with the traditional Order of the Garter service.
William and Kate started Tuesday on a somber note with a visit to the US Embassy in London to pay their respects to the victims of the Orlando massacre.
Following their visit to the US Embassy, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge jetted off to Northern Ireland this afternoon for a garden party hosted by the region's Secretary of State.
Kate's week of engagements ended with a debut appearance at Royal Ascot.
22 June: William & Kate will attend the "Taste of Norfolk" gala in support of EACH.
WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
Kate debuted seven new pieces from her closet this week:
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week:
Daniella Helayel (the former creative director of ISSA) has unveiled her first exclusive collection for UK retailer MONSOON. The capsule edit features Issa's signature style for a fraction of the price! There's even a replica of Kate's iconic engagement dress! SHOP >
The colour of Kate's new suede by Gianvito Rossi has been a topic of debate in the Kate community. I've been in contact with Gianvito Rossi and they have confirmed that Kate wears their Gianvito 105 suede pumps in 'Praline'. This is the official name of the colour. However, stockists such as Net-a-Porter have renamed the shade in their description, hence the confusion. As I suspected, all the shoes below are actually the same hue! Variations in colour between the stock photos is expected because they would have been taken under different lighting conditions by different stockists.
Australian brand, Zimmermann has a new season update of their Roamer Day Dress! It is the 'Roza' Broderie Day Dress, available at Matches Fashion and Shopbop.
Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers. This week, Kate brought back a decade-old brocade coat by Day Birger et Mikkelsen. This motivated me to re-examine the label.
DAY BIRGER ET MIKKELSEN is the brainchild of Keld Mikkelsen, whose vision was to bring beautiful, ethnic influences from his world travels and merge them with Scandinavian simplicity, masculine tailoring and vintage inspired glamour. His collections are a luxe mix of beautiful basics and intricately embellished eveningwear.
I found many gorgeous styles in the current collection, and it makes me wonder why Kate hasn't revisited this Scandinavian brand? Below are some of my favorites:
The REISS sale started yesterday with up to 50% off online and in store. Kate's 'Rubik' coat has been discounted!
There are also SOOOO many Duchess-worthy styles on sale!
