WOW, what a week it was! The royal tour of Canada was by far the most "adorable" of all the tours! With the Cambridge tots joining their parents on the eight-day visit, it made for wonderful family moments!
The tour was also jam-packed with fabulous fashion, and now that I've had time to recover and recharge the sleep bank, I thought it would be fun to examine and deconstruct Kate's tour wardrobe.
But, first things first ... I want to know what you thought was Kate's best look of the Royal Tour. Cast your vote below!
What Kate Packed for the Royal Tour
I've deconstructed Kate's outfits and tallied up what she wore on the tour:
Kate packed a total of 5 dresses for the tour of Canada, which is far less than the 14 she wore for the India/Bhutan royal visit in April this year. We saw a mix of bespoke designer dresses from her go-to designers and new and unexpected brands.
COATS & JACKETS
Given the mild-to-cool weather during the tour, it was no surprise Kate went heavy on coats and jackets. We saw a mix of 8 rain jackets, blazers and dress coats.
The Duchess wore 12 different pieces of jewellery during the tour, 9 of which were earrings. The maple leaf brooch, which she wore on three separate occasions during the tour was a borrowed piece from Queen Elizabeth II. She also loaned Her Majesty's diamond & stud pearl earrings. Kate championed local jewelers, wearing handmade earrings from Yukon-based silversmith Shelley MacDonald, and Canadian-born designer Pippa Small.
The Duchess packed 11 pairs of shoes and boots, 5 of which were new to her closet. Neutral and brown tones featured heavily, as well as rich red hues.
Half of the four clutches the Duchess showcased on tour were new additions to her closet. She favored red tones, a tribute to Canada's national colour.
Thank you to everybody who followed along during the tour! It's such an amazing community we have, and the long hours and late nights were worth it!
