The Cambridge family bade farewell to Poland this morning, and boarded a private jet bound for Berlin to begin the German element of the royal tour.
The Duchess wore a bespoke cornflower blue coat by British designer, Catherine Walker. The choice of colour was a nod to Germany where the cornflower is the country's national flower.
The design of the coat is very much like the red Catherine Walker number she wore during the Canadian royal tour in 2011.
Under the coat, Kate wore a tonal blue lace dress with a scalloped hem.
She carried a new clutch bag.
It is theJimmy Choo 'Vivien' clam satin clutch (US$995) - ID by @Perthsfashion. The body is softly gathered and embellished with Swarovski-studded hardware alongside a pale-gold tone metal base chain.
The bag is not available in Kate's colourway but is in stock in Black and Vintage Rose at Selfridges. It is also available in black from Neiman Marcus and Far Fetch.
On her feet were the Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Praline Suede Pumps.
Kate accessorized with her KIKI Blue Topaz and Diamond Drop Earrings, and today she added the coordinating KIKI Eden Blue Topaz Flower Necklace (£1,167). The new piece features a blue topaz flower surrounded by pave set diamonds in 18ct white gold.
Kate completed the ensemble with her trusty Cartier Ballon Bleu Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
A closer look at Kate's glamorous up-do.
William and Kate's first engagement in Germany was a private meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Following this the Duke and Duchess visited the Brandenburg Gate - Berlin’s most famous landmark and a symbol of German unification.
The Royal couple greeted the crowds that had gathered on Pariser Platz in front of the Gate, before making their way to the Holocaust Memorial.
Here they toured the museum before walking through the Field of Stelae.
In the afternoon, the Duke and Duchess travelled to the eastern district of Marzahn. They visited Strassenkinder, a charity which supports young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Royal couple will then return to the west of the city, and meet with President Steinmeier at the Bellevue Palace for afternoon tea.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge concluded their first day in Germany with the Queen's Birthday Party at the Ambassador's residence in Berlin.
As anticipated, Kate made a wardrobe change. She arrived for the party in a red off-the-shoulder dress by Alexander McQueen (£2,075) - ID by @RegalRepliKate on Twitter.
The floor-length gown with ruffled hem is from McQueen's Spring '17 collection. Its inspiration comes from the beautiful landscapes and folkloric history of the Shetland Islands. Crafted from cotton and silk-blend chiffon with a crinkled finish, this vivid red dress is shirred along the off-the-shoulder neckline and waist.
The dress is also available in pink at StyleBop where it is reduced to €831.
Kate debuted a pair of red Simone Rocha crystal earrings (£195) - ID by @heavenQRF on Twitter.
Kate’s earrings are sold out in red, but they’re still available in black and transparent perspex. Simone Rocha also offers a similar design in red:
On her feet were a new pair of taupe suede sandals with scalloped straps.
They are likely to be one of these styles by Prada.
ID UPDATE (20 Jul 2017)
The Duchess stepped out in the shoes again on her final night in Germany and we can clearly see they are the ankle strap pair.
And that concludes day three!
The second day of the Royal Visit to Poland started on a sombre note with a trip to the former Nazi Germany Concentration Camp in Stutthof. During WWII up to 110,000 people – men, women and children – from 28 countries were imprisoned in Stutthof, of whom as many as 65,000, including 28,000 Jews, died.
During their visit, William and Kate met former prisoners of the camp.
There was a change in mood for their second stop of the day. William and Kate traveled to Gdansk, a handsome port city located on Poland’s northern Baltic coastline, famous for its amber.
In the central market square the Duke and Duchess joined a street party where they where offered Goldwasser - a Gdansk liqueur, and traditional Polish pierogi, while watching amber craftsmen at work, and listening to local musicians and artists who will contribute to the festive feeling.
Then it was on to the Gdansk Shakespeare theatre - home to the city’s annual Shakespeare festival, attended by theatre-lovers from around the world. During the seventeenth century there was a large English-speaking community based in Gdansk, which made the city an important destination for travelling English actors.
They concluded their visit to the town with a trip to the European Solidarity Centre, in Gdansk’s shipyards the birth-place of the Solidarity movement in Poland.
For her second day of the royal tour, the Duchess stepped out in a co-ordinate set by Erdem featuring the designer's 'Hurst Rose' print from the SS 2017 collection.
The Erdem 'Imari' skirt (£760.00) is a midi length skirt crafted from a cotton faille with a slight sheen. Its feminine volume is created by tucked folds. It is finished with a high waist and pockets. We have been unable to find a stock photo of the matching cropped top.
The 'Hurst Rose' print is available on a few different Erdem items, including a dress, trousers and top at MyTheresa.com:
On her feet Kate wore the Stuart Weitzman 'NearlyNude' Patent Ankle Strap Sandals (US$398) which we believe are the same pair she debuted a few days ago at the Wimbledon men's singles final.
The Duchess carried a new taupe ostrich embossed clutch bag by Polish brand, Etui. It is a style she already owns in green crocodile-embossed leather, and cream woven leather.
She wore her trusty Cartier Ballon Bleu Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
Kate donned a new necklace and matching earrings.
They appear to be the Antique Gold Vermeil And Custord Amber Earrings and Pendant Set (US$75). Amber is the native gemstone of Poland and it's speculated the set may have been a gift from the Polish government or President.
Tomorrow we will see the Cambridges bid farewell to Poland, before beginning the German element of the tour in the capital, Berlin.
The Cambridge family touched down in Warsaw this afternoon to begin their five-day tour of Poland and Germany. The family of four emerged in coordinating outfits of white, navy and red.
The Duke and Duchess were formally welcomed to Poland by President Duda and the First Lady at the Presidential Palace.
The Duchess of Cambridge started the tour in a new ivory Alexander McQueen peplum coat.
The coat is based on this ready-to-wear piece from the British fashion house. It is currently available at Net-A-Porter and reduced to US$1,538, down from the original price of US$3,075.
The off-the-rack version is tailored in Italy from mid-weight wool and silk-blend twill. The a-line style has a feminine V-neckline and gently kicks out at the waist into a rippling peplum that softly folds at the back. Kate had the coat modified with a simpler peplum without the extended back folds.
The Duchess cinched in the waist with a tonal belt also by Alexander McQueen - the design is similar to the belt found on the dress below from McQueen's current collection.
On her feet she wore her Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Praline Suede Pumps, and she accented the outfit with her red Jenny Packham 'Casa' pony hair clutch.
Kate's choice of white and red hues is an obvious nod to the national colours of Poland. She also accessorised with delicate silver jewellery, featuring a red gemstone. Here's a closer look at Kate's new necklace, earrings and ring. The origin of the pieces is unknown.
On her wrist she wore her Cartier Ballon Bleu Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
Following the formal welcome, The President and First Lady escorted William and Kate to the Warsaw Rising Museum, which is dedicated to the uprising of 1944 which saw the Polish resistance Home Army attempt to liberate Warsaw from German occupation.
The royal couple toured the museum, and meet with veterans before lighting candles in memory of those involved in the Rising.
From here William and Kate visited The Heart in the Warsaw Spire building, joining young Polish entrepreneurs at an event to mark the beginning of a 'Warsaw-London bridge' initiative that aims to help small Polish businesses access London’s unique opportunities for scaling up to become global players.
That evening, William and Kate traveled to the picturesque Orangery in Łazienki Park, where the British Ambassador hosted a Queen's Birthday Party for 600 invited guests.
Kate changed into a cocktail dress for the garden party, showcasing a contemporary piece by Poland's top fashion designer, Gosia Baczynska. Kate dazzled in the sleeveless white number with a plunging neckline and jagged black tipped pleats. Ms Baczynska, who is known for her bold designs, was the first Polish designer to feature in the Paris fashion week calendar.
Kate teamed the dress with her Prada satin clutch bag and Gianvito Rossi Black Suede Ankle Strap d'Orsay Pumps, first worn for a reception in Paris on St Patrick's day 2017.
The Duchess also wore the statement pearl necklace from the same event in Paris, and her Balenciaga Eugenia Pearl Clip Earrings.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have another busy day lined up tomorrow. Day 2 of the royal visit will start on a somber note when William and Kate visit a former Nazi Germany Concentration Camp in Stutthof. Following their morning at Stutthof, the royal couple will travel to Gdansk - a handsome port city located on Poland’s northern Baltic coastline. Then it's off the Gdansk Shakespeare theatre, before concluding their day at the European Solidarity Movement.
The Duchess of Cambridge returned to the Royal Box at the All England Club in her role as Patron having attended the opening day a fortnight ago.
Today she was joined by Prince William to watch Roger Federer vs Marin Cilic, in the Gentlemen's Singles finals match.
Kate wore a white cap sleeve fit-and-flare dress with a botanical print on the skirt. After hours of searching for the origin of the frock, Laura (@ParkysGirl79) on Instagram shared this image showing the print on a different dress by Catherine Walker.
The print is called 'Fleurs Sauvages' and is currently available on a Catherine Walker silk scarf (£295).
Kate again carried her Victoria Beckham 'Quincy' tote which seems to be her go-to bag for Wimbledon. She debuted it at last year's semi finals clash between Serena Williams and Elena Vesnina, and we saw it again when she attended the Men’s Singles opening match on 3rd July.
Kate popped on her Bvlgari BV8170 Black Sunglasses during the game.
She accessorized with her Cassandra Goad Temple of Heaven Earrings.
On the Duchess' wrist was her trusty Cartier Ballon Bleu Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
@TheRoyalsAndI shared this photo by @Easigrass on Twitter which shows Kate’s feet. Although they are blurred we can see she is wearing nude ankle strap sandals.
ID UPDATE (18 Jul 2018): We got a better look at the sandals when Kate wore them again on Day 2 of Royal Visit Poland. They were identified as the Stuart Weitzman 'NearlyNude' Block Heel Sandals in Adobe Patent Leather.
You may have noticed Kate wore a bow pinned to her chest in the official colours of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club - dark green and purple. The bow is given to members of the AELTC club.
I'll see you tomorrow when the royal tour of Poland and Germany kicks-off! The Cambridges are set to arrive in Warsaw at midday. The official itinerary for the tour can be viewed here.
The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Natural History Museum this evening in her role as Patron to officially open the new Hintze Hall featuring the new star display – a diving blue whale skeleton.
She stepped out in a new ice blue Preen by Thornton Bregazzi 'Everly' dress (£637) - with thanks to @regalreplikate for the ID.
The 'Everly' dress is cut from stretch-crepe with a flattering gathered waist and exposed back zipper. It is has sold out in pale-blue but remains available in black.
This is the third occasion Kate has debuted a piece from the London fashion label. You may recall she also owns the Preen 'Finella' dress in red and black.
On her feet, she wore plum suede Prada scalloped sandals. They remain available in black from Net-A-Porter for US$820. It appears they are the same sandals Kate wore for the Bollywood Gala in India last year. At the time, we presumed they were black but it seems they are plum.
Kate carried a new purple suede clutch with gold frame.
According to @ufonomore it is the Jenny Packham 'Belle' clutch shown below in black.
She topped off the look with her Cassandra Goad Temple of Heaven Earrings.
