Royal Tour Day 4, Norway: Kate teams plum Dolce & Gabbana coat with floral byTiMo frock on final day of royal visit
The final day of William and Kate's royal visit to Norway began at the Hartvig Nissen School, which was the location for the hugely successful Norwegian television programme Skam.
The Duke and Duchess, accompanied by The Crown Prince and Princess of Norway, meet the stars of Skam to hear more about the making of the drama series which highlights the many challenges teenagers can experience growing up. They also joined students and mental health support staff to chat about the impact of Skam, and the effect it had on bringing important issues out into the open.
Following the school visit, William and Kate enjoyed a private lunch with Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette-Marit and their labradoodle Muffins Kråkebolle at Skagum, their official residence.
The Duchess opted for a new plum coat from the Italian luxury fashion house of Dolce & Gabbana.
We've been unable to locate it in the plum colour so below we show it in black from FarFetch. Crafted of luxurious virgin wool, the design is characterised by its two line button fastening, classic collar, piqued shoulders and slim long sleeves, drawing in at the waist with darts and falling with a gentle flare to the knee. The coat is complete with two flap pockets, and a rear central vent. Originally retailing for US$2,675, the coat has now been marked down by 30% at FarFetch.
The only significant difference in the design between Kate's coat and the off-the-rack piece above are the buttons. Kate's are metallic compared with horn or plastic on the ready-to-wear version.
Beneath Kate's coat we got a glimpse of a floral pattered dress.
ID wizzard @HeavenQRF was quick to let us know that it was by Norwegian brand, byTiMo - a favorite of Crown Princess Mette-Marit. The Duchess wore the label's Lace Trimmed Shift Dress (US$295). It's a classic shift dress with an A-line shape, a high neck and elbow length sleeves.
It has an oval-heckled lace detailing on the collar, on the shoulders and on the waistline which you can see in more detail below. The dress has sold out on the byTiMo website but is still available in limited sizes from Tuckernuck.
Kate finished the look with the following familiar accessories:
