There was a new fab four on the royal beat today, as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Charles and Camilla for a visit to the DMRC in Lougborough. More on the visit here.
In a new navy skirt suit from McQueen, Catherine channelled the military look. With a peplum effect jacket, studded with buttons and a tall pointed collar, Kate returned to classic McQueen. Today is incidentally the 10th anniversary of Alexander McQueen’s death. The skirt skimmed the mid-calf, with pleats flaring from the thigh.
Generally, we thought this a bit off for the Duchess; the collar was a bit too overwhelming on her, and although midi length is still in, we’re not sure this was the best combination of pieces.
If this looks familiar, it’s because it is! The Duchess has had other pieces based on this piece. This coat, worn on St Patrick’s Day, takes various elements from the jacket – notice the collar and seams that come from the neck, as well as the peplum-like detail and buttons.
Kate chose a bag from McQueen, the ‘Wicca’ mini satchel in black.
She also wore her Ralph Lauren pointed boots; these have been worn a few times in recent weeks.
The Duchess opted for her Mappin & Webb ‘Empress’ earrings.
This was a difficult one to match but copy the look here:
