To celebrate Burns’ Night, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spoke on a short video and also helped provide dinner to a number of NHS staff to mark the occasion. We saw Catherine in a typically apt tartan ensemble.

Kate wore her Emilia Wickstead tartan dress, which we have seen previously. It was worn for the 2019 Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace, and the skirt from the same collection was seen at a Christmas party for armed forces families in 2018. We most recently saw the skirt, plus a scarf and matching face mask, on the Royal Train tour (posts still awaiting their publication… apologies!).

The piece features a midi skirt with knife pleats, white cuffs and pointed collar and a matching tartan belt. For many, this would be tartan overkill, and look either costume-y, or frumpy, but the Duchess seems to pull it off!

The dress and separates come from the Autumn/Winter 2018 collection. See the original dress with sheer puff sleeves, which the Duchess has had replaced.

@MiddletonMaven has confirmed with the label that this is a dress on Kate, so she owns multiples from this line.

The only other fashion detail we got was Catherine choosing her relatively new, but favourite, earrings from Simone Rocha. These are the ‘Faux Pearl Curb-Chain Earrings’. They were first seen and cost . They are currently sold out.
