The Royal duo have landed! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have concluded their three week tour of New Zealand and Australia. With baby Prince George by their side, it is unsurprising that not only were the media inundated with the latest style picks of Kate but also by the sheer cuteness of baby George. Kate’s style guide is never a one trick pony and we have seen yet again her choice of outfits perfectly fitting for her schedule. Kate’s beautiful selection of designer and high street has truly paved the way for Kate’s most sartorial moments.
To kick-start the royal tour, Kate walked off the plane with baby George looking absolutely regal and ladylike in a Catherine Walker double breasted red suit and black courts as well a gift from the Queen – a fern shaped diamond and platinum brooch first worn by Queen during her Commonwealth tour in 1954. As a new mother, Kate and George visited the Plunkett’s Parents group where George was met by many friendly faces and teddy bears galore. Dressed in a black and white Tory Burch dress, George was looking ever so dashing in a sailboard outfit by Rachel Wiley. As the tour progressed, Kate began to show signs of blue as one her most popular tones for the trip as she stepped out in a gorgeous cornflower blue Alexander McQueen coat as the duo lay a wreath at Blenheim War Memorial.
With the appearance of Jenny Packham on the cards – one of Kate’s favourite designers, it was no surprise that Kate would be wearing one of her designs. Kate slipped into a custom made, long sleeved and midi length silhouette with elegant hand embellished sparkles on the shoulder for the Queen Elizabeth portrait unveiling. Erdem was also a popular choice for the Duchess, having worn the brand many times before causing an immediate sell out of the pre fall 2013 wool crepe coat with black suede court pumps with a Mulberry clutch bag.
Though a royal, Kate is a well known repeater of outfits as on the Cambridge’s’ last stop in New Zealand, Kate wore a tweedy blue skirt by Rebecca Taylor.
Australia was next on the agenda as Kate’s wardrobe burst with exotic colours and prints. On arrival, Kate’s most trusted nude L.K Bennett pumps were teamed with a yellow and white blocked Ryedale dress by Roksanda Ilincic. Easter Sunday featured Kate’s pale lilac hued Alexander McQueen skirt suit and clutch, hat by Jane Taylor and L.K Bennett suede pumps. Alexander McQueen was once again a winner as Kate wore a blush pink V neck, three quarter sleeve top with a matching pleated knee length skirt.
Catherine Walker was repeated as the Duchess wore a unique green ensemble for a visit to the National Arboretum in Canberra with poise. For an evening reception at Government House, Kate chose to wear a macramé lace and peplum white dress from the Lela Rose spring 2012 collection. Departing Australia was no disappointment as the Duke and Duchess visited the Australian war memorial in Camberra with Kate opting for a tweed coat from the spring 2014 range of Michael Kors for the very first time.
With Kate’s gorgeous femininity, she was not all suits as she was seen wearing a double breasted blazer from Zara, J Brand skinny jeans and her trusted Russell and Bromley wedges. High street designers were part of Kate’s casual wear, as she wore a cream waffle knit jumper by Jonathon Saunders as well Gap. For the iconic photo in front of Ayers Rock in Uluru, The Duchess changed into her second of high street outfit – a fit and flare dress by Hobbs.
Kate became a style goddess in her own right and has once again dressed to impressed, causing an aura of excitement for Britain back home.
