There were three outfits for The Duchess of Cambridge in Heidelberg today, a sunny yellow dress, a casual light blue breton top and then an eagle-print midi dress for the evening.
The first dress of the day came from Jenny Packham, in a lighter cream fabric, with the yellow appliqued lace flowers on top. The fit was fit and flare, with t-shirt sleeves, box pleats to the skirt and cream piping from the waist to the neckline.
Kate chose her Monsoon ‘Fleur’ wedges, probably a more suitable option for the cobbled streets.
There was a new pair of earrings for the Duchess, from Oscar de la Renta. The ‘pearl sun star button‘, costing £142, features a central pearl with gold rays radiating from the centre.
Kate carried her McQueen suede clutch in cream; this is a hard case bag, rounded at the ends, with steel-coloured metal trim and an elongated clasp. Her hair was worn loose.
Then came a change for the boat race; Kate put on a pair of non-descript black jeans, and a new pale blue and white breton strip top. What Kate Wore claims it to be from Hugo Boss.
She paired it with her Superga white trainers, a suitable choice.
Lastly, for a reception back in Berlin, the Duchess wore a German designer, Markus Lupfer. The dress features a bird, something like an owl or kestrel; it might have been chosen as an eagle the bird of the country, but there’s little resemblance.
Kate chose a hexagonal pattern belt, which looked metallic. The bag also seems new, in a grey, cubic pattern. More pictures as I find them.
Her shoes were another new pair, from Prada. This pair of wavy strap heels are in ‘quartz’; she has the same ones in black and plum. The feature a 4.5 inch heel, three scalloped straps and a zip to the back heel.
Lastly, for jewellery, the Duchess wore her Soru pearl stone earrings, and a three-strand pearl bracelet.
