Princess Beatrice wore a Suzannah ‘Versailles’ coat dress in cream for the occasion, which retails at £1,350. This pretty coat features a round neckline with peter pan collar, a wide placket with hidden front zip closure. The coat has ultra feminine touches with a cinched front waist band with 4 vertical buttons on either side of the placket, slight bell sleeves and a half belt at the rear to create a fitted bodice with a slight a-line flared skirt. The coat is made from a silk/cotton mixed jacquard with lurex thread in a tiny dot weave.
Princess Beatrice’s ensemble was identical to the model that appears on both the Suzannah and Emily London websites. You can purchase this coat dress here.
Beatrice wore the ‘Cambridge’ boater hat by Emily London, retailing for £685. The Cambridge style is part of the Spring/Summer 2018 Collection and the boater that is currently available to purchase online, states it is a blush colour (though it is quite a pale pink), whilst Princess Beatrice’s looks to be a much lighter pastel pink colour, as seen on the model in the image below. The crown, brim and band are all made from tweed and can be custom dyed to match any outfit.
This boater hat is not free standing as most others normally are, being fastened to the head with a concealed elastic or bobby pins, the Cambridge it is in fact attached to an Alice band to give the hat a permanent tilt.
This is one of my favourite hats that Beatrice has worn, the boater titled slightly to the right creates a dramatic chic look for her. You can purchase this hat here.
It was the return of an old pair of heels for Beatrice: she wore Kurt Geiger ‘Britton’ patent leather stilettos in nude, retailing for £150. These are a slightly unusual pair of court heels as they have a partially-covered, very thin gold metal stiletto heel. At first glance you may think these should have a wedge heel but it is almost like this heel is in two minds.
She carried a Bottega Veneta knot clutch in lilac, retailing for £1,260. The clutch features the labels signature intrecciato woven finish, an intricately woven diagonal pattern in smooth silk, with a rounded frame; this is then trimmed in snakeskin. The clasp of the clutch is the distinctive Brunito metal knot-shaped fastening, engraved with the Intrecciato motif.

Princess Beatrice did not accessorise with any earrings today.
A great ensemble for the Princess today, this is one of her most beautiful coat choices to date. It was light, ultra feminine and a beautiful soft colour choice for spring, of ivory, pastel pink and lilac. The cinched waist band and triple buttons of the coat created a beautiful hour glass figure on Beatrice and the length was just right. A very pulled-together look – gorgeous!
