The Duchess of Cambridge chose cornflower blue – a nod to the flower of Germany – in Berlin today; more details on her meeting Angela Merkel and more here.
Kate’s Catherine Walker coat featured 3/4 sleeves, three large fabric buttons to the waist, and a full skirt, fuller than the original. The other difference was the notches in the lapel, also being thicker than the first collar.
Catherine wore a paler blue lace dress underneath the coat, we got just a little peek.
She paired the coat with her ‘Praline’ Gianvito Rossi heels, and a new clutch by Jimmy Choo, the ‘Vivien clam satin clutch’. Made from satin, ruched under a central diamante ball, the frame is rounded on the top edges. It cost £650 and is still available in black and nude here.
Lastly, the Duchess chose her Kiki McDonough blue topaz and diamond drop earrings, worn in Luxembourg, costing £2916. She teamed it with a new necklace, the ‘flower necklace’ from the Eden collection of the brand – also in blue topaz and diamond – costing £1400.
What do you think of the look? It was a hit for me
