Duchess of Cambridge chooses leopard print skirt & new necklace for her children on mini-tour

The Duchess of Cambridge went on a mini tour of the UK today, to promote the 5 Big Questions survey. She headed to Cardiff and Surrey, but an engagement in London was cancelled due to bad weather. For a baby sensory class at the Ely and Careau Children’s Centre in Cardiff, Catherine stepped out in a chic coat from Massimo Dutti, a higher end brand owned by high street Spanish chain store Zara.

The Duchess chose a Massimo Dutti ‘Limited Edition Buttoned Cashmere/Wool Camel Coat’, retailing for £349  but was on sale for £149. This very beautiful coat has a deep cross over peak collar, double breasted buttons down the centre, flap hip pockets, rear panels and vent and four button cuffs. The maxi length adds a touch of class to this rich camel coloured coat. A definite wardrobe staple that you could wear for years and years. We thought this coat on the Duchess was fab, and the colour and silhouette suits her perfectly. Try this coat to get the Duchess’ look for less.

Catherine chose a Zara ‘Animal Print Skirt’, the skirt originally retailed for a very reasonable £29.99 and was on sale for an incredibly affordably £9.99.

Catherine added a new gold textured round disc pendant, that features the letters ‘G’, ‘C’, and  ‘L’ for George, Charlotte and Louis, with three small engraved stars. It comes from Daniella Draper, and is their ‘Personalised Gold Midnight Moon Necklace’ costing £1,070.00. It is created in 9ct gold, on an 18-inch chain, and hand engraved. They come with a diamond set into the front too, but it looks as if Kate’s doesn’t have one, which might have brought down the price a little.

You might remember she also owns a Merci Mamman long necklace with George and William’s initials on, that we saw back in 2013/14. You can still get one here, and it has been renamed ‘The Duchess’ necklace.

A great look for the Duchess today and a very wearable ensemble for everyone. We would definitely recommend you try to replicate this look – super chic, and hugely versatile for non-Royals. You can get Kate’s look here:
