William & Kate Travel to Nottingham

Today, 35,000 people turned out in Nottingham to greet the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The visit was part of the continuing diamond jubilee tour.

People had queued since 5am to catch a glimpse of the Royal Party.

First stop was Nottingham’s historic Old Market Square.

After a brief balcony appearance at Council House, the Duchess was presented with a posy by eight-year-old Isabelle Weall from Derby, who lost both arms and legs to meningitis in 2010.

The trio then moved on to Vernon Park where The Duke gave a speech.

The Duchess of Cambridge chose to recycle her powder blue tweed M Missoni coat dress (the one we last saw a few months ago when she went for tea at Fortnum and Mason).

This piece from M Missoni’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection and is no longer available HOWEVER Grazia Magazine has announced that the two-year-old coat will be re-issued and in stores this July. It will retails at a steep £670. The stores that will stock this coat dress include the M Missoni flagship store in London, Westfield White City and Shepard’s Bush, Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

Kate originally bought the piece on sale from the outlet at Bicester Village.

Beneath the M. Missoni coat dress, Kate wore her blue Zara dress which we’ve seen on many occassions.

The Duchess accessorized with a navy Rachel Trevor Morgan cocktail hat that she wore at armed forces day, her navy L.K. Bennett ‘Art’ Court Shoes ($150 and no longer available) and a new navy clutch by Jaeger.

The clutch is called the ‘Kate’ bag (Product Code:790001C) and is no longer available in navy. The Jaeger web site still has green in stock. The original price of the clutch was £150 and was reduced to £75.00.

Completing her look, the Duchess wore her sapphire and diamond earrings that we believe we once Diana’s as well as her sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
