HRH Catherine Chooses a High Street Favorite for Official Opening of St George’s Park


This morning, William and Kate travelled by helicopter to St George’s Park, the England football team’s new Staffordshire training base in Burton-Upon-Trent, Staffordshire. Specifically, they were to officially open the new £100m FA centre.

They were given a tour of the main facilities before meeting England manager Roy Hodgson and his squad as they trained for their World Cup qualifier on Friday.


The Duchess of Cambridge wore a steel grey winter coat by one of her high street favorites, Reiss. It is the ‘Angel Fit and Flare’ coat (£227) in military grey from their AW10 collection.

The coat was accessorised with a grey Reiss Betony belt (£69) from their SS09 line, black suede Aquatalia ‘Rumba’ boots over thick black tights and a black suede clutch (another favorite but not yet ID’ed).
Completing her look, Kate wore her Kiki McDonough 18ct gold, green amethyst and diamond earrings
Additional Information on Kate’s coat
Knee length, fit and flare style wool coat with a large wrap around collar and smart multi stitch detailing. Sleek, with clean lines and a block colour palette. 80% Wool, 20% Polyamide.
This may also have been the unidentified coat we saw Kate wearing at Sandringham, Christmas 2011.
Reiss also confirmed that while shopping in their Bichester village (end of October 2011), Kate

purchased the ‘Angel fit and flare’ coat in fawn. So keep an eye out for this too.

The dress that Kate wore under her Reiss coat has been ID’ed! Thanks to a follower on WKW and a seller on Ebay (Copykate). It is the Cezzane Print dress in Pine Needle from Great Plains (currently on sale for £48).
