Kate has worn this coat on previous occasions (2011 to visit UNICEF’s Emergency Supply Centre and then again in 2012 to support Wales in a rugby match). It is from LK Bennett’s autumn winter 2011 collection and features a high collar, epaulets, and a waist-clinching belt

Her hair was left long and loose with a part in the middle, rather than the side. On the top of Kate’s head, silver roots were clearly visible and the rest of her hair had a hint of blonde highlights coming through the chestnut.
