The Duchess of Cambridge recycled her bespoke, corn flower-blue, Alexander McQueen coat dress(£2,345) that we first saw on the Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand in April. It features a built-in belt that accentuates her small waistline and deep utility pockets. It is made from a wool crepe fabric with a rayon and acetate blend.

Kate paired the coat with a pair of new black, suede pumps (not yet ID’d), her black ‘Bayswater’  clutch by Mulberry and sported her black Sylvia Fletcher fascinator (last seen in June 2013 at the Princess Cruise ship naming ceremony in Southampton), which was perfectly perched above her signature bouncy blowout.

Completing her outfit, the Duchess kept her jewelry simple and wore her sapphire and diamond earrings.
