Kate Middleton Style Watch: Kate Conquers Canada
Kate looks amazing wherever she goes, how does she do it?
As Kate Middleton (the Duchess of Cambridge, I know, I know) made her way through Canada with her fabulous hubby, Prince William, she mastered the art of the quick change. She donned multiple chic ensembles, sometimes as many as four a day. We’d love to know her secret.
Read on for all of Kate’s looks in Canada.
Friday may have been the start of our holiday weekend, but July 1 also marked Canada Day. It’s a national holiday celebrating the country’s birthday. Appropriately, Kate got inspired by the country’s flag, donning red, white, and maple leaf.
The Duchess’s outfit consisted of a fascinator with red maple leaves specially made by Sylvia Fletcher of Lock and Company for the tour, an Anya Hindmarch Fan clutch, Albini Square Cut Court shoe in red and Reiss Nannette zip frill dress in cream. Kate thought the dress was so nice… she actually wore it twice. We first saw her in it in her official engagement photo. Yes, it’s being reissued for the fall!
Prince William and Kate made quite the gorgeous pair as they continued the Canada Day festivities at Parliament Hill that evening. Kate wore a purple DEEP (really deep) v-neck jersey dress by one of her favorite designers, Issa. She paired it with a Bespoke Maud satin clutch in black. Though I doubt Queen Elizabeth would approve of all that cleavage, Kate still managed to look lovely as always.
The Duke and Duchess kept with tradition on Saturday, July 2, heading to Rideau Hall in Ottawa for a tree planting ceremony, just as Prince Charles and Princess Diana once did in 1983. The day hit a somewhat somber note, as the couple stood for a moment of silence by the very tree planted by William’s parents in commemoration of what would have been Diana’s 50th birthday.
Kate’s outfit for the day was definitely stunning, but wasn’t exactly dirt-shoveling appropriate. She wore the Kensington dress by Catherine Walker, Tabitha Simmons Dela point toe high heel shoes in cream and gray matched with a Summerton clutch in silver.
