Earlier today Prince William and his fiancee Kate Middleton visited Witton County Park in Darwen, England.

The Princess-in-waiting wore a vintage navy Amanda Wakeley suit with matching pumps on this official royal visit.

A youthful touch came via her navy clutch with silver embellishments.

Whilst this is the perfect look for Kate on a royal visit, I can’t help wishing she’d take the Michelle Obama approach to dressing.

Formal doesn’t have to equal boring.

Whilst Mrs O has come under attack for cardigans, going sleeveless and her red Alexander McQueen gown which she wore to a state dinner, you can never call her too formal nor too boring.

The pressure on Kate to be stylish and live up to Lady Diana is very high, but with the right brands and the right fashion advisor she could give us youthful yet sophisticated looks and really connect with the younger generation of royal watchers.

At the moment I’m more excited to see what Mrs O wears than Kate.
