Like the rest of us, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have put their summer garbs in the attic for more autumnal colours for their Royal visit to the Middle Temple Treasury to launch a scholarship for law students from disadvantaged backgrounds at the Middle Temple Inn in London today.

Catherine wore a Paule Ka maroon skirt suit with a lace top, black tights and black pumps on a miserable day in the capital.

I do like this suit. It’s event appropriate, as always, and I do love the way Prince William has opted for a matchy tie (how very Posh and Becks of them), but I wonder how Catherine’s autumn/winter style will develop over the coming months.

Will she be swapping her nude LK Bennett pumps for black tights and black pumps?

If so I don’t know how I’m going to cope.
