Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Roksanda Ilincic – Sydney Airport & Sydney Opera House

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Roksanda Ilincic - Sydney Airport & Sydney Opera House2

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Prince George of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Sydney Airport this afternoon (April 16) in Sydney, Australia.

Catherine stepped off the plane looking picture perfect wearing a bright-yellow Roksanda Ilincic ‘Ryedale’ Spring 2014 frock.

While locals were left slight disappointed that Catherine didn’t wear an Australian designer, her colour choice was significant as yellow is one of Australia’s national colours.

This has to be one of the most contemporary looks she has worn, with its three-quarter-length sleeves and white panels at the hem and under the arms.

Her trusted nude LK Bennett heels made a return after a succession of navy and black pumps worn so far on this promo tour.

Catherine completed the look with her brunette locks swept up into a half-up ‘do, showcasing her diamond earrings.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Rebecca Taylor – Royal New Zealand Police College

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Rebecca Taylor - Royal New Zealand Police College

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge visited the Royal New Zealand Police College in Porirua near Wellington, New Zealand on Wednesday (April 16).

The Duchess donned a formal blue ‘Sparkle Tweed’ two-piece blazer-and-skirt suit by New Zealand designer Rebecca Taylor.

Her look was styled with navy Alexander McQueen pumps and a matching clutch, with half of her brunette hair up and the rest curled at the bottom.

Considering the rain, I’m surprised she didn’t opt for another coat/dress.

Royal watchers would’ve instantly recognised this suit, because Catherine has worn it once before. The recycler previously wore the suit in April 2012 at a reception for the Scott-Amundsen Centenary Race in London.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Luisa Spagnoli – Botanical Gardens Opening

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Luisa Spagnoli - Botanical Gardens Opening

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge officially opened the Visitor’s Centre at the Botanical Gardens in Christchurch, New Zealand on Monday (April 14).

After wearing a green Erdem coat and teal-blue Emilia Wickstead dress this weekend, Catherine opted for red on this occasion, the colour which signalled the start of this tour.

Catherine wore a suit by Italian designer Luisa Spagnoli, but this is not the first time she has donned this look.

It was first worn on a visit to St Andrews back in 2011.

On that occasion she wore the suit with a black polo neck and knee-high boots; today she styled it with a black clutch, black pumps and a half-up, half-down ‘do.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead – Palm Sunday Service

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead - Palm Sunday Service

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge touched down at Dunedin International Airport on Sunday (April 13) in Dunedin, New Zealand ahead of attending a Palm Sunday service at St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral.

Wearing another colour-popping look on day seven of the royal tour, following yesterday’s emerald Erdem coat, she wore a turquoise Emilia Wickstead long-sleeved dress cinched in waist featuring a pleated skirt, falling above the knee. I’m sure this shorter length will please those who said her Jenny Packham dress was too short.

The Duchess paired her eye-catching Sunday best frock with a matching blue hat by milliner Jane Taylor, with some sparkle courtesy of the Queen, Catherine wore her diamond fern brooch, which was given to the Queen in 1954 by the women of Auckland.

This look is particularly significant considering London-based designer Emilia Wickstead is originally from New Zealand.

Dark-green suede accessories, which don’t work for the look for me, completed her look.

You may remember that Catherine also owns this dress in pink, which she has worn twice before.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Erdem – Rainbow Place Children’s Hospice Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Erdem - Rainbow Place Children's Hospice Visit

On day six of her three week tour of Australia and New Zealand, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge visited the Rainbow Place Children’s Hospice in Hamilton, New Zealand on Saturday (April 12).

If there’s one thing, Catherine knows how to wear extremely well, it’s a tailored coat.

On this occasion she wore a demure Erdem Pre-Fall 2013 bright grass-green, wool-crepe coat featuring a tab-detailed waist drawing attention to the narrowest point.

Cut to the knee, the coat totally obscures a budding heart print Suzannah tea dress she wore under the coat.

Black pumps and a Mulberry clutch accessorized her look.

Following the Blenheim War Memorial, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge attended a state reception held at Government House on Thursday evening (April 9) in Wellington, New Zealand where the Duke unveiled a portrait of the Queen.

Catherine opted for a custom LBD from her other favourite British designer: Jenny Packham.

The fitted dress with a swing skirt was accented with a glittering fern on her shoulder to represent New Zealand’s national emblem for a charming touch.

Black pumps and a black clutch completed her look, while she opted to wear her hair down this evening following a rare ponytail earlier in the day.
