Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead - St Patrick's Day Parade

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a St Patrick’s Day parade by the 1st Battalion Irish Guards as she visited Aldershot Barracks on Sunday in Aldershot, England with her husband, Prince William.

Showing – somewhat – her baby bump, the Duchess donned a forest-green coat dress by one of her favoured designers: Emilia Wickstead.

The coat, which she also wore on St Patrick’s Day 2012, was decorated with a shamrock brooch.

Sporting a rare and elaborate updo, the Duchess wore a black John Locke hat, which was also worn back in March, 2012.

Keeping herself warm on a cold and wet Sunday afternoon, Catherine wore a black turtleneck and black tights, completing her look with black gloves.

The highlight of the day was when one of Catherine’s heels got caught one in a grate and had to be rescued by her husband, while the officers continued to salute.

She carried off the incident gracefully and with a smile.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Hobbs – Grimsby Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Hobbs - Grimsby Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was visiting the National Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby, England yesterday to meet young people who had turned their lives around with the help of the Prince’s Trust.

The Duchess, who is 21 weeks into her pregnancy, wore a Hobbs coat, accented with a narrow belt, over her barely visible bump.

This is not the first time she has worn this chocolate three-quarter-length coat, you won’t be surprised to know.

She first wore it on Valentine’s Day back in 2012, when it sold out instantly, and again on Christmas Day. This time she teamed it with printed dress.

Annoushka pearl earrings and black pumps completed her event-appropriate look.

I can see why Kate likes recycling this look so often. This is a great colour for her, plus the coat is doing a great job of concealing her baby bump.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge opted for a springtime look this afternoon on a rare sunny day in London for her first public engagement since returning from her family holiday to the Caribbean.

She visited Hope House in London, a rehabilitation centre for women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, wearing a Max Mara wrap dress with black pumps.

The grey jersey print dress with a v-neck, cross-over front and ruched waist conceals the baby bump we were eagerly waiting to see, which is still in the early stages.

Sporting a radiant mother-to-be or fresh-from-vacation glow, her enviable tresses looked even glossier than ever.

Gorgeous, glowing, married to a prince… I couldn’t be more envious.

Best Dressed Royal 2012 – Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Ever since Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, walked down the aisle in a breathtaking Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton wedding gown in 2011, she not only became British royalty but also a fashion princess.

This year, with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, Catherine only cemented her status as the best-dressed royal, where she set trends, inspired styles, and caused more than a few designer items to sell out within hours.

Her personal style—prim, proper and uncompromisingly classic—may not be as adventurous and daring as some other best-dressed winners, but she still manages to make a dazzling spectacle with her trendsetting (and sometimes repeat) staples.

Her favorite designers include Erdem, Jenny Packham, Katherine Hooker, LK Bennett and McQueen, natch. But what makes Catherine so charming is that she wears High Street style from Reiss and Zara just as royally.

Now that she’s pregnant, rest assured Kate will have the most well-dressed baby bump of 2013.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – St Andrews School Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, visited her former school, St Andrews, in Pangbourne, England this afternoon, where she attended between 1986 and 1995, to meet and greet the teachers and students.

She donned a green-and-navy tartan print by her favourite British label, Alexander McQueen, paying homage to her former school uniform, which I thought was a nice touch.

After all, she wants to be considered the people’s princess.

Her tailored tartan look was styled with a black clutch and black suede knee boots.

After two so-so attempts to impress this week, this is one of her best looks in a long while.
