The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued their tour of Ireland with several public engagements on Wednesday (March 4), and earlier today (March 5).
The couple started Wednesday at the Jigsaw National Centre for Youth Mental Health, where Catherine wore one of her most recycled item: her Reiss ‘Olivia’ coat, which she first on her 26th birthday back in 2008.
Catherine opted for the low key outfit of a belted green wax Dubarry jacket and a pair of elegant brown boots by Penelope Chilvers for her visit the Teagasc Animal & Grassland Research Centre at Grange in County Meath.
Beneath the jacket she wore a cream checked Barbour by Alexa Chung blouse, the collar of which could be seen atop her jacket. It’s safe to say that rarely have farm clothes looked so elegant.
Catherine’s final engagement on Wednesday was a visit to Dublin’s Museum of Literature.
My first thought was that while this pink polka dot vintage Oscar de La Renta dress was event appropriate, it also felt a little old fashioned.
As you know I’m all for a modern Duchess within the confines of her role, but this is the kinda ’80s dress I’m not too fond of.
Jimmy Choo accessories completed her look.
There was more polka dots, and more green for the couples visit to the Galway Community Circus, where they met performers, local artists and young musicians today.
Those of you who were “team belt” for her Alessandra Rich look, will be glad to see her wearing a belt with her Suzannah London frock, which she teamed with black suede Ralph Lauren boots and a Jimmy Choo Varenne clutch.
This is an ’80s moment I can get on board with.
Headed to her next engagement, the Duchess wore a military style coat which was of course from Alexander McQueen.
Catherine wore this same coat back in January for her Bradford visit.
As this is the final day of the tour, are you disappointed that she didn’t opt for any local designers, as she had done during her tour of India, or do you feel that she paid homage to the emerald isles perfectly with her succession of green outfits?
