On Monday (May 24) Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge embarked on their official tour of Scotland, starting in Edinburgh which saw them visit the Turning Point Scotland’s center in Coatbridge.
The internet went into meltdown when they saw the Duchess wearing this bonnie blue (a nod to the Scottish flag) Zara blazer paired with a pleated Hope skirt, as it was a near identical look to the one Princess Diana wore back in 1992.
On the Hope website, the contrast hem pleated skirt has a sheer panel, which has been lined on the version we see the Duchess wearing – unsurprisingly.
I’m sure some will feel that styling is a little bland with the tan suede Gianvito Rossi pumps and Métier Roma mini suede shoulder bag, but they work for such a formal occasion, however, I’m sure she regretted the shoe choice as it did rain on this day.
Flora drop earrings by Hamilton & Inches completed her look.
While blue is my favourite colour, I wasn’t blown away by this look as I want to be.
That changed on day two, which saw the Duchess reach for her Massimo Dutti cashmere camel coat once again, after its March appearance, for the visit to the Scottish Island of Orkney.
Tones of beige, taupe and tan made up the rest of her look which included a Temperley London sweater, flared trousers and a Emmy London clutch, but the most significant part of this look was her plaid scarf.
It’s the Strathearn tartan, a reference to the couple’s title in Scotland: the Earl and Countess of Strathearn.
The Hamilton & Inches earrings made a reappearance along with the Gianvito Rossi pumps.
