Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Smythe – Cyprus Visit

Fashion Blogger Catherine Kallon feature the Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Smythe - Cyprus Visit

Following yesterday’s festivities at Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to meet the servicemen and their families living at the base on Wednesday (December 5).

I’m sure since her Erdem frock back in October, it hasn’t escaped your notice that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has had somewhat of a mini style overhaul, and that continued today as she arrived in Cyprus wearing trousers, much to the surprise of those of us who like to keep a close eye on the royal’s wardrobe.

Over the years she’s been partial to a pair of skinny jeans, but she’s never been seen in a smart wide-leg pair of trousers for a public engagement.

Her tailored olive blazer by Canadian brand Smythe, aptly called the ‘Duchess Wool Blazer’, was styled with navy Jigsaw trousers and an ivory knit top.

We’ve grown tired of the nude L.K. Bennett heels, so I was delighted to see her opt for a fern green pair which matched her clutch.

All in all, it has been a very good 24 hours style wise for Catherine.

I think I love this look more than the previous. Only because refreshing change of direction once again, and the impeccable way in which she presented this look.

Methinks someone has a new stylist.

Meghan, Duchess Of Sussex In Smythe, Misha Nonoo & Tuxe – ‘Together’ Cookbook Launch

Meghan, Duchess Of Sussex In Smythe, Misha Nonoo & Tuxe -  'Together' Cookbook Launch

Meghan, Duchess Of Sussex hosted a luncheon at Kensington Palace today (September 20), to celebrate the launch of her charity cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook (with a foreword written by Meghan and recipes from a group of women affected by the Grenfell Tower fire), alongside Prince Harry and mother Doria Ragland.

This is Meghan’s first project as a royal.

The money raised by the book will allow the Hubb Community Kitchen to operate full-time, and serve many in need.

I was delighted to see the return of Meghan’s coats.

You may remember earlier this year that Meghan presented many chic, inspiring outerwear, and this blue Smythe coat sees the first royal coat of the fall season.

The colour is gorgeous; such a regal hue.

Her coat was the highlight of the look, with a Misha Nonoo pleated skirt and Tuxe top rounding out the look along with Sarah Flint pumps.

Doria was also looking very chic in her camel hues. I’m loving the combo of cashmere sweater, cropped trousers and chic printed scarf.

Prince Harry was looking relaxed, taking a step back to allow his wife to take centre stage as this was her moment.
