Duchess Kate recycles go-to British designer for a visit to Imperial War Museum

By Meaghan Wray

It’s only Wednesday and the Duchess of Cambridge is already out for her second royal engagement of the week! The brunette beauty paid an elegant visit to London’s Imperial War Museum ahead of Armistice Day to see letters relating to her great-grandmother’s three brothers, all whom fought and died in the First World War. Naturally, Kate dazzled for the historical affair, dusting off one of her favourite British designers.

Recycling an old favourite, Duchess Kate slipped into a beautiful royal blue Jenny Packham dress, which she first wore during her 2016 tour in Canada! The design boasts an accentuated shoulder and a very slight bell sleeve. She paired the piece with beige pumps and a matching nude Mulberry England clutch, keeping her copper locks in classic waves at her shoulders. Donning her trademark smoky eye, a nude lip and minimal jewelry, the 36-year-old looked absolutely perfect for a day out learning about her extended family.

Kate was surely fascinated to get to know her late relatives, especially when their role in history was as honourable as serving their country in the war. The mother of three started off by touring the First World War Galleries, where she learned about her great-uncles’ experiences and saw a few documents connected to her family. The duchess was even able to take a look at a letter of condolences from the Keeper of the Privy Purse at Buckingham Palace.

Since returning from maternity leave, after welcoming Prince Louis into the Cambridge clan, Kate has certainly been busy! Earlier this week, she and Prince William headed to Essex to meet with participants in their Royal Foundation’s Coach Core program, where the sporty pair played tennis and did drills with kids. The week prior, they attended a glitzy state banquet as the Queen welcomed King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima for their first UK state visit. The couple will be glamming up once again next week as they attend the Tusk Conservation Awards on Nov. 8.
