The Duchess of Cambridge's tour wardrobe is carefully followed by fans around the world, from her thoughtfully stylish nods to host countries to elegant travel ensembles and gorgeous gala looks. Here, we round up all of Kate's fashionable moments while on tour with Prince William and Prince George in Australia and New Zealand in 2014, from playdates to formal dinners and a special outing to the zoo.
Kate scored some serious style points donning all of her favourite designer and high-street brands – from Alexander McQueen to Zara. The now-mother of two has become an icon in her own right thanks to her propensity for high-low dressing, which makes for a welcome mix of genuine princess moments and down-to-earth, approachable ensembles.
Just like when the Cambridges visited Canada in 2011, the sartorially savvy princess was sure to pay homage to each country she visits through carefully chosen details. On day one of this tour, she arrived in Auckland sporting a silver fern-shaped brooch – New Zealand’s official symbol – fastened to the lapel of her scarlet coat. Later in the tour, she wore a cocktail dress with a fern motif on the shoulder.
