Kate mixes Canadian and British designers on her visit to Haida Gwaii

All eyes were on Duchess Kate as she and Prince William made a memorable entrance in Haida Gwaii via canoe, but their mode of transportation wasn't the only show-stopper. Mixing Canadian and British labels, the mother of two arrived in an eye-catching and effortlessly elegant ensemble.

The stylish royal turned heads in an elegant jacket from Canadian brand Smythe, which she paired with an ivory blouse with bow detailing from Somerset by Temperley and a pair of skinny jeans from Zara. It's not the first time the British beauty has worn the jeans during the tour, having also chosen them when she and Prince William visited Bella Bella and the Great Bear Rainforest earlier this week.

She completed the look with brown boots and also upped the beauty stakes with her brunette tresses left down in a voluminous blow-dry, kept off her face with a brown braided headband.

Upon arrival, William and Kate were greeted by First Nations locals on the beach before heading to explore the Haida Heritage Centre and museum, where they watched a traditional welcoming ceremony including cultural dances.

It's not the first time that she has championed a Canadian designer during the tour. Kate has already paid several sartorial tributes to her host nation, including sparkling earrings from Canadian jewellery creator Pippa Small.


The duchess has also been spotted wearing the country's iconic colours on numerous occasions, from a stunning red Preen gown for a reception at Government House to an eye-catching Alexander McQueen design in red and white.

She has also accessorized a few of her outfits with a statement maple leaf brooch, which is owned by the Queen and was previously worn by the Queen Mother when she visited Canada in 1939.
