The Duchess of Camrbidge does military chic in Sunderland wearing Dolce & Gabbana

By Laura Sutcliffe

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travelled to Sunderland on Wednesday (Feb. 21) to visit one of the city's most iconic buildings, The Fire Station, now converted into a music and art club. Wearing a beautiful military coat in a deep green hue by Dolce & Gabbana, pregnant Kate stunned crowds, accessorizing her look with heels, a simple clutch and delicate jewelry. Her long brunette locks were blown into her trademark loose curls, and natural, fresh makeup highlighted her pretty features.

When the royals arrived, they met with members of the local community who had gathered outside The Fire Station before being treated to performances of music, dance and amateur dramatics from local children and young people inside the venue. Once inside, Kate removed her coat to reveal a pretty floral dress by one of her favourite maternity brands, Seraphine. The couple then travelled to the Northern Spire, where they were among the first to walk across the striking new bridge, which will open in the spring.

Kate, 36, has certainly had a busy week so far. On Monday evening, she stepped into the spotlight with Sophie, The Countess of Wessex for a special fashion event at Buckingham Palace, on behalf of the Queen. The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange is an initiative that uses fashion as a common language and platform to help people understand the modern Commonwealth in a different way. The Duchess wowed waiting photographers in a beautiful dress by Erdem which hugged her pregnancy curves and skimmed her growing baby bump. Sophie, 53, also looked stunning in a black and red Burberry V-neck dress, which hugged her slim frame and perfectly showcased her classically chic style.
