The Duchess of Cambridge brought out the stylish outerwear when the pair stepped out to Jigsaw, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health on March 4. More than a decade on, the elegant coat still turns heads!
The mom of three looked as fresh as can be in the chic double breasted style with statement collar and fit-and-flare silhouette. She teamed the Reiss Olivia Coat's black buttons with black skinny jeans and black ankle boots, which are believed to be her favourite pair from Russell & Bromley.
Once inside the venue – which provides vital mental health support to young people aged 12 to 25 – Kate removed her jacket to showcase a black-and-white polka dot Equipment blouse, which is another piece that Kate has recycled. The Duchess of Cambridge previously wore the top from the French label while visiting Sunshine House in September.
In Dublin, Kate rounded out her look with an elegant blow dry with a centre part in her hair. Her makeup had a fresh-faced, natural glow, in keeping with her signature look.
Kate is famous for re-wearing items from her wardrobe, and does it with ease. Royals fans were especially wowed to see her wear the cream Reiss coat because it dates back to before she and William were married or even engaged!
The duchess owned the high street coat before marrying into the Royal Family. She was photographed in the striking style in 2007 at Peter Phillips's birthday. Kate wore the jacket again in 2008 while supporting then-boyfriend Prince William at his RAF graduation ceremony in Cranwell.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been paying tribute to the Emerald Isle through her fashion choices since the very start of the tour. Kate wore two green ensembles during her first day in Ireland with William.
The mom of three arrived in the country in a forest green Catherine Walker coat with a swirling emerald green printed dress from Alessandra Rich. At later engagements, Kate took off the jacket to reveal the frock's full elegance.
She accessorized with a vivid green L.K. Bennett clutch, dark green pumps and a trendy black padded headband. The duchess also debuted new diamond Daisy Heritage Earrings by Asprey London that are worth about $30,000.
Later in the evening, the duchess glimmered in a green dress by The Vampire's Wife as she and William visited the Guinness Storehouse's Gravity Bar in Dublin. Kate dazzled in the Falconetti Emerald Metallic Silk Dress, deep green pumps and statement golden earrings.
The UK brand is also one of Princess Beatrice's favourite labels.
