Kate Middleton and Prince William visited the RNLI Holyhead Lifeboat Station in Anglesey, north west Wales today – their first visit to the country since they were made Prince and Princess of Wales. For the occasion, Kate wore a bright red coat, almost in honour of Wales and its national flag.
Kate’s coat is from the British brand LK Bennett and is the Spencer Red Recycled Wool Blend Snaffle-Detail Coat.
Some royal fans suggest the coat colour and name is a nod to the former Princess of Wales, Princess Diana.
She also wore red during her first official visit to Wales when she became the Princess of Wales back in 1981.
Kate’s coat, on the other hand, is described as a “statement with heritage-inspired snaffle detail”.
Underneath the coat, she wore a black round neck top which was tucked into a pair of high-waisted wide-leg trousers. She carried a small black handbag with her, which is from the brand Grace Han.
It is the Black Love Letter Small Top Handle Bag and has been in her wardrobe for a few years.
Made from 100 percent calfskin leather, it is priced at £2,050 and “makes a perfect companion with its elegance and classic shape”.
“Its distinctive envelope closure is an ode to Love Letters of the past present and future,” Grace Han explained.
The Princess of Wales also wore a pair of gold rectangle hoop earrings.
They are the ‘Alia’ Hoops made by Welsh jewellery brand Spells of Love.
Made from 18k recycled gold plated, they are the “ultimate hoops for any occasion, a big and bold statement piece that dresses up any outfit”.
The earrings are handcrafted and are priced at £79.
They also come in other metals, rose gold and silver, priced at £79 and £65.
