Worn in Week: The Duchess of Cambrige's busy week, Plus Pregnancy Announcement

 UPDATE: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have admitted to be expecting their first child. According to Richard Palmer The Duchess was admitted today to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, Kate is expected to stay in the hospital for few days as her sickness requires hydration and nutrients, after that Catherine is supposed to rest as she's in the early stages of pregnancy! Congratulations to the couple!

So you know it now, world, Kate Middleton is Pregnant, Should we expect Alexander McQueen maternity Couture?

Last week, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge had four engagements. As you may have heard she's getting her role growing and is having more engagements by time until she becomes a full-working royal like Countess Sophie of Wessex.

The first engagement was visiting Millennium Stadium in Cardiff to watch the match against New Zealand’s All Blacks team with her husband, Prince William.

Kate wore her red Ami coat from LK Bennet that she has worn last year UNICEF’s Emergency Supply Centre in Copenhagen. This time the former Middleton wore the original belt that comes with the coat instead of the Reiss wide belt she wore in Copenhagen.

She teamed her outfit with a red Gucci Monogram Canvas Horsebit Clutch, It comes from an old collection, you can find one or two of it on Ebay, the design of the clutch is a classic Gucci style that's usually issued in different prints and materials.

Kate also debuted her new haircut that day, I'm not sure if I like the fringes...

Then on November, 27th Catherine attended the opening of a new Gallery at the Natural History Museum.

She repeated her green Full Pleated Shirt Dress from Mulberry, she firstly wore it earlier this year. I didn't like it then, and I don't like it now!

Catherine also wore her Jimmy Choo Cosmic’ pumps. That day we've seen new earrings on Kate, they seem to be made of emeralds.

The next day The Duke and Duchess arrived in Cambridge for a historical visit to their namesake city.

They had a tour, and visited lots of places and there was a balcony appearance.

The Duchess was wearing the Belli coat by Max Mara (Countess Sophie of Wessex has a similar one) with a tiger-printed dress underneath.

 The coat is described on Lyst as:
Virgin wool and cashmere mix coat with gorgeous bow belt. Coat. Plain. Standard length. Single breasted. Funnel neck. Long-sleeved. Button fastening. Belt included. Not waterproof.

And if you didn't notice, Kate worn the belt upside down... The Duchess was on a hurry!

Kate carried her brown Emmy clutch, but handed her aide the Le Pliage from Longchamp. On her way home Kate was seen carrying it.

Kate also wore her Aquatalia Rouge booties for the 1000th time along with her Kiki McDonough 'Grace' Earrings.

On November, 30th The Duchess of Cambridge or Squeak -her nickname when she was at school- visited Saint Andrew’s School which was her prep. school.

Kate was dressed in a Black Watch tartan coat by Alexander McQueen (who was Scottish). November 30th is St. Andrew’€™s Day, Scotland’s National Day so the tartan was a wise choice and a nice gesture.

The coat is very similar to this on Net-A-Porter and it seems to be a modified piece of it.

This version of the coat is available for private orders on Net-A-Porter for $7220, I'm afraid the Duchess's gesture was quite pricey!

Kate wore the Aquatalia Rhumba boots for the 5000th time, she also wore the sapphire earrings that were Princess Diana's.

I really love this look, I don't even care about the $7000 price tag on the coat, she looked amazing, had great fun, students were glad to see her, all is happy... probably except for Prince Charles who will pay for the coat..

What do you think about these four appearances? Which is your favorite?

  1. Love that great smile!!

    but it's time to retire those boots ... they're so tiresome to look at ..she can afford a different updated pair

  2. forget her attempt at fashion, she's work shy ...that's all I need to know! women everywhere work through their pregnancy but not lazy Kate who's already having maternity leave at3 months pregnant ...

  3. Oh my goodness, who buys clothes for her?! Granny-style dresses, kindergarten-style coats, horrible make up and hair. She's young and rich and looks tragically. Mostly compared to Lady Di,who was totally stunning and charming.I miss you,Diana!
