In case you were in need of any more coat inspo for the winter months.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for heir first joint event of 2020 today.
The pair visited Bradford to meet with a number of organizations “which support the community and promote cohesion within it,” according to the Kensington Royal Twitter page. The visit saw them meet with students, as well as apprentices at My Lahore restaurant (where they made mango and kulfi milkshakes). They also stopped by the Khidmat Center, which works with vulnerable members of the community, and Near Neighbors, an organization that helps to foster relationships and trust between people in the neighborhood.
For the outing, Kate Middleton chose a military-inspired, army green coat from one of her favorite brands, Alexander McQueen. She teamed the statement piece with a croc-embossed bag from Aspinal, a checked midi dress from Zara (you can shop a similar version here), Gianvito Rossi heels and Zeen earrings, In fact, the outfit was a highlights reel of many of her go-to brands. McQueen, in particular, has been a favorite of the Duchess’ since wearing a custom wedding dress by Sarah Burton for her wedding back in 2011. Prince William also opted for cool winter hues of navy and burgundy in his ensemble.

It is expected that details will be released by week’s end.
