With hubby Prince William performing his RAF duties in The Falklands, we bet it was important for Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton to feel at ease and comfortable during her first solo engagement of the year.
Therefore, it doesn’t surprise us to learn that she attended a private viewing of the Lucian Freud exhibit at The National Portrait Gallery – of which she is a patron – in a gorgeous belted, double breasted, pleated grey coat dress from the high street. From Jesiré to be exact.
Kate accessorised with a trademark clutch bag, 5 inch Jimmy Choo heels and her white gold Asprey Button Pendant – all of which we have seen her wear before.
Sometimes keeping out the chill and looking stylish at the same time is easier said than done, but as usual, Kate has handled it with ease. And it looks like she handled her first solo engagement with ease and confidence too… what a pro!
