The Duchess of Cambridge Brought Out Her Most Festive Outfits For the Royal Train Tour
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three day tour aboard the Royal Train takes the couple through England, Scotland, and Wales and is a way to "pay tribute to the incredible work of individuals and organisations that have gone above and beyond in response to the coronavirus pandemic,"
according to Kensington Palace. And whilst the focus of the tour is on the amazing work of the charities and frontline and essential workers, we couldn't help but notice Catherine's many festive outfits on the trip. From cosy fair isle jumpers and red and green tartan scarves to the array of statement-making coats she's pulled from her wardrobe, the Duchess's ensembles for this minitour are definitely making us feel merry and bright.
From the very start of the tour — when the couple arrived at Euston Station to start the journey — Catherine showed off her festive sartorial spirit, accessorising her favourite forest-green Alexander McQueen coat with a red-and-green tartan scarf by York Scarves.
Later than evening, for a visit to FareShare Greater Manchester — part of FareShare UK, an organisation that redistributes surplus food from food businesses to charities, community centres, and homeless shelters across the UK — Catherine gave us a royal take on the Christmas jumper, wearing her navy blue Hobbs London Bianca Coat over a fair isle jumper from a capsule collection between Scottish retailer Brora and Troy London, the latter of which is one of the Duchess's go-to brands. (The jumper is still available for £195, although it won't ship until March.)
On the second day of the tour, the Royal Train brought the Cambridge's to Cardiff, where Catherine stepped out in one of her brightest, most festive outfits yet — her crimson Alexander McQueen coat paired with matching tartan scarf and skirt. Throughout the day, at a stop at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, Catherine swapped the tartan scarf for a tartan face mask from designer Emilia Wickstead.
For their last and final stop, which was at Windsor Castle, Catherine finished with a truly wintery, festive look, dressing up her green Catherine Walker coat with a plush faux fur lapel collar.
