Princess Kate has worn jacket-trouser combos sporadically for years, interspersed with jeans, skirts and dresses. But at recent royal engagements, she has been spotted solely in suits.
She looked incredible in a navy Alexander McQueen number for a visit to High Down prison.
For a Royal Navy visit, Kate wore a smart black jacket from Holland Cooper. Then, she rocked a camel Roland Mouret suit ensemble to visit Streets of Growth, a not-for-profit youth intervention charity.
Miranda said: “Since we first ‘met’ Kate, as the young, fresh-faced girlfriend of Prince William, we have witnessed her confidence blossom and her style transform, from the pretty girl next door to the elegant wife of our future King, to the infinitely more regal and refined Princess of Wales.
“Her wardrobe has adjusted to suit her ever-evolving role within the family, and its latest incarnation has garnered much attention, but perhaps not for the reasons you would expect.
“It was announced earlier this year that the Palace would no longer release details of what and who Kate is wearing, most probably in an attempt to focus the worlds media on the important work the Royals conduct rather than their fashion choices, but despite this recent lack of information, Kate is still hailed as a fashion icon globally, with the ‘Kate effect’ bringing good fortune to the brands she champions.
“Perhaps this is why Kate’s image seems to have evolved yet again, with the Princess wearing more and more suits in her latest role, and wearing them exclusively for Royal Appointments since she returned from the summer break.
