Kate Middleton news: Duchess of Cambridge re-wears coat to attend boat naming ceremony

Kate Middleton and Prince William are visiting Birkenhead to officially name the ship the RRS Sir David Attenborough. The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, visited Camel Laid shipyard in Birkenhead, Merseyside accompanied by Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge, for a naming ceremony for Britain’s new polar research ship, which the public voted to call Boaty McBoatface. She was pictured wearing her stunning Alexander McQueen cornflower blue Utility coat for the unveiling – an outfit which she has worn on a number of occasions. Kate has previously been seen stepping out in this coat in 2014 and 2016 to a variety of official engagements.

The coat is currently not in stock, but similar styles can be found online from Alexander McQueen retail from around £2,500. 

Alexander McQueen is a firm favourite for the Duchess – with the fashion house even designing her wedding dress in 2011. 

Today, Kate wore her natural brunette locks down in her trademark side part style, with her fringe swept across her forehead, soft waves, framed her face. 

Opting for a natural glamorous look, the Duchess sported light brown eyeshadow, wind roughed cheeks and a nude matte lip. 

The cornflower blue coat, elegant as ever, which is cinched at the waist, accentuated Kate’s tiny frame. 

Falling to just bellow the knee the blue coat creates a chic and polished silhouette of the Royal. The mum-of-three finished off the look with a pair of diamond earrings and some Gianvito Rossi suede pups that retail at £520 and a new Asprey clutch, the brand’s 1971 Pochette style which retails at £1,850. Prince William opted to wear a navy blue suit and blue tie.

Upon arriving at Camel Laid shipyard the royals were greeted by screaming fans and members of the public as they met with official representatives. 

The royal couple initially started off with a 45 minute tour of the ship and its premises, before then greeting the public.

The Royals were also seen smiling and waving to onlookers from the the ship with Sir Attenborough himself during the naming ceremony.

Prince William and the beloved naturalist and broadcaster Attenborough have worked together on a number of special projects through the years. 

Earlier this year, William was joined by Prince Charles and Prince Harry at the premiere of Netflix’s Our Planet, a series narrated by Attenborough. In January 2019, William and Attenborough shared the stage for a conversation on the environment during the World Economic Forum.

The first time that Kate was spotted wearing the blue coat was back in April 2014 for her trip to New Zealand’s North Island, to Blenheim, located in the South Island where the royals launched a year-long series of events commemoration the First World War at the Bleheim War Memorial. 

The event was to remember those who had died in all wars, and to particularly commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the First World War.
