Custom made icy blue silk and satin single breasted straight coat belted at the waist. It is by the British designer Christopher Kane.
I can’t decide if I like this coat or if I don’t. It looks very regal and fitted for a Princess but on the edge of being a bit too much. I would however say that it is a hit on the Duchess, the colour is delightful.

Vintage-inspired double wool crepe belted, royal blue coat dress featuring three quarter length sleeves, a collar with notch cut outs, and wide pleats at the front and back. By the British fashion label Eponine.
This coat dress is elegant and is beautifully tailored but I don’t find the three-quarter sleeves comfortable especially for a winter garment.
1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore this coat on 11th January 2017 to visit the Anna Freud National Centre in London and later the Child Bereavement UK Centre in East London.
On 3rd April 1983 during an official trip in Australia, Prince Charles, accompanied by Princess Diana, travelled to Warwick Farm to play in a polo match, his first for six months. For the Princess, though, there was an ulterior motive. At the match she met Ann Bolton, her flatmate from bachelor-girl days, who was now resident in Australia. The Princess was wearing a pale blue and white stripes dress with a white sailor collar by Catherine Walker.
