Duchess Kate: White wool and silk-blend twill peplum coat by Alexander McQueen

White wool and silk-blend twill peplum coat. It features a V neckline, concealed button fastenings through double-breasted front, three-quarter sleeves and it kicks out at the waist into a rippling peplum that softly folds at the back. By Alexander McQueen.
