The sun is out, spring is in the air and what better way to kick off the month of March than with a dose of Middleton-ness? That's right, Kate fans, the Duchess of Cambridge is in our fair capital bright and early this morning to visit Fortnum & Mason with HRH.
She's continuing her royal duties without William, but for this engagement, Kate has the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall by her side. Aww. The trio have just arrived at the luxury store where Queenie will unveil a plaque to mark the renovation of Piccadilly. Kate is wearing a blue coat dress with sheer nude tights and grey suede heels — please excuse our phone snap, we promise to bring more as they arrive.
Of course, the DoC has already nailed several solo outings in recent months. First, she visited a preview of the Lucian Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery wearing a grey coat dress by Jesire, which caused a fashion frenzy as her loyal followers (including Grazia Daily!) frantically searched for its origins. Then she stepped out at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool swathed in a knee-length Hobbs coat, followed by a trip to Oxford when she wore another fit-and-flare number, this time by Orla Kiely.
And there's more to come! On March 8th, Kate will join the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on a trip to Leicester that will launch the royal jubilee tour. As ever, we'll be watching...
