Kate Middleton's modern makeover continued on Tuesday morning as she stepped out to visit the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in Kennington wearing a pair of wide-leg trousers and a statement shirt. The engagement is the second time the Duchess of Cambridge has ditched royal-appropriate dresses for the smart trouser shape, the first time was during a trip to Cyprus in December 2018. Although seeing Kate in a contemporary trouser is rare, the duchess styled the Jigsaw item perfectly, offsetting the androgynous bottom half with a feminine pussy-bow shirt.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry - to the nuptials of lesser-known royal relatives, like Princess Diana's niece Celia McCorquadale, who wore the family Spencer Tiara on her big day. Now there's more to come, as Lady Gabriella Windsor is set to marry her financier husband Thomas Kingston this spring. Lady Gabriella’s wedding is likely to be a more low-key affair than the major public spectacles we witnessed last year, but she has chosen the same venue: St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
In September last year, the Duchess of Sussex arrived at the Wellchild awards in what was possibly her least ‘royal’ outfit yet. Her sleek, immaculately tailored black trouser suit was simultaneously demurely understated and outrageously glamorous; she could either have been stepping into a job interview or onto the set of a Helmut Newton photo shoot.
