LK Bennett To Reissue Kate Pieces, Summer Fashion For Kate, Royal Wedding Anniversary Coins + More

Whilst waiting to see what Kate chooses to wear next, the fashionable reporters over at Grazia have given us a glimpse into how the Duchess would look in this seasons most stunning pieces. The first mock-up that caught my eye featured Kate wearing red, by designers Roland Mouret and Antonio Berardi. Obviously Kate would opt to wear these in a more conservative manner, I think red is really her colour. Kate is joined by actress Carey Mulligan wearing Roland Mouret.

During the Royal visit to Leicester Kate judged several pairs of shoes created by students at De Montfort University and selected a pair of blue suede shoes covered in lace and delicate beading by design student Becka Hunt. 

Should Kate choose to wear the blue shoes what could she team them with? Below we see her in three beautiful pieces by Nina Ricci, Carven and Erdem. Blue is very much on trend this season,  There are often Amazon promos and codes available for designer fashions and cosmetics commoners can purchase :)

To really show off the shoes while staying true to her classic style, a white dress would be the ideal choice. Below we see Kate wearing Andrew Gn, Blumarine and Erdem. 

Kate looked beautiful in Calgary wearing a primrose yellow Jenny Packham dress. Will we see her wear yellow again this summer? Below we see Kate looking trendy in Mulberry, Erdem and Burberry. I simply love the lace Erdem not sure the other two would be to Kate's taste. Which of these looks would you like to see Duchess Kate wear?


Some very exciting news for fans of Kate's style. LK Bennett has announced they will be reissuing the Davina dress in teal and the Darwin shearling jacket in black, brown and new colour camel.(With thanks to What Kate Wore) Both pieces will be available on the website from mid April. If you would like to go on the waiting list please email your desired size and information to 


The Treasury of the British Virgin Islands have launched two new coins to mark the thirtieth birthdays and first wedding anniversary of William and Kate. The coins which are struck by the Pobjoy mint in the UK and carry informal portraits of the couple in their evening wedding attire. We see Kate wearing her Sarah Burton satin gown with a soft angora cardigan. The site also features coins commemorating Her Majesty's diamond jubilee.

Duchess Kate's sartorial choices have been revitalising British fashion and now front of house staff at Kate's London home, Kensington Palace are following in her footsteps. The new uniforms designed by Jaeger were unveiled as part of the royal residence's £12 million transformation. The 128 year old firm created bright red, double breasted blazers teamed with black trousers and knee length skirts.

Design director Stuart Stockdale said

"I have been inspired by centuries of royal and court style and married this with modernity to offer the palace staff a bespoke uniform that they can feel proud of and enjoy wearing."

What are your thoughts on the designer uniforms?


Prince Harry recently completed his celebrated royal tour in Brazil. During his time there he candidly spoke about his sister Kate and Olympic plans.

"The Three of us, my brother and my sister, will be as involved in the Olympics as we can be. I thought you were going to ask me if Kate was giving me fashion tips! She's not giving me tips yet."

I thought it a truly touching comment by Harry. No doubt Kate also think of the Prince as a brother. Looking forward to seeing future jubilee engagement with William, Harry and Kate.

Kate and the Queen feature on the current cover of Hello magazine.


Tomorrow Prince Charles will introduce Kate to his charity Children and Arts. See you all then :)
