Yesterday, Princess Kate paid a quiet homage to Princess Diana and sustainability while sporting one of her most daring outfits yet.
The Prince and Princess of Wales supported two different teams when attending the Wales vs. England Six Nations rugby tournament at Principality Stadium in Cardiff yesterday. The princess donned a Catherine Walker red and white houndstooth coat dress that she had previously worn on her and Prince William’s tour of Scandinavia in 2018.
The double-breasted coat had an A-line shape, and Kate kept warm by wearing a black turtleneck underneath and opaque black tights. She complemented the look with a little white Mulberry purse, a pair of black ankle boots by Aquatalia with silver accents, and white gold and diamond earrings by Mappin and Webb.
Also, there was a wink to Princess Diana in the outfit. The late royal debuted the ensemble on December 23, 1990, while accompanying Prince William to the baptism of his cousin, the recently engaged Princess Eugenie. Franco Moschino himself had designed it. She subsequently made two more public appearances wearing the Moschino suit: in 1992, after a black ribbon had been substituted for the white and black ribbon lacing the jacket, and in 1991, when she was on a royal visit of Canada and wore the same veiled red bonnet with it.
