Kate Middleton is really playing all the hits with this ‘fit. Stefon voice: It has everything. It’s a pantsuit, which we know the Princess of Wales loves. It’s in a bright color. It’s monochrome. And it’s an outfit repeat.
For her November 15 appearance at the Shaping Us National Symposium in London, Kate wore a grape-colored double-breasted suit from Emilia Wickstead, which I believe we’ve seen the princess wear in 2021. Two years ago, Princess Kate styled this suit with a ponytail and a black turtleneck, but this time she skipped the bottom layer and wore the blazer buttoned instead.
She doesn’t seem to have mixed it up when it comes to footwear, however. In September of 2021, Kate Middleton paired this straight-legged suit with a pair of blue suede pumps, which she appears to have repeated here. The Princess of Wales kept her accessories to a minimum for this appearance, wearing just a pair of sapphire drop earrings and no necklace. As she usually does, Kate wore her famous hair in its signature blowout.
In the speech she delivered at the symposium, Kate said, per Marie Claire, “This is not just about the youngest children in our society, who are, by their very nature, vulnerable. It is also about the many young people and adults who are suffering. We must do more than simply meet the short term needs of these individuals. We must also look at creating long term, preventative change. And that takes us right back to the beginning.”
