Kate Middleton and Prince William kept up their busy schedule on the royal tour in New Zealand this past weekend. They made what seemed like a bajillion official appearances (seriously, when do these kids get a break?), which meant Kate debuted a slew of new and repeat outfits, ranging from an Erdem dress to a shirt from the Gap. Let’s play catchup, shall we?
On Saturday, for a visit to the Rainbow Place Children’s Hospice, Kate opted for a pre-fall 2013 wool crepe coat by Erdem and black suede pumps from Episode. Ever the gentleman, Wills shielded Kate from the rain—but don’t you ever wonder if they have people to do that for them?
On Sunday, Kate started out the day in a pretty blue pleated coat dress by one of her favorite designers, Emilia Wickstead, who hails from New Zealand. Kate accessorized with a matching Jane Taylor hat and the diamond fern brooch she wore when she landed. Kate actually really loves the style of the dress because she has another version in dusty rose—which she’s worn twice already.
For her second engagement of the day—coaching a pee-wee team at Regal Rippa Rugby Day at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium—Kate went cazh in a cream waffle-knit sweater by Jonathan Saunders and skinny jeans. Adorable.
Final stop of the day: the Amisfield Winery in Queenstown. Kate changed into the same Zara blazer and skinny jeans she wore on Friday. But she switched out the Breton shirt for a fitted boyfriend gingham button-down from the Gap. She really does shop at the Gap!
Here’s a close-up of her shirt and most-likely strategic glass of wine to show the world that she’s not preggo.
And on Monday, Kate re-wore a belted red skirt suit by Luisa Spagnoli to visit Christchurch, a city devastated by an earthquake in 2011. The two-tone palette of her outfit pays homage to the city, as red and black are the official colors for the city’s region.
Kate just can’t resist a good game! The Duchess showed her sporty side once again on this trip by playing cricket in her skirt suit.
