Yesterday, both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex were spotted around London at separate engagements. It’s not unusual for members of the royal family to attend different events on the same day, however there was a similar theme in both outings.
Each of the duchesses opted for a rich burgundy hue in their chosen ensembles, officially giving the colour the royal seal of approval for the season ahead.
Meghan visited the Hubb Community Kitchen to celebrate the success of the cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook, she she helped release back in September. For the outing, Meghan opted for a coat by one of her go-to brands, Club Monaco (it’s the Daylina coat if you’re keen to emulate the look) which she layered over the brand’s Sallyet dress which featured a velvet collar. The look was finished with black tights and boots from Givenchy.
Meanwhile, just hours later sister-in-law Kate was spotted visiting the UCL Developmental Neuroscience Lab at University College in London. Kate recycled a Paule Ka skirt suit for the outing, which she paired with a black turtleneck sweater, Tod’s heels and a Mulberry clutch. Our favourite detail however? The velvet bow adorning her ponytail. Festive season hair = sorted.
So if you find yourself shopping for winter threads, make sure you pick something in maroon.
