The Royal FASHION Tour

Today our two favorite royals hopped on a plane and headed for Canada to begin the Royal Tour. Since Kate is such a style icon and will be wearing upwards of 40 different outfits I figured it was a must to show what she is wearing. If you love the Duchess and her style as much as I do... you'll want to save this blog post. As I will be updating it with pictures of the royal couple, and letting you know what Kate is wearing.

The Duchess of Cambridge had stated that she did not want to accept free clothing. However rumor has it that she may be borrowing some of the clothes that she will be wearing on the Royal Tour.
 {Boarding the plane to Canada}

As the Duchess boarded the plane with Prince William to Canada she was designer decked out. She also channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw with her Manolo Blahnik stiletto pumps. I am definitely thinking some of these items were borrowed... What do you think? Personally I feel like this outfit is "too old for her" what are your thoughts?

Spotted! Some of Kate's luggage which features a Cath Kidston bag and what looks like a Longchamp bag maybe?

  1. I love the dress! But it does seem like all of the items together are a bit severe for someone her age - if that makes sense!

  2. I agree with fittingbackin. The outfit is gorgeous but it seems a little too severe for a plane ride! I always imagine jet setting to be something chic and beige. :)

    I love looking at what she wears though. She is an STYLE ICON!

  16. Thanks for rounding up all these photos for us! I liked all the outfits except the first one and the black and white polka-dot dress. She is sooo skinny (which is especially obvious in the blue lace and nautical drop-waist dress) but gorgeous as always

  17. Great job with all those looks! I love the cream drop waist sleevless dress she wore, perfect! Hate the sailor inspired dress, doens't flatter her figure at all, but i get it was for a theme.
