Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, Wears High Street to First Solo Public Engagement

One of my favourite places in the world are the hallowed halls of the National Portrait Gallery in London. I have spent many happy hours there. So imagine how delighted I was when Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, decided that it was to be one of her first patronages and public engagements. Alone. Without her husband at her side. Yay.
And so it was for the opening of the Lucien Freud exhibition last night, where Kate turned up in a stylish swing dress coat, in grey wool, belted, and paired with a pair of her usual Jimmy Choos.
The dress coat was by high street brand Jesire, and was probably purchased from David Jones on Sloane Square. And didn't she look lovely. Appropriately pretty but casual for an art gathering and fitted beautifully. It didn't set the world on fire, but nor should it have. As usual, somehow without explaination, it was a perfectly pitched ensemble. Well played Kate. Again.
