The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton received worldwide praise for her debut appearances in India.

Kicking off the trip, Kate stepped out sporting an eye-catching peplum blouse and skirt design from Alexander McQueen. While the fashion house is British, the outfit still gave a nod to India with its traditional tear drop-shaped print.

She accessorised the outfit with a £165 clutch bag from Russell & Bromley and L.K Bennett shoes with a price tag of £175.

Kate later slipped into a mid-length pink and green chiffon dress by Mumbai designer Anita Dongre.

An aide revealed that the Duchess was keen to fly the flag for local fashion during the trip. “She wanted to wear a local designer at the earliest possible opportunity,” they said, adding that the choice of dress was “a tribute to Mumbai’s wonderful design talent.”

The second day saw Kate sporting an elegant cream, wool crepe dress by one of her favourite designers, Emilia Wickstead.

Originally on sale for £1760, the dress features a collar and chest pocket detailing. The silhouette, with a fitted bodice and full sweeping skirt, is one that the Duchess is known to favour, and on this occasion she completed her look with a pair of Rupert Sanderson heels and a Mulberry England Bayswater clutch bag.

We’re used to seeing Kate dazzling in designer dresses and showstopping jewels. But the royal proved she can make casual look just as chic as she headed off on safari as part of her and Prince William’s royal tour of India on Wednesday morning.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton turned to one of her favourite designers for her highly-anticipated arrival in Bhutan on Thursday.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, made a dazzling first impression in Bhutan as she stepped out for the royal couple's first engagement in the country.

Kate roundedoff her day of engagements in Bhutan with a private dinner with the King of Bhutan. The royal kept it casual in a floaty maxidress from Tory Burch, an American designer. The gown is a classic column shape and embroidered with jewel-toned flowers and beading.


With a six-hour trek ahead of her Kate opted for comfortable and easy-to-wear gear. But the ever stylish Kate managed to make casual look chic as she began the gruelling hike in Bhutan.

Kate, who is naturally sporty, looked more than ready to take on the challenge. The Duchess wore jeans, a white shirt and a dark brown leather waistcoat designed by one of her favourite outdoor British brands Really Wild, which she has worn in the past. She completed her outfit with her trusty Penelope Chilver riding boots, another item she has owned for some time.
