Kate Middleton's festive tartan outfit brought the Christmas joy

We love a festive royal outfit

The Duchess of Cambridge looked beautiful in festive red and green as she departed Euston Station ahead of her tour on the royal train on Sunday evening - tartan scarf included!

Kate looked the Christmas picture in her Alexander McQueen coat and checked scarf, which she teamed with her suede Ralph Lauren boots and Grace Hang 'Love Letter' bag.

Her plaid winter warmer dates back to 2016, when the royal couple headed to Canada on their tour. From independent brand York Scarves, it's called the 'Canadian Tartan Maple Leaf Scarf'. 


Kate looked gorgeous in her festive scarf

It has sadly already sold out since Kate reappeared wearing it, but the brand do stock a very similar version for just £14.95 on Etsy.

The Duchess also sported her mystery new pearl earrings, which some fans believe to be a past-season buy from Accessorize. She also sported them in a video filmed at the Natural History Museum in October.

Kate and William were certainly in the festive spirit on Sunday! As they embarked on their three-day tour of Britain, they asked 80s pop star Shakin' Stevens to perform his festive hit Merry Christmas Everyone for transport workers at the station - as they thanked them for keeping trains running during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Duchess swayed along to the music as they watched from a balcony above the concourse and waved to people below.

Sweetly, the couple also penned a message for the 'All On The Board' Instagram page, sharing a snapshot of the whiteboard on the Kensington Royal account.


William and Kate thanked transport staff for their hard work

The signed passage read: "Thank you to transport workers everywhere for keeping the country moving throughout this difficult year. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!"
