Kate received an official welcome from Denmark’s Queen Margrethe on the second day of her trip and wore a fabulous Catherine Walker coat for the occasion. Kate's coat is known as the 'Marine' and is described online as "A sharply tailored gunmetal grey Birdseye cashmere and wool coat, with black lapels and cuffs, based on an 18th century naval frockcoat." So chic.

When we saw Kate in this dress coat, we had a distinct feeling we had seen something similar before. And sifting through our archives, we spied Kate's late mother-in-law, Princess Diana wearing a very similar style back in 1984.

Kate looked so chic in her Catherine Walker coat in Denmark 

Diana was photographed stepping out of a Jaguar for a visit to Barnardos children's charity, of which she was Patron. Her dress coat was of the Herringbone variety, with a similar contrasting black velvet collar, just like Kate's. Amazing!
