Many of the globe’s most stylish royals have donned chequered outfits this year, including Princess Olympia of Greece, Beatrice Borromeo and Princess Victoria of Sweden.

And although this timeless design will never be outdated, the Princess of Wales has schooled us all on styling it with what could be 2023’s most coveted silhouette.

Princess Kate visited Wales with her husband the Prince of Wales on February 28 after announcing a new collaboration with Life at No.27 to help create therapy allotments and gardens that will provide mental health support for communities across the south of the country. Their Royal Highnesses visited Brynawel Rehabilitation Centre where the first garden will be developed.

Princess Kate wore a Zara A-line skirt

For the occasion Kate sported a monochrome look that encapsulated her signature style. She wore a bespoke cream Alexander McQueen coat – another to add to her enviable AM coat collection, with a tonal turtleneck jumper and a houndstooth a-line midi skirt. To round off in the most quintessential Kate Middleton style possible, she wore bespoke black suede boots from Gianvito Rossi. We know she can’t get enough of her brown suede ones, so it’s only right she got the same ones in a different colourway. We wonder if she’ll do this with her Camilla Elphick flats?

Keeping on her string of mixing lustrous designer pieces with high-street heroes, the Princess’ donned a £19.99 midi skirt from Zara. And as much as we’re obsessed with the price point of her skirt, we also love how current the silhouette is. A-Line was a huge trend at London Fashion Week this month, proving that purchasing one similar now will keep you trendy from Spring/Summer to Autumn/Winter.
