The Duchess Of Cambridge visits Bradford
Earlier this year, before the UK lockdown, began the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge visited Bradford, in what was their first official engagement of 2020.
Their Royal Highnesses met representatives from local employers and businesses who are helping young people into employment before meeting members of the public who had gathered outside City Hall to greet them. For this occasion, Catherine opted for a dark green long length tailored coat from Alexander McQueen, teamed with the Aspinal of London Midi Mayfair bag.
This isn’t the first time the Duchess has been photographed with this particular bag. Kate has been using the Midi Mayfair bag since 2018. Unfortunately, this exact bag is still full price at £595 but the slightly smaller version is available with 30% off.
