The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at a sailing roadshow in East London today (16 June) looking as smart and stylish as usual.
Continuing her reputation for reusing and rewearing her favourite pieces from her royal working wardrobe, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in some of her go-to staples today with a new pair of noticeably nautical themed trousers. From her chic ensemble, what really caught our eye was Catherine’s brand new accesories, namely her £35 earrings. Yes really, £35, we haven’t missed a couple of zeros!
The earrings are from Mirabelle, they make handmade, designer jewellery which is fair trade, unique and unusual.
Kate’s earrings are the Lolita Gold Plated Loop Earrings. They are made up of three small gold plated hoops and measure 4cm in length. The hooks are gold plated sterling silver and the hoops are 22 carat gold on brass. As with all of Mirabelle items, the earrings are handmade and fair trade.
The earrings are still in stock, but, at the bargain price of only £35 they are sure to sell out once everyone cottons on. If you want a little Duchess inspired jewellery in your wardrobe, you’ll have to be quick.

For the rest of Kate’s outfit she opted for a pair of J Crew trousers with nautical button details and a simple white blazer from Zara which she first wore during the royal tour of Canada last year. She paired the outfit with the same H&M cream top and pair of low-heeled courts which she wore last summer on the same trip to Canada. There are lots of white blazers on the high street making it super easy to copy Kate’s style. Pair the blazer with a simple t-shirt and a pair of jeans or cropped trousers and you’ll have a great smart-casual outfit that will see you through the summer.
The Duchess of Cambridge was on duty at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre in her role as Patron of the 1851 Trust.
The 1851 Trust roadshows hope to inspire primary and secondary school pupils into STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths). It uses the work of Sir Ben Ainslie’s British America’s Cup challenge to do this.
Students from four East London schools took part in today’s roadshow and were even given the opportunity to get on the water! The Duchess joined the pupils in an educational treasure hunt where they needed to answer questions on science and technology, Land Rover BAR and the America’s Cup.
