The Duchess of Cambridge is bringing back an 80's trend in her latest royal appearance.


Duchess Catherine channelled the 80's when she wore a fitted black suit for her appearance at the National History Museum on Monday - featuring epic shoulder pads.

Catherine, 38, kept thing simple yet nailed effortless glamour in the black combo, which she teamed with stunning pearl earrings, a gorgeous smokey-eye and her classic bouncy blow-dry hair style.
