Kate Middleton's tartan coat caught the attention of fans who loved the Princess' festive look that paired bold colors of green and blue.


Catherine, the Princess of Wales, attended an important event in London recently as she dedicated a tree to mark the memory of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The event took place at Westminster Abbey in Dean’s Yard, and the Princess shoveled the last few spadefuls of soil onto the cherry tree and unveiled the plaque.

The plaque read, "This wild cherry tree, a gift from the Duchy of Cornwall, was dedicated in memory of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales on 14th December 2022."

The tree forms part of The Queen's Green Canopy, an initiative to mark the late Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which has now become all the more significant since her passing in September.

While attending this outdoor event in the cold December weather in London, the Princess made sure to wrap up warmly and paired a festive tartan coat with long blue suede boots, and an olive green turtleneck knitted dress.

The warm tartan coat was the perfect festive style and this isn't the first time that Kate has worn this coat. Previously the Princess wore this tartan look in November 2021 for Remembrance with the Royal British Legion and the Scouts.

This longline sophisticated wool coat has a more-relaxed silhouette than some a super-fitted tailoring. The coat is perfect to layer with a classic tee or styled with our super-chunky knitwear. Made from the finest UK woven wools, this coat has been hand cut and proudly made in England.

Although this event took place a few weeks ago, this was a more low-key engagement for the Princess. As Christmas gets closer, the royal calendar is slowing down for a lot of senior royals and many of them will not be seen until the new year. 

The next big engagement that many are looking forward to is King Charles's Christmas speech, which marks the first time in 70 years that the speech will not be delivered by the Queen, plus the first time the new monarch will be delivering this message at Christmas. This is a huge milestone and many are looking forward to seeing what the King will have to say about the past year, which has been a real rollercoaster for the royals.
