  • The Duchess of Cambridge always wows when it comes to her wardrobe. And she’s done it again with a chic work wear look.


    Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge stepped out earlier this week for a joint engagement with husband Prince William.

    The royal pair visited the Troubadour White City Theatre in London to attend mental health hotline Shout’s Crisis Volunteer celebration event.

    While they were at the event, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met some of the volunteers for the service, alongside mental health campaigners and supporters.

    And as always the Duchess looked elegant and on-trend in her gorgeous outfit.

    To attend yesterday’s event, the royal went for work-wear chic, pairing slim maroon trousers with a tucked in plain white T-shirt, a simple black belt and black court shoes.

    But the piece that stole the show was the Duchess’s black and white checked blazer.

    The fitted Prince of Wales check print blazer from upmarket brand Smythe was a sleek way to finish off the mum-of-three’s autumnal outfit.

    While the blazer is no longer on sale, similar blazers on the brand’s website come in at around $700 (approx. £550), so we’ve found a couple chic alternatives to get your hands on instead.

    We found this New Look Light Grey Prince of Wales Check Blazer, which is just over £30, so you’re saving hundreds of pounds compared to the Duchess’s choice!
