The Duchess showed her support for the Welsh rugby team today, wearing a vibrant red coat paired with black accessories.
The Duke and Duchess were at their final engagement of a whirlwind 2-day visit to Paris. The match was a fierce battle between the Welsh and French teams at the Six Nations Rugby Match. William is Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union. Previously he was vice-patron, but last December the Queen turned the post over to him; it was one of many patronages HM passed on to younger royals.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge watched as Wales lost to France in the final second during an unprecedented Six Nations’ clash in Paris.
William, patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, and his wife watched as the game ran into its 100th minute and France scored a last-minute try.
From Rebecca English’s Daily Mail story, referencing Prince William in this portion:
…he looked a bag of nerves as France pushed for the line in the dying seconds and Wales desperately held on in a bid to secure the win. To his dismay, France scored in the 100th minute and converted to win 20-18.
I believe this is after the match as the duo were preparing to leave.
Kate was in the Carolina Herrera coat first worn in Canada. The piece is crafted from a double-faced wool/cashmere fabric blend; it showcases double-breasted styling, princess seams, and a fit and flare silhouette.
Beneath the coat, Kate wore something with a mock neck or turtleneck (polo neck) collar.
The Duchess also wore black suede booties to the match that look very much like this pair, first noted during the 2014 visit to New York.
A closer look.
Kate wore the Cartier Trinity earrings seen at engagements earlier today.
