The Royal Tour kicked off in a stylish way today as the Duchess of Cambridge selected a medley of international designers for her flight to Canada. Below, the Duke and Duchess at Heathrow Airport with James Wright (left), the Canadian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, and Mrs. Wright.
Below, the couple boarding the Royal Canadian Air Force jet that will take them across the Atlantic to Ottawa, Canada.
Another view of the Duchess at Heathrow.
The Duchess selected a jacket from Canadian label Smythe; oddly enough, it is the very blazer we featured last night in our post predicting what Kate might wear. The blazer is $575 at Revolve, $357 at Saks.
Smythe is based in Toronto and designed by Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe.
She is also wearing the Manon dress by French-born designer Roland Mouret; the brand is headquartered in London.
The dress features an asymmetric neck with criss-cross straps on the back, a modified empire waist and a partially exposed metal zipper. It is made of a silk/cotton blend, a good weight for this time of year and it is widely available as of this writing. That will not be the case in a matter of hours. Above we show it at My Theresa, below at Neiman Marcus (Originally $1975, now $1382).
Kate’s bag is the Mulberry Polly Push Lock in Midnight, crafted of what we would call a pebble grain, available at Mulberry for $1300.
