Kate Wears Zara for Princes’ Charities Friday Forum

We share a very brief post, yesterday Kate and William attended the Princes’ Charities Forum.

Kate wore Zara’s ‘Blazer with Zips‘ a blue top or dress can be seen underneath the jacket. Credit for identifying this goes to WKW Facebook friend Stella, as well as Gwen.

The jacket is a wool blend with acrylic, polyester and nylon fibers. Here is a another photo of the blazer, better showing the detail and fabric texture. Thank you Simona on FB for letting us know about the detailed picture.

The blazer was a summer item, it is sold out at most online Zara sites, but several readers have had luck finding it by contacting local Zara stores. It was originally priced at £79.99, $129 USD, when in stock this summer.

Kate and William were at the Prince’s Charities Forum, it is the first time the Duchess has attended the Forum, held every two years. More from the POW website:

Forum meetings are held biannually and provide an opportunity for the Charities to update The Princes on their recent events and ventures, and to talk about their strategic objectives.

The Forum has evolved into a means of collaborative activity between the participating Charities and organisations. Opportunities to support each other are explored at meetings, relationships are developed and bilateral work is initiated.

The meetings were held at BAFTA headquarters, many readers will recall from this summer’s gala BAFTA dinner in Los Angeles that Prince William is president of the group.

I love that she's wearing a jacket that was only £79.99. Honestly, enough said... right. She has loads of cash but chooses simple, stylish, and affordable quality pieces. Love her for it!

I like the jacket, but then I enjoy Zara's designs -- interesting, unusual, but not high-priced. I'm puzzled by an earlier comment about the blouse being "patterned". I can barely see the blouse (or dress), and since the jacket is a solid color, I'm not sure why a patterned blouse would be a problem. Moreover, the design is youthfully "different," not aging.
