What Kate Wore Out & About, Updated Schedule for Wednesday’s Nottingham Visit

We want to share a few updates before tomorrow’s Jubilee visit to Nottingham, as well as an updated itinerary for that trip.

Last Friday Kate and her brother James took Lupo and Ella (we believe it is Ella, the Middleton’s dog and Lupo’s mother) for a stroll in Kensington.

Canadian journalist Jocelyn Laidlaw saw the pair and took a photo, sharing it via her Twitter account.

Ms. Laidlaw says she also has a video, that has not yet been posted. Kate wore her familiar Barbour, the waxed Ladies Defence Jacket.

It remains out of stock at Country Attire, but Joseph M. shows it in stock at £119.94, about $190 USD at today’s exchange rates. Kate was also in her skinny jeans and sneakers/trainers.

On Thursday night Kate and William went to see one of the summer’s hottest movies, “The Avengers” at a theater in Kensington. A young lady also seeing the movie, Hessa Magunda, tweeted her excitement.

Because this is one of those times we believe the couple had every right to expect privacy we aren’t posting the photo someone snapped with their camera phone, but we can tell you what Kate was wearing.

Kate looked to be in her J Brand 811 skinny jeans, seen on many occasions, as well as a black top or sweater, and a black gilet (vest) over the top. We believe Kate wore a piece she thought about, or perhaps even planned on wearing to the Jubilee concert last Monday. When the Palace originally released the information on what Kate wore, the message was that it was a “black shearling Alice Temperley coat over a patterned blue and purple dress from Whistles”. However, shortly after the original announcement a change was made to say Kate was wearing a McQueen jacket.

With thanks to Kate in Waiting, here is what we think The Duchess was wearing, the Temperley Leather And Shearling Contrast Gilet, we show it in a different color as seen at Flannels.  Again, Kate’s was black.

We also show detail of Temperley’s Sofia coat because it has very similar detailing, offering an idea of how the trim looks in black.


And now a look at the plan for tomorrow’s Nottingham trip. Unfortunately, Prince Philip will not be accompanying the group as planned, he is still recovering from an infection. The Queen is expected to arrive in Nottingham at 10:05am (5:05am EDT), she is traveling by train. HM is to be greeted by William and Kate, I do not know how the couple is getting to the area. Following is a brief rundown of the scheduled events as described on the My Nottingham website:

  • after the 10:05 meeting at the train station, both parties will travel by car to the Old Market Square
  • the Royals are expected to arrive in the Old Market Square at 10.10am and will spend time greeting the crowds, before going into the Council House to meet the Lord Lieutenants of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and invited guests
  • Crowds will get another glimpse of the special visitors when they appear on the Council House balcony to acknowledge the crowd
  • The Royal party will then leave by car at approximately 10.55am… before heading to Vernon Park in Basford which has been granted Queen Elizabeth 2 Field Status, meaning it will be protected for future generations to enjoy
  • The Royal Party will arrive at Vernon Park along Vernon Avenue at approximately 11.00 am for a re-dedication of Vernon Park under the auspices of the QE2 Fields in Trust organisation, of which Prince William is patron.
  • The Queen will unveil a plaque to mark the park’s new status and the Royal party will enjoy sporting and musical performances by children from schools and groups from Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby and Derbyshire

City officials are understandably excited about the visit.

Below we see an image of Vernon Park taken this afternoon, as shared by Fields in Trust, working hard getting everything ready for tomorrow’s visit. Fields in Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to protecting and preserving outdoor spaces, thus the import of Vernon Park being granted its new status, it will be protected and preserved for future generations.

The palace releases information on what Catherine is going to wear before she even wears it!?


Friday 15th of June 2012

Hi Shelley! They release the info about just about the time the Royals are seen publicly, when they walk on a stage, enter an event, etc., be it the Queen, Kate, Camilla, or others. It is only the brand name (Whistles, Stewart Parvin, that sort of thing), never a style name or year of manufacture, and it is only for official appearances.

That black Temperely is GORGEOUS!

I wear hats like that. She seems to be the happiest and most relaxed in casual outfits. I wish my pups were as well behaved.

So gracious of you to respect the couple's privacy, such a rare thing nowadays! Kate is magnificent from head to toe, whether she's dressed for a walk in the city, or at a presentation for the Queen's Jubilee. She is the epitome of class!

Interesting that Kate may have originally planned on wearing the gilet with the Temperley dress at the concert. My one criticism of Kate's outfits during the Jubilee was that I thought her outfit for the concert was a bit too business like and was hoping that she would have worn something a little "outside the box". certainly the gilet would have given the dress some edge,and while I do like the look of a pretty dress contrasted with a tougher, edgier jacket the contrast in the fabric weights (shearling v chiffon) might have been too much for that pairing to have been entirely successful.

Funny. Someone else thought the Whistles dress was itself too edgy and "rough". She didn't like its exposed zipper.
