The Princess Wears Burberry for Scotland Engagements UPDATED with Boot ID

The Princess Wears Burberry for Scotland Engagements UPDATED with Boot ID

The Duchess of Rothesay was in casual separates for a day of engagements with the Duke of Rothesay in Moray and Inverness, Scotland. 

Today’s engagements focused on organizations supporting rural communities. The couple’s first stop was at a local primary school, where the royals were greeted by students. 

More from Planet Radio’s article.

Another pupil Oliver was told by Kate to go easy on the fist bumps following a half-term accident for the Princess of Wales.

“She said she hurt her finger playing on the trampoline with her kids

“She also said she couldn’t give too many fist bumps or high fives as it hurt!”

The Prince and Princess were at the school to connect with Outfit Moray, “an award-winning charity delivering life-changing outdoor learning and adventure activity programs to young people,” per the organization’s website. They watched some of the young people taking part in a mountain biking exercise. 

More about the organization from The Daily Record’s story

Outfit Moray supports young people aged between eight and 18 and has worked with more than 16,000 youngsters since its creation in 2003. It runs a large range of activities including mountain biking, paddlesports, rock climbing, archery and bushcraft.

The Princess consoled one rider who fell off his bike.

Here is a quick video of her chatting with the young man. 

Then the pair went for a ride on the course.

They spoke to the chief executive of the charity and a group of schoolchildren before boarding their bikes, with William asking children questions including what sports they enjoy and what football teams they support.

He was later overhead to say he found a see-saw on a bike ‘tricky’, but both he and Kate managed to complete the circuit unscathed, encouraged by shouts of ‘Go on, William’ from well-wishers.

They also spent time speaking with well-wishers.

Kensington Palace posted on social media after the engagement. Their next stop was about 15 minutes away at Brodieshill Farm, a family-run enterprise.

They were at the farm to learn about “…efforts being made to better support the mental health and wellbeing of young people,” per a Palace news release.

The news release also notes the farm has “a space for young children to explore and learn… an indoor and outdoor area for child-led play where families, including those based at nearby RAF Kinloss and RAF Lossiemouth, can focus and reconnect with their children, and get together regularly as a group.”

The couple also met with young farmers.

At Brodiehill Farm, they met members of the Lower Speyside Young Farmers group and representatives from Farmstrong Scotland.

The group has recently taken part in the “Are ewe okay?” campaign, led by the Scottish Association of Young Farmer Clubs, encouraging members to talk about mental health and break down stigma associated with the subject.

The final engagement of the day was at DAY1, described by Kensington Palace as “a Highland-based charity which provides mentoring, training, personal development and employability services to vulnerable young people.”

The organization offers a year-long mentoring program that helps disengaged youngsters build resilience and achieve their potential, noting on its website that “Since 2005, 93% of young people matched to a DAY1 mentor have achieved a positive destination such as work, further education or training.”

DAY1 owns the Inverness Kart Raceway, where its Automotive Skills apprenticeships are based.

More on today’s visit from this Northern Times story.

The Prince of Wales revealed his passion for motorsports and all things mechanical in Inverness – and joked he would have loved the chance to take on wife Kate around Inverness Kart Raceway’s indoor circuit during a visit to the site today.

The Duke of Rothesay talked light-heartedly of his and the Princess of Wales’ fierce “competitive streaks” at the close of an hour and a half visit to the youth mentoring charity DAY1 and said they would have loved to tackle the kart circuit in a race.

We return to The Northern Times piece

Dylan Mackay (13), a third year at Inverness Royal Academy, said: “I’ve been here a year and a half and it has been brilliant getting on the track, meeting with like-minded folk and learning new skills. It has given me a lot of confidence. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to stand and chat to the royal couple and probably wouldn’t have been able to not so long ago, but they were very down-to-earth and they chatted away very easily. It was all very light-hearted.

“They were first class to us, a lovely couple.”

Here is one more photo from today’s engagements, the Princess meeting a little girl with angel wings. 

Now for our look at what Kate wore today.

We begin with her jacket, a past-season piece by Burberry, the label’s Check Diamond Quilted Checked Jacket. The garment showcases the brand’s signature check in a wool/polyester fabric. The jacket has a fitted silhouette with a nipped-in waist, angled front pockets, bias trim, goldtone front snaps, and a black corduroy spread collar. Thank you to Middleton Maven for this ID.

A closer look at the collar, pockets, and rubber logo patch at the cuff.

Beneath the jacket, the Princess wore a turtleneck we’d not seen before. While it’s difficult to tell without seeing more of the sweater, Middleton Maven suggests it is the Polo Ralph Lauren Wool Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater ($398). The piece has a boxy fit with ribbing at the collar, cuffs, and hem.

I have not been able to take a really good look at the jeans, but will do so later this evening. UPDATE: The jeans look like another pair by Mother, the Weekender Style, in a color called “Deep End.” I show them below at Saks ($258), but they are also in stock at Mother, as well as at Nordstrom and at Neiman Marcus. Thank you to Kate Middleton Styled for this ID.

The Princess was in the same boots worn yesterday, which I have moved into the UFO category. Having a much better photo today helped me see these are not the Reiss Thea. One big distinction: the Reiss has stitching at the sole, while the boot worn by the Princess are not stitched.

UPDATE 9:45 PM With thanks to UFO No More, the boots look like a style by ba&sh, the brand’s Codalie Chelsea Boot in chocolate brown (€179, about $190 at today’s exchange rates).

The boots are 100% leather in a pull-on design, with a lug sole, and elastic inserted. It is available in black at ba&sh ($460) and at Bloomingdale’s ($460). The Princess has also worn a belt by the brand.  

It looked like the Princess may have been wearing her Removable Teardrop Garnet Charm Hoops (£95, about $115) by Welsh jeweler Spells of Love.

The hoops are recycled 18K gold vermeil over sterling silver with removable garnet charms, and they are available for preorder with delivery expected in 10-12 weeks.

It looks like Catherine has had her ring adjusted to stop it spinning. In some photos it looks like an extra ring piece under finger.

Jacket, jeans, boots, and hair are all in need of a rethink.


Wednesday 8th of November 2023

Oof this was a major miss for me. The jacket, jeans and boots are all awful.


Tuesday 7th of November 2023

Classic Burberry…That’s a jacket I would love to wear. Gorgeous cut and I really like the colors and the details: buttons and corduroy collar. And Kate is definitely doing her “when in Scotland, wear plaid” tradition :-)

But oh how a ponytail would have elevated this look! Still perplexed about this matted, flat hairstyle that drags everything down.

I think the jeans might work with a long fitted coat so that the proportions were lengthened and less boxy. However it seems like cycling in flared trousers is always a bad idea.
