The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge landed in the capital of the Northwest Territories last night, before retiring early to their hotel, The Globe and Mail reports. The couple was likely exhausted from a full weekend of boat races, tree planting and indulging in local cuisine. Prince William impressed crowds in Prince Edward Island with his first-ever helicopter water landing. Perhaps equally as impressive, Kate executed 10 successful outfit changes from Thursday to Monday evening alone. Here’s a brief recap:
Kate boarded a plane bound for Canada looking polished in a navy shift by Roland Mouret and matching blazer by Toronto-based Smythe les Vestes.
While on board, Kate slid into a second navy look, this one with a lace over-lay and cream bodice by Erdem Moralioglu, a Canadian designer.
Kate opted for her go-to designer Thursday night, wearing a white bird printed Issa wrap dress to the house of Canada’s Governor General, bringing the grand total of costume changes to three in her first day abroad.
Kate took her hat fetish to a new level Friday with a bright red Maple Leaf design. The duchess paired the eye-catching accessory with a cream-colored Reiss dress and matching brooch in honor of Canada Day.
On Friday evening, Kate donned a royal purple ensemble by her favorite stand-by designer, Issa, similar to the stunning engagement dress.
A fitted, crisp Kensington piece by British designer Catherine Walker gave Kate a polished look while visiting cancer patients and planting trees in Quebec Saturday.
Kate chose a fitted Erdem piece in blue with lace details – both of which are becoming signature aspects of the young royal’s wardrobe. Sunday was the second time Kate has worn a garment by the Montreal-born and London-based designer.
Kate paired a cream-colored crepe frock by Joseph with a soft pink tweed jacket and nude heels for an event at Forts-de-Levis Sunday night.
Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen got a nod again by Kate, who sported a cream cable knit sweater dress with blue trim on Prince Edward Island Monday. The sailor inspired ensemble resembled Anne Shirley in the TV version of Anne of Green Gables, reports Fashionista.com. The princess said the book was one of her favorites growing up, and met actress Tess Benger, who plays Anne in a play recreating Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic.
Kate went more casual than we are accustomed to seeing her for a dragon boat race Monday. She donned a pair of skinny jeans, Nike windbreaker and Sebago deck shoes for the event, reports the Mirror.
Kate departed the plane in YellowKnife in the Northwest Territory Monday night in a navy blue trench by designer Ted Baker, according to the bloggers at What Kate Wore. It will likely only be a matter of time before the trench flies off online retail sites.
