Kate Middleton’s Royal Return: Duchess Steps Out in Timeless Style

The royal family seemingly disappeared from the public eye during the holidays.

We can’t blame them, though. Prince George and Princess Charlotte are awfully young, so it’s good to know their parents ensured they enjoyed a private holiday season, just like any other family.

However, it seems like the family has wasted no time returning to work post-holiday. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was spotted with her husband, Prince William, on the family’s first public engagement in 2017.

The couple’s last public appearance before the new year was at a Christmas day mass, which they attended with George and Charlotte.

Kate was a sight to behold in blue as she kicked off the new year in an Eponine double wool crepe dress coat from the brand’s Fall 2016 collection.

The gorgeous coat had subtle stitching details at the bodice, which elevated it from simple to chic.

The Duchess accessorized her look with the Cartier “Ballon Bleu” stainless steel watch, a Stuart Weitzman “For Russell & Bromley” navy suede muse clutch, her Royal Collection Garrards Jewellers engagement ring — which was passed down from Princess Diana — and a pair of Rupert Sanderson “Malory” suede pumps.

Kate favors the same styles and designers, and the Rupert Sanderson “Malory” pumps are a favorite.

We’d love to see Kate wear other shoes, but we understand the need for the duchess to keep her image conservative as part of the royal family. Regardless, we appreciate Kate’s timeless style every time we see it.

The Royal Couple visited The Anna Freud Centre and moved on to Child Bereavement UK afterward. Kate talked about how it’s tough to be a parent to two energetic tots.

Her husband, Prince William, opened up about his anger at losing his mother, the late Princess Diana.
