The Princess of Wales has debuted a new title. Kate Middleton, 41, and Prince William, 40, traveled to the town of Cornwall for a special visit to mark her new duchy.
Following the death of Queen Elizabeth, in addition to receiving the title of Prince and Princess of Wales, the couple were also named Duke and Duchess of Cornwall. Kate and William also retain their titles of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, bestowed by Queen Elizabeth on their wedding day in 2011.
Kate Middleton in Hobbs coat in Cornwall
The Prince and Princess of Wales completed a series of events in the harbor town of Falmouth, where they were able to learn more about maritime heritage at the National Maritime Museum, before visiting a local community center.
To be in tune with this special visit, Kate Middleton has looked impeccable. In her debut as Duchess of Cornwall, Kate has been faithful to her classic style, debuting a wine-colored coat with midi length, leather belt with studs and details on the cuffs. It is a Hobbs design and its price is around 442 dollars.
Another premiere garment was the dress she wore under her coat. The Princess of Wales wore a high-necked piece in burgundy to which she added an animal print belt to highlight the silhouette.
Kate combined her style with brown high-heeled boots, designed by Gianvito Rossi. As for jewelry, she wore Kiki McDonough’s leaf-shaped citrine earrings and her engagement ring.
Since the death of Elizabeth II and her new institutional role, Kate’s schedule has increased considerably. Previously, as Duchess of Cambridge, she averaged about three or four events a month; now, that number has increased.
A survey conducted at the end of 2022 ranked Kate as the royal family member who spent the most on clothes and the one who fulfilled the fewest official engagements. Undoubtedly, this is something she wants to change this year.
