In tribute to their stop in Scotland, the mom of three carried Strathberry's Multrees Wallet (US$355) in embossed croc. The Edinburgh-based brand is a favourite of Kate and Duchess Meghan.

"It's so thrilling to see Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge disembarking in our hometown with one of our brand new Strathberry designs," said Strathberry owner and co-founder Leeanne Hundleby. "We're completely overjoyed and honoured that she chose to support a small, independent Scottish brand during her visit to Scotland.

"Her endorsement means the world to us, and she looks incredibly beautiful and sophisticated, as always."

Kate wore her long blond-highlighted hair in a centre part, with soft waves cascading down her shoulders.

The duke and duchess have a full schedule for Dec. 7, and the 38-year-old wore the same chic look to meet members of the Scottish Ambulance Service Response Centre in Newbridge.

Blue has always been one of Kate's favourite colours, but the stylish royal, along with the rest of the Cambridge family, has been wearing the shade more than ever in 2020 as the world battles COVID-19. Many have seen it as a sign of her support of the National Health Service (NHS) and other frontline workers.

The Duchess of Cambridge previously wore the cornflower blue Catherine Walker coat on another royal tour! During her three-day tour of Sweden and Norway with William in 2018, the style maven stepped out in the crisp coat to take in the Princess Ingrid Alexandra Sculpture Park. Kate paired the mantel with chocolate brown accessories, including tall boots, gloves, a clutch and a furry hat.

Kate kicked off the tour by re-wearing another piece from her stylish wardrobe. The 38-year-old sported a military-inspired Alexander McQueen coat, paired with a red-and-green plaid scarf, tall black boots and her go-to liberty print face mask.

There are going to be a number of fantastic fashion moments from Kate as she and William travel around on their royal train tour to England, Scotland and Wales. The train trip, which runs from Dec. 6 to Dec. 8, will see the couple meet with various people, including frontline workers, care home staff, volunteers, school children and more, to thank them and hear about their experiences with the coronavirus pandemic. Kate and William have borrowed the Queen's train for the special jaunt.
