Duchess Kate stuns in beautiful navy Hobbs coat on royal train tour


It's a new look! Duchess Kate and Prince William continued on their royal train tour with a stop at the Batley Community Centre in West Yorkshire. With a new port of call, came a fresh outfit for the duchess. Like her previous ensembles on the trip, this one was also recycled from her closet!

The 38-year-old visited the community centre in a tailored navy coat from Hobbs. The winter warmer is a double-breasted style with golden buttons and a long length. If the coat looks familiar, that's because it appears to be the one Kate wore back in February when she and William visited Wales.

For the visit to the Batley Community Centre, Kate paired the navy outdoorwear with a cream sweater, dark trousers and a matching belt. She also layered up in navy gloves and a blue flower face mask. Navy pumps and a brown suede clutch with golden chain strap were the finishing touches on the mom of three's outfit. The bag was the Roma Mini in Suede Marrakech ($1,380) from Metier London.

Kate's long brunette locks were styled in her signature look, featuring a centre part and soft, flowing waves.
