Hobbs Persephone Trench Coat

Pine green trench coat

Those who follow Duchess Kate’s style will understand she always puts a little extra effort into her outfits for special occasions.

For example, since marrying Prince William she has attended three annual St Patrick’s Day Parades, and each time she has opted to wear green – a colour highly associated with Ireland. In 2014, Kate didn’t break tradition.  She chose to wear an emerald green trench coat by Hobbs London.

Later, the Duchess wore the green coat for second time to a public engagement.  She chose the piece for a visit to Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.
