Kate and William visit the Royal Marsden Hospital

William and Kate visited the Royal Marsden Hospital in south London today to open a brand new children’s cancer unit.  Both William and Kate toured the unit, which has been built to treat day and inpatients.

Now we’ll take a closer look at Kate’s outfit:

Kate’s dress:

Kate wore a beige-grey dress (which in these pictures is a little washed out, looking more white or cream!)  The colour is actually officially knows as ‘Oatmeal.’  The dress is by designer Amanda Wakeley.  The dress is called the “sculpted felt long sleeved seamed dress.”  The dress retails at £450.

We have to say a BIG thank you to @Kates_Wardrobe on Twitter for the find!



Kate’s accessories:

Kate is wearing her trusty L.K. Bennett Sledge2 pumps and her Natalie straw clutch by the same designer.


Kate's Outfit for Royal Marsden Hospital 2011


Shop Kate's Wardrobe:


  1. Rather boring. She needs to accessorize more like Michelle Obama. For such a classic,simle dress, I would have worn some snakeskin shoes or something with pattern or pop of color. Other options could be a colorful scarf or statement necklace.

  2. I think she has chosen the right clothes and accessories for the occasion!!!

  3. I think she looks simply elegant and her face and hair are perfection.

  4. I have just listed a brand new pair of UK size 5 Sledge shoes in taupe in high shine leather on Ebay – at a really reasonable price. I bought them in Selfridges but they are too small. I read this blog so wanted to let you guys know as I had been looking for them for ages. I couldn’t see where to message the author of the blog though – so sorry for posting here.
