On the 30th June 2011, Kate and William boarded their plane to Ottawa, Canada for the first leg of their first Royal Tour together.
Kate wore a navy blue dress by French designer Roland Mouret. The style name is “Manon”.
Neiman Marcus stocked the Manon dress. They described it as a “draped neck sheath dress” with a “simply flattering silhouette”.
The dark navy dress made from double-faced zibeline. It features an asymmetric neckline with left foldover detail. It’s also sleeveless, and the pleated right shoulder forms crisscross back with cutout details. It is made in the United Kingdom.
Kate paired her Roland Mouret dress with a navy blue blazer by Canadian designer Smythe. The style name is the “One Button Blazer” (update: the company renamed the blazer “Duchess” after Kate wore it).
The navy blue blazer features a single button closure with two waist pockets and a chest pocket. Like Kate’s military jacket, this navy blazer is adorned with gold coloured buttons.

Smythe released a statement saying they are “thrilled” to part of Kate’s wardrobe for the Royal Visit:
“We design with a women like Catherine Middleton in mind: tailored and effortlessly chic. Needless to say we are delighted that Her Royal Highness has included Smythe in her first visit to Canada.”
Kate also carried her Mulberry Polly Push-lock shoulder bag.
Kate carries the smaller size handbag.
Finally, Kate wore a pair of navy blue Manolo Blahnik Calogera court shoes. Interestingly, Kate has not worn these shoes since her 2011 visit to Canada. Here’s a closer look at the shoe in black:
