Kate Middleton departed from Belize wearing a vintage red jacket, white trousers and white accessories—once again, likely a nod to her host country. Both colours feature in the Belizean flag 🇧🇿 (full outfit details further down the page ⬇️).
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Caribbean to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Catch up with Kate’s tour outfits on this page.
A group of dignitaries said goodbye to the couple at the airport.
The pair were given a red-carpet farewell with a guard of honour.

Kate’s red & white outfit in Belize:
The Duchess wore a red belted jacket by Yves Saint Laurent with a pair of wide-leg white trousers, white and gold heels by Aquazurra, a white handbag by Mulberry and some shell/pearl earrings from Anthropologie. Another brilliant look for Kate.
It’s bad news for anybody hoping to snag Kate’s YSL jacket—reporters were briefed by the Palace that it’s vintage. She purchased it during her time at university. As Kate graduated in 2005, the jacket must be around 20 years old! (Or even older if it was vintage when she bought it?)
On Twitter, Bojana suggests Alexander McQueen for Kate’s white trousers. I’ll circle back to this later to check them closely or update if the ID is confirmed.
The Duchess debuted a new pair of earrings as she left Belize. They feature gold shells and pearl drops. They’re from Anthropologie.
They’re the company’s Coral Shell Drop Earrings (£48). They feature 14k gold plated brass shells and baroque pearl drops.
Kate carried her Mulberry Amberley handbag in white as she departed Belize.
The Duchess first carried this handbag last year, both times to Wimbledon. She owns it in black croc too.
We saw the return of another accessory – the Maya Torque Aquamarine & Gold Bangle by Halcyon Days.
Kate finished her look with a pair of white and gold shoes. They’re by Aquazzura. The Cece 105 style.
The white pumps feature a sharply pointed toe, gold detailing and elegant cut-outs. The shoes are crafted from smooth nappa leather. RRP £605 at FarFetch.com.
After leaving Belize, Kensington Palace shared a video and photographs of the Duke and Duchess deep sea diving at the Belize Barrier Reef.
The pair spent time diving at the South Water Caye.
Here’s the caption that the palace shared alongside the video and photos on Twitter:
While the effects of climate change are evident, the Government of Belize and communities across the country deserve huge recognition for their efforts to restore this incredible marine environment – with a commitment to protect 30% of it by 2030.
On Sunday, we were lucky enough to spend time diving at South Water Caye, directly above the spectacular Belize Barrier Reef. It was a privilege to see for ourselves the world-leading ocean conservation work being done here.@kensingtonroyal
Sorry, I know the post is a little ‘lite’ on detail. I’m struggling to keep up with the outfit changes!
Carly, great work all week covering the tour.
I am impressed and slightly envious that Kate can wear her university clothing at 40 years old. She is an inspiration for staying fit. I read Zara’s husband Mike would pick Catherine for his team because she can run and run.
The Halcyon Days bangle is surprisingly affordable. Thanks for the link.
