Kate Middleton owns the Barbour x Alexa Chung ‘Edith’ Jacket.
She wears the jacket in the Beige Sand/Northumberland colourway. To date, we’ve spotted the Princess wearing the wax jacket three times. She debuted the garmet in November 2020, in a video for her 5 Big Questions survey on the Early Years (below).
In April 2023, she wore the jacket to an engagement at a Rugby Club following a training session with Mountain Rescue in South Wales (at the top of this page).
In November 2021, Kate wore the Alexa Chung Barbour jacket for a third time in public, during an engagement with the ‘Dadvengers’, a group of fathers who support each other through parenthood.
About the Alexa Chung x Barbour jacket:
The Edith jacket is from Barbour’s collaboration with fashion model and designer Alexa Chung.
The jacket exudes a timeless elegance with its classic silhouette, marrying functionality with high fashion. Crafted meticulously, it features a rich brown hue, complemented by a plush black corduroy collar, adding a touch of luxury. The gold zipper pocket on the left, paired with traditional button closures, creates a fusion of modern aesthetics and classic design.
The wax jacket’s generous snap-fastened bellows pockets and adjustable cuffs enhance its practicality, making it a versatile piece. The inside reveals a striking, contrasting 100% checked cotton lining, ensuring that every detail is finished to perfection.
The jacket is crafted from 100% waxed cotton. It is designed to oversized and features a zip game pocket on the breast. The front zip is covered with a button storm flap for added weather protection.

Kate Middleton’s four Barbour jackets:
We know the Princess owns four Barbour jackets. (It’s possible she owns more but we’ve only seen her in four of the company’s designs in photographs.)
We know she owns two regular Barbour jackets and two Barbour x Alexa Chung jackets.
In addition to the ‘Edith’ style, the Princess has worn the Defence wax jacket, which she’s owned since at least 2012 and the blue padded Longshore style – a more recent addition to her coat collection. In a candid snap taken at one of her children’s sporting events, we spotted the Princess wearing the Barbour x Alexa Chung Elfie Casual Jacket.
Barbour is a 100-year-old+ company with three Royal warrants. To this day, the company still produces its iconic wax jackets in its factory in the North East of England.
