Kate Middleton owns the Barbour Wax Defence Jacket in Olive Green.
This hardworking Barbour jacket has been in Kate’s wardrobe since at least 2012.
We’ve spotted the Princess wearing the wax coat at numerous public engagements and while enjoying her downtime. From leisurely strolls through Kensington Gardens to launching outdoorsy campaigns during her life as a working royal.
Our first sighting of Kate in the Barbour jacket took place in spring 2012, during a dog walk in Palace gardens. Nearly a decade on, she chose it again for a public engagement (a farm visit in February 2020). This shows the classic country-style wax jacket is both durable and long-lasting.

Both the Elfie and the Edith jackets are from Barbour’s collaboration with Alexa Chung. We first spotted the Princess in the Edith jacket in 2020 and the Elfie jacket in 2023.
