Kate Middleton wears Catherine Walker’s Beau Tie Coat Dress in two different colours, red and black.
She’s worn the black version of the coat twice, in public, to date. To Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021 and at a reception held on the eve of the Queen’s funeral in September 2022. Shortly before the reception, Kate also had an audience with the First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska)
We saw Kate in the red version of the coat dress for the Together At Christmas Carol Service at Westminster Abbey in December 2022 and again in November 2023, for the South Korean President’s State Visit (under a cape).
