Kate Middleton wore the Cefinn Riley Funnel Neck Blouse in Cornflower Blue during a visit to Glasgow, Scotland in May 2022. The classic blouse was perfect for the visit—its colour resembled that of the country’s flag 🏴 .
This is the only occasion we’ve seen Kate wear the blue funnel neck blouse, but I suspect it’ll make a re-appearance at an NHS or nursing-related event in the future (Kate is known to wear blue to such engagements as the colour is closely aligned with the medical profession!)
About the blue funnel-neck blouse:
Cefinn call the Riley a perennial bestseller “hero blouse” and describe it as “glamorous meets demure”.
It features a high neck collar, cuffs with double button fastening and a box pleat at the centre front.
The Riley blouse comes in a whopping eight different colours—so there’s an option to suit every skin tone, personality and occasion.
According to Cefinn, the blouse is crease resistant, which makes it easy to throw on as you run out of the door to work in a morning. Plus, it’ll look great all day.
Buying the blouse:
The cornflower blue Riley blouse is available in limited sizes at Cefinn.com for £170 at the time of writing.

Cefinn is the brand founded by Samantha Cameron, the wife of former British Prime Minister David Cameron.
After Cefinn’s launch in 2016, Samantha Cameron told an audience of female entrepreneurs that she she’d been looking for “workwear and daywear that had a bit of a fashion edge, that felt a bit cleaner, younger, more modern than what was available.” She aimed for Cefinn to fill this gap in the market. The brand is priced somewhere between the high street and designer.
The word ‘Cefinn’ is derived from Samantha Cameron’s children’s initials.
Has Kate Middleton worn any other clothing from Cefinn?
Yes, we’ve seen a photograph of the the Duchess wearing Cefinn’s Astrid dress in green leopard print. A now-deleted Instagram post showed Kate wearing the dress during an after school outing with Prince George and Princess Charlotte in April 2022. The Duchess had taken her two children to get an ice-cream on a sunny afternoon.
