The Princess wore the British brand’s Ami coat. Since, Kate has worn the garment to three other public events.
About the L.K. Bennett red coat:
The red Ami coat is from L.K. Bennett’s autumn/winter 2011 collection. The company described the piece as a “structured, military-style, fashion coat” that is defined by “beautiful detailing, a modern belt and a clean fitted silhouette.”
The coat is crafted from a tightly woven wool mix fabric and is fully lined. Although long sold out now, you could originally buy the coat in three colours, toffee, black and burgundy. Kate owned the burgundy (deep red) colour.
The coat originally retailed at £345, before going on sale at £145.

How to buy the LK Bennett Ami coat:
The Ami coat formed part of L.K. Bennett’s 2011 collection, so it is long sold out.
Today, you can only buy it from eBay.
Kate and LK Bennett Coats:
The Princess of Wales owns a couple of LK Bennett coats. In addition to the Ami in red, we’ve spotted her in the company’s Darwin Shearling Jacket in Chocolate Brown. This cosy piece was sported by the Princess in a photograph for her ‘Shaping Us’ campaign in January 2023, and also during a visit to Switzerland back in 2013.
In 2022, the Princess wore the L.K. Bennett Spencer Coat in Red. Kate debuted this bold number during her visit to Wales in September 2022, marking her first visit there since receiving her new title.
