In September 2015, the Duchess of Cambridge joined Princes William and Harry for the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup. She wore the Reiss Emile Coat in a striking cobalt blue colour.
About the Reiss Emile Coat
Reiss describe the Emile coat as “sharply tailored” and “streamlined.” They say the coat will “take you through the new season in style” and “is neatly panelled to flatter your figure.”
The coat features a stand up wrapped collar, single button fastening and two front pockets. It’s fully lined, is knee-length and features full-length sleeves.
More about the coat from Reiss:

Originally, the coat retailed for £325 ($525 in the USA) before it went on sale for £195 ($370 USA).
Kate wore the coat in a bright blue colour, which Reiss named “Blue Passion.” A quick Google search shows it was also available in pale pink and burgundy too. Sadly, the coat is now sold out. You can only purchase it from sellers on eBay.
Kate and Reiss:
The Duchess of Cambridge has worn clothing from premium high street retailer Reiss for a number of occasions. She’s chosen the brand for both high profile events and charity engagements. Duchess wore the Reiss Shola dress to meet President Obama in 2011 (see below).
She wore the company’s Nanette dress for her engagement portrait with Prince William (see below) and she wore Reiss’s Delany jacket for a visit to the Shooting Star House in December 2013.
