On the November 2nd 2011, William and Kate visited Unicef’s Emergency Supply Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Their trip aimed to put the spotlight back on the desperate humanitarian crisis in East Africa, caused by drought, high food prices and conflict in Somalia. As a result, over 32,0000 children are severely malnourished and without immediate help, they risk starving to death.
During the visit, Kate and William accompanied the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark around the Unicef centre; all four toured warehouses and looked at the stockpile of crucial supplies.
Kate gave her first interview during this visit, telling the world’s media that the the four royals “really hope to put the spotlight back on this crisis.”

Let’s now take a look at Kate’s outfit in more detail:
Kate’s long red coat is by L.K. Bennett. The style of the coat is the “Ami”. It’s a long, red wool mix coat from the company’s 2011 collection. You can read more about the coat by clicking here.
Kate paired the coat with a different belt, confirmed by Reiss as the Bessie belt from their 2008 collection.
Kate accessorised her dress with a pair of gold leaf shaped earrings by Vinnie Day:
She also wore her gold monogrammed charm bracelet, thought to be a gift from Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. You can see the bracelet pictured below:
The Duchess carried her black suede Stuart Weitzman Muse clutch bag. (Pictured below on a different occasion).
