It’s no secret that the Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of high street stalwart Hobbs, known for its good quality coats and elegant occasionwear.
Her latest look from the brand features a classic, tailored coat in an eye-catching fuschia colour, and even better, it’s currently on sale with 25% off for Black Friday.
The Tilda coat – which is normally £299 but currently available for £224.25 – is made from naturally warm and biodegradable brushed wool fabric, with a recycled polyester lining to help reduce landfill. The simple, tailored shape is also timeless enough that it will never go out of fashion, which is ideal if you’re looking to build a winter wardrobe with longevity.
The Duchess teamed her coat with another Hobbs item, a merino wool roll-neck jumper in bright pink. Again, this is currently available with 25% off, reduced from £75 to £56.25. The fine gauge knit features gold button detailing to the sleeve, and is also available in black.
Kate kept the rest of her outfit simple, with smart black trousers, plain black court shoes and Daniella Draper earrings.
The Duchess was photographed while visiting Nower Hill High School in Harrow. During her visit, Kate joined a science lesson where year eight pupils learned about neuroscience and the importance of early childhood development on the brain. It’s a subject close to her heart, as the Duchess works closely with The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, launched this summer, to highlight why experiences during this period of life are so crucial.
Kate told students that she felt ‘passionate’ about the subject, telling them: ‘I was so fascinated when I first learnt about this. How babies’ brains are formed and how they developed and what this means for us when we grow up.’
