The Duchess Opts for a Hobbs Coat whilst Visiting Grimsby

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge visited Grimsby, as to visit the town’s Fishing Heritage Centre, and in order to see first-hand the work that The Prince’s Trust is doing in order to reduce Youth Unemployment in the area.

Despite the warm spring day, pregnant Kate decided to wrap up in her staple chestnut brown Celeste wool coat from Hobbs, which we’ve seen her wear a few times before, such as when she visited Liverpool last February. The Hobbs’ leather belted waist and cuff detailed number tucked away a patterned dress from Great Plains, and she completed the look with black suede court shoes, a matching clutch bag, and a pair of Annoushka gold and pearl drop earrings.

Now, despite the fact that the weather’s getting warmer and there shouldn’t be any need as to invest into a new coat, British weather is just so temperamental, so, here’s our pick of some Hobbs-esque coats for all budgets.

Today, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted walking her cocker spaniel pup Lupo in Kensington Gardens once more. As she strolled through the park with a friend, she opted for a LK Bennett brown shearling Darwin jacket, black skinny jeans, and a pair of wellies. It’s that great British Heritage look that she quite typically opts for when she’s off work and relaxing.

As the Duchess of Cambridge attended her first public engagement of the year at Hope House Woman’s Shelter, she opted for a monochrome MaxMara wrap dress, as to give us a glimpse of her ever growing baby bump.

It seems like Kate’s choice of dress had clearly been inspired by one of her known favourite fashion designers too, as its loose fit and pattern clearly resembled the number that model, Cara Delevingne (above right) opened ISSA’s AW 13 runway show at London Fashion in.

Apparently, the Duchess paid a discounted £148 down from £298 for the dress in Matches online sale, but if you however haven’t been as lucky as to find such a steal, here’s our pick of some of the highstreet’s best jersey wrap dresses. Perfect with or without a baby bump!
