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.
