Kate and Will toured the city of Birmingham yesterday to visit with families and members of the community who were affected by last weeks riots.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are among many royals who have stepped out after London’s deadly riots last week. Prince Harry was one of the first to meet with firefighters in Manchester and Salford who were attacked by rioters and Prince Charles and Camilla visited Tottenham to meet with families and children affected by the riots

Kate was seen wearing upwards of $2,500 worth of Alexander McQueen (paired with some lovely familiar shoes!)   as the couple toured communities and spoke with people affected by last weeks deadly riots.

All the McQueen pieces that Kate wore are still available online.  While I do enjoy both the skirt and the blouse, I have to admit pairing them together is a little too much military for me!

But… for this occasion, what she was wearing isn’t nearly as important as what The Duke and Duchess were doing that day.

Now… a quick note on the fashion!

The Military Silk-Gorgette Blouse by Alexander McQueen is still available on Net-a-Porter for $1,335.
“Alexander McQueen’s military-inspired silk-georgette blouse exudes signature sophistication. Tuck this navy-trimmed piece into a structured skirt, adding your highest heels to salute the new season in style”.

The Embellished Wool Crepe Skirt, is also still available at Net-a-Porter for $995.
“Upgrade your new season wardrobe with a hit of Alexander McQueen’s covetable military aesthetic. In a nautical navy hue, this button-embellished wool-crepe skirt is a versatile style. Directional front slits lend it an air of It girl cool “

Kate accessorised with her trusty navy pumps and blue drop earrings we have seen on many other occasions.
