Not only a beautiful choice, but a practical one too!

The Duchess looked stunning in a long red coat by LK Bennett which she paired with some Zipkin Black Suede High-Heel by Stuart Weiztman, for her and William’s trip to Copenhagen.

The foursome toured the “Unicef famine relief depot in the city and were offered a taste of a special high-protein peanut paste which is being sent to malnourished children in East Africa” reports The Dialy Mail. “East Africa is a region close to the couple’s hearts – it was just over a year ago that William arranged a romantic stay in a secluded log cabin on Mount Kenya, where he proposed to Kate.  After visiting the Unicef warehouse William and Kate were being taken to the airport where they were touring a British Airways Boeing 747 before it leaves for the stricken region. The aircraft will be laden with 45 tonnes of aid, including emergency medical supplies”.

The Ami Coat by LK Bennett is sold out on the LK Bennet website in red, however it is available in both beige and black (I’m really keen on the black!) 


The coats are currently on sale for £245.00 (down from £345.00).  Below is the description from the website:
This structured, military-style, fashion coat is defined by beautiful detailing, a modern belt and a clean fitted silhouette. The fabric is a tightly woven Wool Melton rich wool mix and the coat is fully lined. Throw on this feminine, wear with everything cover-up for an instant fashion update”.

Kate paired the coat with a great red crocodile belt, to add a bit of glam to the outfit.  I think that is what makes the outfit and the coat so much more unique and stand out.  From Veccelli Italy the Red Crocodile Belt is still available online for $59.00.

Haven’t found any photos yet of what Kate was wearing underneath the coat.  Considering the weather was in the single digits in Copenhagen, I’m not sure she would have ever taken her coat off!

Thanks to whatkatewore.com and her fabulous Facebook fans for identifying the boats Kate was wearing on the day.  The Zipkin Black Suede High-Heel by Stuary Weitzman have a 4″ heel and gold zipper.  They are still available online for $635 from Joseph

According to The Daily Mail:
“The Unicef visit is perhaps also likely to lead to speculation that the Duchess might consider making African famine relief one of the causes she wants to support. Severe food shortages in East Africa are affecting more than 13 million people and the royal party hope to maintain global attention on the crisis, which is worsening with more areas expected to be declared as ‘in famine’ over the next few months. Unicef’s emergency supply centre in Copenhagen is a worldwide co-ordination centre for nutrition and other emergency supplies reaching children in crisis around the world”.
