Now for our look at what Kate wore for Day three of the Ireland tour, starting with her gown by Suzannah London.

It most carefully resembles the label’s Valerie Midi gown (£1250 / $1609).  

The gown is 100% silk crepe de chine with a silk habotai lining. It is described as “A vintage 1940s gown inspired design” with detailing at the shoulders bodice as well as cuffs.  It has “a somewhat higher pitched waist seam, with the skirt being a soft a-line….the sleeves have a terrific pleated sleeve head as well as playfully cut long sleeves. A charming gown with a terrific soft as well as flattering structure.” Below, you can see some of the detailing on Kate’s cuffs, the belt she is wearing as well as the pleats at a carry seam.

Atop the dress, Kate wore her Alexander McQueen coat.

Here is a look at the Duchess in her casual ensemble when she changed into the Zara skinny jeans we’ve seen previously on the trip as well as a familiar sweater from truly Wild.

The sweater is the brand’s Cashmere Mix cord team ($242 / £225) in what I believe is the ‘coral’ colorway.   

The piece is a cashmere/merino wool blend in a chunky cord knit, created in Scotland by makers who run a zero-yarn waste production. It looks familiar since Kate wore the style in red during the Canada excursion in September 2016.

There has been discussion about whether the Duchess is wearing the silver or gold earrings as well as necklace. yesterday I was 100% convinced the earrings were the sterling silver version.
