Duchess Kate Middleton: A Style Icon and a Source of Inspiration

Duchess of Cambridge is constantly in the spotlight, and the ability to look flawless in any situation is Duchess Catherine’s obvious and undeniable talent. Neither bad weather nor a bad mood can spoil her image. Inspired by Catherine’s various appearances, we have decided to uncover the secrets of this impeccable icon of British style.

Kate’s style has been closely monitored for over 10 years by her stylist, the talented Natasha Archer. Together, they create perfect looks for every occasion. Whenever the Duchess of Cambridge appears in public, she leaves an unforgettable impression on the audience.

The Duchess of Cambridge possesses a unique sense of style. She can wear an Alexander McQueen wool coat and Blaiz jewelry, as well as comfortable and eco-friendly Veja sneakers, combined with clothing from mass-market brands like Zara, Topshop, and Asos. Kate skillfully combines these elements with her engagement ring from the jeweler Garrard, featuring a 12-carat oval-cut Ceylon sapphire.

Kate adores gemstones, especially sapphires, pearls, citrines, and blue topazes. Her jewelry collection includes renowned brands such as Kiki McDonough, Links of London, Asprey, Tiffany, and Annoushka. One of her favorite pieces is a gold pendant from Daniella Draper, engraved with the initials of her children – George, Charlotte, and Louis.

Royal family traditions dictate that women wear wedding rings made of the most precious Welsh gold, and Kate follows these traditions. Her engagement ring, created by the jewelry brand Wartski, was crafted from a gold nugget gifted by Queen Elizabeth to her grandson Prince William after his engagement to Kate.

The wedding tiara that Kate wore on her wedding day was the Cartier Halo, an antique headpiece created in 1936 by the jewelers at Cartier, one of the royal family’s main favorites for over 100 years. This tiara had previously been worn by Queen Elizabeth II’s mother, Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret, and Princess Anne. The tiara is adorned with 888 diamonds.

Another tiara that Kate wore is the Cambridge Lover’s Knot, previously worn by Lady Diana. Kate wears this piece for various grand receptions in honor of heads of state. The tiara has a history of over a century. It originally belonged to Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth II’s grandmother. This gold, silver, diamond, and pearl accessory symbolizes enduring and unique sincere love.

The third tiara, known as the Lotus Flower tiara, also worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, is also called the “Papyrus Tiara.” Queen Elizabeth’s father presented his wife with a luxurious diamond and pearl necklace. The necklace was made in an Egyptian style, and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, transformed it into a tiara.

Kate received the Eternity ring, symbolizing eternal feelings and the perpetuity of their relationship, from her husband, Prince William, to commemorate the birth of their first child, Prince George.

Kate is also an advocate for sustainable fashion. She incorporates pieces from brands that prioritize environmental consciousness into her outfits. Her favorite British designer brands include Alexander McQueen, Emilia Wickstead, Erdem, Temperley London, Jenny Packham, Reiss, LKBennett, Amanda Wakeley, and Katherine Hooker. She also wears Jimmy Choo, as well as Catherine Walker, Emilia Wickstead, Missoni, and Chanel.

And, of course, I can’t forget to mention Kate Middleton’s stunning hair. The Duchess of Cambridge always has impeccable hairstyles, thanks to the efforts of her hairdresser, Amanda Cook, who accompanies Kate everywhere – from meetings to public appearances and even creates elegant updos with tiaras. Amanda and her former husband, Neville Tucker, who served the Royal Court, have styled the hair of many members of the royal family, including Princes William and Harry.

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is not only a style icon but also a source of admiration for many women around the world. Let’s be inspired by this bright style star with impeccable taste.
