Kate Middleton’s clever dress at her recent appearance at the COP26 summit has shown she and Prince William are now the ‘future’ of the monarchy, claims an expert.
The full-length coat dress, from London label Eponine, was a deliberate choice, writes Daniela Elser. The Duchess of Cambridge, who has sported glamorous sparkling gowns for film premieres and played with leopard prints over recent years, went for a more reserved outfit this week.
Daniela claims her bolder fashion choices prove the “nerves are gone” and Kate is not only comfortable in her skin but in her ability to “do the job”.
Her ability to wear a dress that didn’t steal the limelight of the important issues at hand is proving Kate is a “natural successor” of Princess Diana, writes NewsAU.
Daniela wrote: “If she had turned up in something colourful or interesting, anything really that would have given the fashion writers of the world even the most bare of somethings to cover, that would have detracted from the main event here, namely addressing climate change.
“There are also reports the dress is from the brand’s spring/summer 2020 collection and could have already been something she owned already.
The 39-year-old wore her hair pulled back, “businesslike”, and the jewellery, shoes, and clutch bag were all pieces we’ve seen her in before – offering a ‘blank slate’ and echoing issues brought up at the vital Climate Conference.
However, before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left royal life for the US in March last year, it was believed they could bring change to the monarchy.
Experts reported they could push The Firm into the modern 21st century, but they then stepped down as senior royals of the Royal Family.
Daniela claims the “new and vital re-imagining” of the royals is an “evolution” that may not have seemed probable two years ago before Harry and Meghan tied the knot.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also released an open letter urging world leaders to come together to fight climate change ahead of the conference.
