Kate Middleton’s royal tour outfits are some of the Duchess’s most popular outfits of all time…
Who could forget Catherine stepping off the plane in her iconic red coat, or that powder blue Catherine Walker coat. The Duchess of Cambridge is one of the world’s most popular fashion icons – whatever she wears, you can guarantee that the world wants to know!
As the pair visit countries around the world, all eyes are usually on Kate’s outfits. And it’s no surprise, as her tours abroad always see multiple outfit changes!
In recent years, Kate’s royal tour outfits have been some of her most elegant, sophisticated, and daring so far.
She and William have undertaken many royal tours over the years, travelling from Singapore to Malaysia, to India, Bhutan and France.
But most recently, the Duke and Duchess have been on a packed, whirlwind tour of Sweden and Norway. But while Catherine has had some fashion hits during the tour, some of her chosen outfits have been criticsed by fashion fans. Uh-oh!
See a collection of Kate Middleton’s royal tour outfits, and decide for yourself…
Elegant in Erdem, Royal Tour of Sweden, 2018
The Duchess wore a velvet blue gown by British-based Erdem designer to an elegant evening reception recently. The outfit won huge praise from fashion fans and magazines alike, but unfortunately, other royal fans were less than keen on the choice! On Twitter, one disappointed fan wrote of the dress, “This is disappointing. I love a nice furnishing fabric coat, but in a dress it’s heinous. And this is particularly ew.” While another agreed, commenting, “I think the Duchess of Cambridge looks really frumpy in both Erdem dresses, what happened to her sense of style?” Oh dear!
Staying warm in a Catherine Walker coat, Royal Tour of Sweden, 2018
Accompanies by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, Catherine made a bold statement in this red and white chequered dress.
Kate paired the popular choice with a Mulberry handbag. Many fans noted that for her 2018 royal tour of Sweden, Catherine made a marked move away from clutch bags, instead favouring smaller handbags. Could it be the influence of Meghan Markle and her preference for the style?

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore another Erdem number for a dinner with the Swedish royal family during her tour of the country.
The silk, Victorian-esque number actually left fans divided. Whilst it drew praise from plenty of royal fans, other dubbed it old-fashioned and frumpy.
But what do you think?
