The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s royal tour of Pakistan rolls on, and so too does Kate’s diplomatic dressing. For an evening at the National Monument of Pakistan in Islamabad hosted by the British High Commissioner Thomas Drew, the Duchess – who arrived at the event in a rickshaw with husband William – turned to one of her favourite British brands: Jenny Packham. She wore her sequined green gown – the same colour as Pakistan’s flag – with a pair of metallic heels and statement earrings by Indian and Pakistani luxury couture brand, O’nitaa.
The Duchess’s dress featured a matching sequined green scarf draped over one shoulder.
Earlier this month, the Duchess wore multiple shades of green as we marked the arrival of autumn. While meeting Muslim spiritual leader the Aga Kha in London, she opted for an ARoss Girl x Soler “Amanda” dress in shades of green. She paired her ankle-length dress, which featured a sash belt and cuffed sleeves, with forest green pumps and a matching clutch.
As the tour, which Kensington Palace has described as the couple’s “most complex” to date, continues, it’s likely Kate will continue to use her tour wardrobe to make discreet nods to her host country’s culture, while waving the flag for homegrown British designers, too.
