Kate Middleton recycles navy coat with festive jumper arriving in Manchester with William

Kate Middleton and William: Expert on couple's royal train tour

Kate Middleton, 38, and Prince William, also 38, are on a Royal Train tour which sees the couple stopping around the country and thanking frontline workers for their efforts during the pandemic. Last night, the royals visited FareShare in Greater Manchester, the region’s biggest food charity. The visit was the Duke and Duchess’ fourth visit on Monday.

For the visit to Fareshare, Kate and William looked smart in their matching navy coats.

Putting safety first like the couple always do, the pair donned face coverings.

For William, he appeared to wear the same navy face mask all day.

However Kate takes great detail in matching her face masks to her outfit and decided to opt for a floral pattern with the same colours as her jumper.

She paired the look with navy wide leg trousers to match the jacket.

To tie the outfit together, Kate added a navy croc-effect belt to her outfit.

She has a similar one in black which she has recycled a number of times.

The Anderson’s Croc-effect leather belt, which is stocked on high-end fashion websites like Net-A-Porter, retails for a whopping £98.

Kate added a pop of colour to her outfit with a colourful Fair Isle design, perfect for the festive period.

It was cream in colour with a round neck and had shades of blue, rust and orange on the pattern.

To keep warm, the Duchess popped on a pair of navy gloves.

For accessories, Kate changed her earrings from the previous visit and recycled a pair of drop pearl earrings.

These were the same gold earrings she wore for her 5 Big Questions on the Under Fives campaign video.

She styled her caramel locks in her signature hairstyle with loose waves around her shoulders.

The visit saw the royal couple visiting FareShare, which is a food charity who has seen the demand for the organisation rise throughout the pandemic.

The food charity has more than doubled its impact since the outbreak of coronavirus and is now distributing enough food for over 200,000 meals each week to frontline charities across Greater Manchester and the North West.

Lindsay Boswell, CEO FareShare said: “Following an extraordinarily difficult year for the vulnerable communities that FareShare get vital food supplies to, we are now facing into an even tougher winter.

“The economic impacts of Covid-19 are biting the most vulnerable communities very hard, on top of the terrible health impacts wrought by the virus.

“FareShare and its incredible volunteers have maintained a full operation throughout the year, to provide over two million meals per week to the charitable communities and their clients who need our help, and will continue to do so over winter.

“The very touching visit from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to FareShare Greater Manchester not only helps to motivate all of us at FareShare, staff and volunteers, to continue to tackle the issues head on, but it helps to continue to shine a light on the lack of access to healthy food faced by many millions of our citizens in this country, whilst good to eat food equivalent to over 1.3 billion meals goes to waste before it reaches our homes or schools.”
