The day must have some significance for Kate and William as they met at the University of St Andrews. They met in their first year and moved in together in the second year. Undoubtedly there must have been some St Andrews Day celebrations spent together there.

Kate wore the Black Watch Tartan coat from McQ, a diffusion line of her favourite brand of all time Alexander McQueen.

The now-iconic coat is very difficult to find online but has been sold on resale site Lyst in the past for £1,311.

Other coats from the brand’s Fall 2020 collection are selling on Net a Porter for around £1,000.

Kate has worn the coat on a number of occasions. This includes Christmas at Sandringham in 2013.

She first wore the coat on St Andrew’s Day in 2012 visiting her old prep school.

The coat features the plaid of Scotland’s 3rd Battalion Regiment, the Black Watch, hence its name.

With the look Kate wore green accesories that matched patterns in the tartan.

This includes an emerald green scarf, a Pashmina from Pickett, £260.

She carried a new handbag on the occasion too, a piece from MANU Atelier.

It was the Micro Bold bag in Emerald Green. The little suede and leather bag. The bag cannot be bought from the brand anymore.

Similar bags have sold second hand for £360 and £250.

The exact bag sold on eBay for £380.

She wore her black suede Tod’s pumps, £350, and merino wool black gloves, the Imogen style from Cornelia James, £95.

A priceless detail in Kate’s outfit was her diamond and sapphire earrings, thought to be repurposed studs that once belonged to Diana.

On St Andrew’s Day Scots celebrate their culture with music and food.

St Andrew is the patron saint of Scotland. St Andrew was not actually from Scotland, instead hailing from Galilee, Israel.

So, why is he the patron saint of Scotland, given it is more than likely the fisherman and Galilee local never countenance the existence of the country?

Some relic of St Andrew were supposedly brought to Scotland by a Saint Regulis, which he claimed to have done on God’s instruction. 

This tartan is a great example of Kate’s diplomatic dressing.

She is known for relfecting the cultures of where she is in her style.
