The Royal Wardrobe: Day One, Royal Visit India

Good things come in threes as far as the Royal Wardrobe on this Royal Tour is concerned. The Duchess of Cambridge touched down in India at the start of her visit to the country and gave us a trio of new outfits in less than twelve hours. And they were all rather fabulous. They're well worth two or three looks themselves - but do you have a favourite?

This is my winner. Kate chose this dress by Mumbai designer, Anita Dongre, for the main part of the day's engagements.

The pretty patterned dress was an instant hit. Maybe it's the colour combination, maybe it's the hint of boho chic, maybe it's the fact that it just works and then some but this is a winner every day of the week.

There were wedges - there are always wedges with Kate. But this time they were needed as the Duchess picked up a cricket bat.

Overall, this is a star turn of a dress and it needs to go to the top of the royal recycling pile straight away.

Kate had begun the day in another eye catching new outfit. Her Alexander McQueen dress comes from the pre-fall 2016 collection and its vibrant red colour and stand out print made it a look to remember from the very beginning.

The skirt is just fabulous - the perfect length but with a hint of a flare to it that adds a bit more interest.

We got nude heels - there are always nude heels with Kate. But the pattern was stunning - close up it looked even better.

The gala evening saw Kate turn to one of her favourite and most trusted designers, Jenny Packham, who came up with a royal blue evening dress with embellishments added in India.

And there were fabulous earrings, lapis and diamond, from Indian jewellers, Amrapali. A totally different jewel look for Kate and one we need to see again.  

Day One was a total style style treat from Kate - three different looks from her that paid tribute to Indian and British design and added a touch of colour to her sometimes safe wardrobe. Stand by for day two.
