The Royal Wardrobe, Royal Visit Bhutan - mountains and poppies

Day six of the Royal Visit to India and Bhutan was mostly spent walking along dusty tracks and taking in the amazing scenery of a walk to Tiger's Nest monastery. We got two new outfits from the Duchess of Cambridge including an evening look as her time in Bhutan ended with a reception. Here's the looks from the second day of Royal Visit Bhutan.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a striking orange evening dress for a reception for people from Bhutan with links to the UK. It's by Beulah London and it's rather nice.

It's also covered in poppies in a nod to Bhutan's national flower and rather low cut for the duchess. The fitted top dips to a V with a banded waist that lets the long skirt flow out. 

But what really makes it is the colour which suits Kate down to the ground. It's strong and stunning and even though this gown does make her look very slim, we'll let her off - she has just trekked for hours through mountains. Another winner.

But the day outfit is the one we'll be seeing over and over again. It's starred in some photos that are already classics and which will be featured in this royal story for years to come.

The building blocks of the outfit were smart and classic - jeans and a white blouse plus some rather smart and practical brown boots.

But the stand out part of this look is the waistcoat. It's leather and from Really Wild Clothing and it's already a royal classic.

Bhutan is done, tomorrow the couple head back to India to say thank you for the hospitality they have been shown and to make a poignant trip to the Taj Mahal, walking in the footsteps of many royals including, of course, Diana, Princess of Wales. It's going to be another special day.
