And then we came to the end. After eight days, dozens of changes and plenty of colour, Royal Visit Canada faded to white as the Duchess of Cambridge went pale and interesting for the final part of her latest tour. We got skinny trousers, lots of pale and a rather striking pair of check shoes. Here's the final installment of Royal Wardrobe Canada.
The white top, black trousers combo is a bit of a classic that has taken many a royal lady through days of engagements. Kate's version included a pair of slim fitting trousers by Zara, a cream top with ribbing and an off white jacket.
We got another solitary brass button on the waist of the jacket and large lapels - it's another Kate staple - but the really interesting part of this outfit was saved until last.
Kate's made a couple of interesting footwear choices on this tour, as well as bringing out the dreaded wedges, but her last selection was easily the most daring for this duchess. We got a pair of block heeled, check patterned loafers complete with tassle on the pointed toe. Considering Kate has made her nude or black heels almost a uniform over the last five years, this was a real departure and all the better for it.
