Royal Wardrobe Canada: day six

The Kate Effect was knocked for six by George and Charlotte

For once, did anyone really notice the outfit the Duchess of Cambridge had on? From George's bubbles to Charlotte's cuddles, day six was all about Kate's kids. But in honour of the tour and the fact that it's always interesting to analyse what the Duchess of Cambridge donned, here's a look at the dress from day six. And the wedges. Well, you didn't really think we'd get through eight days of appearances without a visit from the dreaded wedges, did you? Luckily, the cuteness factor of the whole day outweighed them. Here's the bit of Royal Wardrobe Canada you didn't actually notice.

Kate chose cream for her big family day out. The dress features a knitted top with ruff style collar and a flared skirt ending just below the knee.

The skirt has plenty of volume thanks to the low pleats, starting at hip level while the texture of the fabric on the lower half of the dress adds depth to the overall look.

There's a hint of that autumn/ winter fashion favourite for 2016, the Victoriana blouse, about the whole top and it's got a  modern edge that has helped make the wardrobe for Royal Visit Canada a standout for Kate.

But then we get to the wedges. We know Kate loves a pair of wedges but this selection, in palest taupe, still has that slightly dated feel that always come with this style of shoe. It was too much to hope for a whole tour without them, let's just keep everything crossed they are safely tucked away before day seven gets started.
