All of Kate Middleton’s Canadian-made looks from the Royal Visit

All of Kate Middleton’s Canadian-made looks from the Royal Visit

The Duchess of Cambridge opted for British designers for much of her recent visit to the west coast, but she did throw in a few Canadian-made pieces for good measure (including a jacket by one of Sophie Trudeau’s favourite labels). Here are all the homegrown looks Duchess Kate wore during the recent Royal Visit to B.C. and the Yukon.

Last Monday, just as she and Prince William kicked off the royal tour, Kate wore a pair of kite-shaped earrings by Montreal-born, U.K.-based designer Pippa Small:

During the royal couple’s 2011 visit to Canada’s east coast, Kate made headlines for wearing a navy blue blazer from Toronto label Smythe. This time around, she opted for an army green blazer from the same label. It’s fitting: Smythe co-founders Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe named this style, which Kate wore on a visit to Haida Gwaii Island, the “Duchess”:

The Smythe topper wasn’t the only Toronto-made jacket to get the royal treatment. On Wednesday, the Duchess kept warm in the Yukon in a jacket from Sentaler—a label that’s also favoured by Sophie Grégoire Trudeau:

Putting some Canadian icing on the cake, Middleton topped that look with a pair of earrings from Nova Scotia-born jewellery designer Shelley Silversmith. Silversmith’s Etsy store has since—not unwisely—gone Full Duchess:


And while it’s not quite Canadian-made, this maple leaf pin—which Kate displayed on a blue pencil dress by U.K. designer Jenny Packham and later on a red gown from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi—gets an honourable mention. The diamond brooch, which currently belongs to the Queen, was gifted to the Queen Mother by King George on the occasion of their visit to Canada in 1932:
