Thrifty Kate strikes again! Duchess wears £369 Hobbs jacket to Crathie Kirk with the Queen
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, attended a church service with the royal family this morning.
The 35-year-old looked cosy as she was pictured in the back of a car leaving the small church.
She attended the service with the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince William, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Mike Tindall – Zara’s husband.
Kate was wrapped up warm in one of her favourite Hobbs jackets; burgundy in colour, it was a decidedly autumnal look for the royal.
The August sunshine was not apparent this morning as the royal piled into their waiting cars to be taken back to Balmoral.
Several members of the extended family are up in Scotland enjoying time away at Balmoral Castle.
Fans will be please to catch sight of the Duchess of Cambridge, who has not been seen since her recent tour of Belgium.
Although dedicated Kate fans will be gutted to find out her stunning coat is completely sold out.
The Hobbs celeste coat was on the rails for a cool £369 when Kate was first spotted out in the jacket back in 2012.
The Duchess is widely regarded as one of the most fashionable women in the world, and her stylist Natasha Archer can take some credit for this accolade.
Kate has worked with Natasha, 30, since 2007 and the pretty blonde is often seen by her side.
Natasha joined the Royal household as Kate’s PA in 2007 but didn’t become her stylist until 2014.
She earned her promotion after giving an opinion on the nude shoes so loved by the Duchess, and for also packing the perfect royal tour suitcase, according to reports in Tatler.
A source spoke to Vanity Fair about the relationship between Tash, as she is known, and Kate.
They said: “Initially Kate was a reluctant fashion icon, but now she enjoys it. Tash helps source some of the clothes.
“She shops a lot for Kate online, and calls in hundreds of dresses for Kate to try on.
“She has persuaded Kate to take some more risks. The hemlines are shorter and Kate’s really pushing the boat out in the fashion stakes.”
