This week, Kate Middleton and Prince William went on a three-day trip to Boston to attend The Earthshot Prize Awards, which was held on Dec. 2 at the MGM Music Hall. The annual event celebrated individuals whose work helps to repair the planet. Prior to the ceremony on Friday, the couple partook in a host of activities, and for these very public outings around Boston, Middleton wore outfits that showcased her polished and refined style. (She knew her fans would be watching!)
Take her pantsuit on day one of her travels as a prime example. The Princess of Wales arrived at the Logan International Airport in a plum-colored set styled with a coordinating turtleneck for a business-casual ensemble. Meanwhile, Prince William also matched his wife’s sartorial choices by wearing a full suit and tie combo. Later on in the day, Middleton switched into a green and red tartan dress that exuded holiday cheer. The pair’s buttoned-up looks are to be expected, as the royal couple seemingly wanted to make a good impression during their trip. (This visit to Boston marks the first time in 10 years since they’ve been to the states.)
Below, check out every look Middleton wore during her trip, along with suggested pieces to shop should you fall in love with any of her outfits.
The couple attended the 2022 Earthshot Prize ceremony. Middleton wore an off-the-shoulder gown from Solace London and Queen Mary’s emerald choker, which was previously worn by Princess Diana. The dress matched the green carpet and as reported by the blog Chronicling Kate, it was a rental piece from HURR — a U.K.-based fashion rental service. This subtle styling decision appropriately tied back to the night’s events, which were centered on restoring and protecting the planet.
No trip to Massachusetts was complete without a visit to Harvard. Middleton toured the campus in a custom Emilia Wickstead houndstooth dress. She carried a color-coordinated bag from Mulberry (it’s the Harlow style) and wore earrings by designer Lenique Louis. To complete the look, she wore black suede pumps from Gianvito Ross.
The couple visited Greentown Labs, a climate technology start-up incubator, to learn about its innovations. For the meet and greet, Middleton wore a wine-colored suit with a pink blouse. She thoughtfully matched the shade of her Chanel bag and Gianvito Rossi heels back to her ensemble.
Prince William and Middleton made a pit stop to watch the Boston Celtics take on Miami Heat. Her courtside outfit consisted of a vintage Chanel 1995 double-breasted, trimmed jacket styled with black pants and matching suede pumps from Gianvito Rossi. She accessorized with a gold chain necklace from Laura Lombardi and Lowie earrings.
Prince William and Middleton met with Boston’s Mayor Michelle Wu and her husband Conor Pewarski in City Hall. For the occasion, the princess wore a tartan print long-sleeve dress from Burberry, which matched back in color to her forest green coat, Emmy London pumps, and Mulberry bag. Her earrings are the Chunky Knot Baroque Pearl style from London-based brand Shyla.
You might fly in sweats or leggings for optimal comfort, but not Middleton. The royal stepped off the plane, ready to go, in a deep purple-colored turtleneck and pantsuit look complete with heels from Gianvito Rossi. She accessorized with Princess Diana’s sapphire and diamond earrings (the late royal once wore them to The Prince of Tides premiere back in 1992).
