The Rain Didn't Stop Kate Middleton From Wearing Her Favorite Shoes
She loves her heels.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have kicked off another royal tour. (Their last overseas trip was to Ireland back in March 2020.) The duo are headed to the Caribbean for one week, on behalf of Queen Elizabeth and her Platinum Jubilee year, which celebrates her 70 years on the throne. The couple’s first stop was Belize, a country on the eastern coast of Central America. Since this is the couple’s first official royal tour in two years, Middleton is bound to have packed her best attire. To keep track of Middleton’s Caribbean tour outfits, TZR has compiled a list of her impeccable looks for you, ahead.
Since the husband and wife duo are visiting tropical countries — they’ll be in Jamaica and The Bahamas after Belize — Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge won’t be in their typical polished knit tops and wool jackets. Instead, Middleton, in particular, will opt for colorful midi dresses and comfy wedges — one of her go-to summer shoes. You can, however, anticipate her rocking monochrome ensembles, as she adores this easy put-together look. As for accessories, Middleton will likely call on the pieces she inherited from Princess Diana to wear on the tour so that the late royal is with them in spirit.
Peruse through all of Middleton’s outfits, so far, on her royal tour of the Caribbean. The post will be updated with more of her fashionable tropical attire as they pop up, so make sure to check back.

A Mint-Colored Dress
The Duchess of Cambridge arrived to visit the Sybil Strachan Primary School in The Bahamas and was greeted with a rain shower. However, the weather didn’t damper her spirits as she exited the car with a smile while wearing a minty green chiffon dress with white pumps.
A Custom-Made Look
For one of their last stops on the Caribbean tour, Prince William and Middleton arrived to The Bahamas. As she has done so on the trip thus far, the Duchess of Cambridge arrived wearing a look that matched her destination’s scenery. Her Emilia Wickstead custom dress echoed the turquoise water as The Bahamas is known for this, along with its stunning beaches. She wore Sézane earrings and Gianvito Rossi pumps.
A Classy Departure Outfit
As Middleton departed from the airport in Jamaica on March 24, she wore an Emilia Wickstead dress and Gianvito Rossi pumps. The royal is certainly a fan of the green color trend for spring as evidenced by her latest look. She accessorized with Kiki McDonough earrings and the Queen’s Hummingbird Brooch.
A White Lace Dress
Middleton wore a lace cap-sleeve dress with matching colored heels from Emmy London while attending the inaugural Commissioning Parade. (The event was held for service personnel from across the Caribbean who have recently completed the Caribbean Military Academy’s Officer Training Program.) She attended that quintessential royal touch via a Philip Treacy hat and carried an Anya Hindmarch clutch. For jewelry, she wore the queen’s diamond and pearl drop earrings along with Princess Diana’s Nigel Milne three-strand pearl bracelet.
A Fancy Dinner Gown
For the Governor-General of Jamaica’s formal state dinner, Middleton relied on one of her favorite designers — Jenny Packham — for her evening gown. The royal has worn countless creations from the British fashion designer. This time, Middleton wore a brand new custom-made emerald green off-the-shoulder dress, which featured a ruffled neckline, a full tulle skirt, and glittery sequins cascading down the bodice. She completed the ethereal look with a sparkling diamond and emerald earring/bracelet set, which were loaned to her by Queen Elizabeth. Middleton also had a Royal Victorian Order badge pinned to her waist.
A Sleek Pantsuit
Throughout her royal career, Middleton has steadily focused on the importance of early childhood education. Thus during the tour, she wanted to highlight the work of one of Jamaica’s leading colleges that train teachers in early education: Shortwood Teacher Training College in Kingston. Middleton also delivered her first speech on the tour at the school and praised the staff for their hardworking efforts and enthusiasm in helping the lives of young people. For the professional occasion, she opted for a crisp white Alexander McQueen pantsuit, orange Ridley blouse, and white Jimmy Choo pumps. When it came to accessories, she carried a vintage Sunkist-colored beaded bag from Willow Hilson that had a chic bamboo handle and wore her Maria Black’s Cha Cha pearl drop earrings from before.
A Colorful Striped Day Dress
After a meeting at King’s House with the Governor-General of Jamaica, Sir Patrick Allen, Middleton switched into a comfortable day dress for her afternoon activities. The royal couple visited Trench Town Culture Yard Museum, where Bob Marley lived. She changed into a whimsical vintage Willow Hilson striped dress and comfy tan Russell & Bromley slingback heels. For jewelry, she wore Maria Black’s Cha Cha pearl drop earrings and the same gold bangle from her airport look.
A Joyful Gown
Middleton and Prince William’s RAF Voyager plane landed in Jamaica on March 22. The Duchess of Cambridge made a fashionable entrance in her joyful yellow Brigitte dress from Roksanda. (Similar to her royal blue outfit for Belize, this time her dress shade subtly paid tribute to the colors of Jamaica’s flag, which are black, green, and yellow.) She carried a white Salvatore Ferragamo Vera clutch and wore Aquazzura’s Cece pumps. Middleton also wore Sézane’s Celeste mother of pearl drop earrings and a gold bangle from Jamaican designer Lashawndla Bailey-Miller.
A Vintage Jacket
On the royal couple’s last day in Belize, Middleton wore a vintage burnt-orange Yves Saint Laurent jacket and Alexander McQueen white flared trousers to the airport. (Fun fact: she bought the outerwear years ago when she was studying at the University of St. Andrews with Prince William.) To allow her top to stand out, she wore white accessories such as a Mulberry’s Amberley crossbody bag and Aquazzura’s Cece pumps. For jewelry, she went with an affordable pair of Coral Shell drop earrings from Anthropologie and Halcyon Days Maya Torque gold bangle in aquamarine.
A Glamorous Sequin Dress
Middleton went viral when she wore a glamorous, floor-length pink sequined dress from The Vampire’s Wife. Love the Sales, a website that aggregates sales online, said in a press statement that hours after she showed up at the Cahal Pech Ruins, Belize in the shimmering gown, there was a 288% surge in fashion for ruffle dresses. (The ruffle sequin creation serves as the pink counterpart to her green dress from the label, which she wore back in 2020 on her tour of Dublin.) The Duchess of Cambridge carried a white clutch and wore silver Jimmy Choo Mimi heels plus O’Nitaa earrings.
A Laid-Back Outfit
The husband and wife duo wore another color-coordinating outfit to visit the Caracol Archaeological Site in Belize. They opted for laid-back looks, which consisted of olive green bottoms, brown leather belts, and black sunglasses. Prince William paired his pieces with a moss-green button-up and brown shoes. Meanwhile, Middleton styled her high-waisted, G-Star cargo skinny pants with a fitted white scoop T-shirt and gold twist hoops from Spell of Love. She also wore her favorite white Superga 2750 Cotu sneakers. (She has had this style since 2017 and even owns a pair in the green colorway.)
A Summertime Dress
The royal couple visited a family-run cacao farm in Belize on March 20. Later in the day, they visited Hopkins, a village on the coast known as the cultural center of the Garifuna community. For the day’s activities, Middleton wore a floral Tory Burch midi dress and complementing Sézane Charlie blue earrings. She completed her look with a pair of beige Stuart Weitzman Minx wedges and an Anya Hindmarch straw fan clutch.
A Blue Top & Skirt Set
Middleton and Prince William arrived at the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport to start their royal tour of the Caribbean on March 19. The two coordinated in blue-hued attire. Middleton wore a royal blue lace Jenny Packham skirt suit, which featured a belted top with padded shoulders and a midi skirt. The rich shade paid tribute to Belize’s national flag — the country’s colors are red and royal blue. Meanwhile, Prince William matched in a lighter shade suit with a navy tie.
