The Simply Luxurious Life®: Princess Catherine Middleton’s Touring Style  

July 10, 2011

Princess Catherine Middleton’s Touring Style

During the past two weeks of touring Canada and southern California, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William Windsor and Kate Middleton) have been under constant watch by the media; however, and the couple hasn’t missed a beat in making a wonderful impression where even celebrities ironically were the ones fawning to have a mere moment of face time with the royal couple.
Specifically Princess Catherine (as she now prefers to be called rather than Kate) has revealed a keen eye for tasteful and flattering wardrobe choices while being on a limited budget and choosing not to bring along a stylist as she stated it would be a ‘waste of money’, but instead only choosing to bring her hair stylist – James Pryce.
With a handful of previously seen dresses, Catherine has a preference for J. Brand mid-waist skinny jeans when casual attire is called for as well as a sound sense of foundational classic style as she wore nude pumps by L.K. Bennett rather frequently during their 11 day tour.
I have gathered together all of her captured stylish choices during their trip as today will be their last day in Los Angles before heading back home to England.

I am becoming more and more enamored with Catherine, thank you for the wonderful roundup. I love her nude LK Bennett pumps, a perfect go-to shoe. Her taste is classic beyond her time, no?

Wonderful to see her look in this way...thanks a million for this, Shannon! Those nude pumps are lovely and add the perfect modern touch to what could be a too-classic look. Marvelous!!

Thanks for gathering these - I had missed a couple of the outfits. I'm impressed she repeated things like shoes and purses.
