Lusting After Duchess Kate’s Red Coat? Here Are 3 More Options to Take You Into Spring

A vision in red! Duchess Kate joined her husband, Prince William, at the Wales versus France Six Nations rugby match on Saturday, March 18, in Paris, wearing a stunning cherry-red coat.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 35, modeled the double-breasted Carolina Herrera piece in the swoonworthy shade while her husband happily cheered their home team — the Welsh — by her side. It was William’s first engagement as the patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, a role he recently took over from his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The game was just one of many activities scheduled for the royal couple while visiting France. They visited Les Invalides military hospital, the Musée d’Orsay and the Eiffel Tower, where they played a rugby match of their own with French children.

Though technically a duchess, Kate is the queen of recycling her wardrobe. The mom of Charlotte, 22 months, and George, 3, wore the same double-breasted coat in Yukon on the royal tour of Canada in September 2016. While Kate layered a black turtle neck to stay warm this time around, she paired her red coat with a pair of burgundy leather pumps by Tod’s in 2016.
