For the outfit, Middleton started with a neutral-colored blazer from Reiss. The blazer had shiny metallic buttons, and she accessorized her lapel with a pin in the colors of Ukraine’s flag, yellow and blue. Underneath, she went with a white blouse that had a crew neckline. She also wore a pair of black crepe cigarette trousers from LK Bennett that added a nice pop of contrast.

Prince William opted for a slouchy navy blue suit and brown suede dress shoes for a uniformed appearance.

Middleton grounded her ensemble with a pair of black Gianvito Rossi 105 smooth leather pumps. The heels had a height of approximately 4 inches and had a pointed-toe design for a modern finish.

When it comes to Middleton and her clothing tastes, she tends to fancy sophisticated and refined styles. For example, she recently donned a vibrant blue cashmere jumper from Alexander McQueen coordinated with sleek black trousers and hidden pointed-toe pumps while visiting the Ukrainian Culture Centre in London to learn about the UK’s support of Ukraine. She also slipped on a pink cranberry-colored overcoat paired with a matching roll-neck sweater and pointed-toe black suede pumps while visiting Nower Hill High School in Harrow, London, to learn about neuroscience and the importance of early childhood development.

When she graces red carpets, Middleton wears beautiful creations from brands like Jenny Peckham, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Catherine Walker and Ralph Lauren.
