Kate Middleton and Prince William have kicked off their Caribbean Royal Tour in Belize. The duo’s eight-day tour will also include visits to Jamaica and the Bahamas on behalf of Queen Elizabeth. The occasion — notably similar to the Queen’s first visit to Jamaica in 1953 — will also be a prime opportunity for the pair to champion causes like the Earthshot Prize.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Belize in a monochrome outfit by Jenny Packham while touching down in Belize. Featuring a sharp collar, long sleeves and a peplum waist, the knee-length number was composed of deep blue lace — worn in honor of Belize’s flag’s colors. Middleton accessorized elegantly with a matching clutch. Completing her look was a sapphire necklace and drop earrings, both created from jewelry gifted to the late Diana, Princess of Wales by the royal family of Saudi Arabia for her wedding in 1981.

When it came to shoes, Middleton opted for her go-to style, pointed-toe pumps, from one of her go-to brands — Emmy London. Her style featured blue suede uppers, complete with triangular toes. The pair gained an added height boost with stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height, bringing a sharp finish to Middleton’s look.
