Kate Middleton Debuts New Haircut in Polka Dot Dress & Suede Pumps for Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte’s First Day at Lambrook School

It’s back-to-school season, and Kate Middleton was stylishly dressed for the occasion while taking her children to Lambrook School in Bracknell on Wednesday. Middleton and Prince William brought Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte to discover the academy and meet headmaster Jonathan Perry. For the occasion, the royal wore a warm brown collared Rixo midi dress with a button-up front and 3/4-length sleeves. Giving the classic dress a preppy spin was an allover white polka dot print, as well as an attached belt. Middleton finished her look with a delicate bracelet and Annoushka pearl drop earrings.

When it came to footwear, Middleton opted for a classic set of pointed-toe pumps. Her pair featured brown suede uppers with triangular toes and stiletto heels that totaled at least 3 inches in height. The pair created a monochrome moment while continuing the royal’s renowned sharp style streak in her go-to shoe silhouette.
