The Duchess of Cambridge just took sartorial inspiration from an unexpected icon

  • You know what’ underrated? A cape. Mary Poppins knows it, and so does Kate Middleton apparently. The royal is currently on tour with Prince William in Northern Ireland, and seemed to have taken inspiration from one of your favourite literary characters for her look on day 2.

    The Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up warm in a chic blue button-up cape coat by Mulberry, so on trend for the new season.

    She kept things tonal with a navy Jimmy Choo clutch and suede Rupert Sanderson court shoes. As for her jewellery, we all know about her sapphire engagement ring of course, which she paired with matching earrings.

    The look is a lovely nod to Emily Blunt’s latest movie, in which she reprises the role of the magical nanny, wearing a checked blue cape coat for the occasion- judge for yourselves.

    The Duke and Duchess are expected to visit children at the Braid Arts Center later today. Just saying.
