While you were sleeping the Duchess of Cambridge stepped off her royal jet in another colour-popping dress on day six of the royal tour. Following on from yesterday's emerald Erdem coat, she wore a turqoise Emilia Wickstead sleeved dress with a cinched in waist and pleated skirt, falling above the knee.
The Duchess paired it with a matching blue hat by milliner Jane Taylor, with some sparkle on loan from the Queen. Kate wore the Queen's diamond fern brooch, which was given to the Queen in 1954 by the women of Auckland. Prince William might have a few words about this look as it has been reported that she said to a local Evie Hayes, 68, about her Erdem coat: 'I like it but William thinks it is a bit bright.'

On the latest leg of the royal tour, the couple were visiting Dunedin, South Island where after a traditional welcome from the Maori people of South Island, they went to a Sunday service at the Cathedral Church of St Paul. With the familiar grey skies and the sound of bagpipes William joked on arrival that it was 'like being in Edinburgh.'

Kate then changed into a more casual outfit to attend a Rippa Rugby tornement at Forsyth Barr Stadium, where Kate and Wills coached different teams for a game of tag rugby. Kate wore skinny jeans, a Jonathan Saunders cream knit and pumps for the game. This time William evened the score after Kate's sailing success, as his team won 30-20.

It's not surprising Kate chose a look from one of her favourite designers Emelia Wickstead, as she is a New Zealand born London based designer. Very fitting, non?
Kate is certainly a fan of Emilia's use of colour as she has worn candy floss pink, yellow, turquoise and baby blue creations. Last year she wore a yellow Wickstead coat to Queen’s Buckingham Palace garden party and a pale blue dress to an evening reception hosted by the National Portrait Gallery in London.
The designer was also behind that rose pink number with a pleated skirt that Kate wore for her first ever Buckingham Palace garden party. What's more, the designer dressed a handful of guests for the Royal Wedding, including Kate’s cousin Lucy, Lady Kitty Spencer and Emma Parker Bowles.
