Great Scott! The Duchess of Cambridge Wears Red Jonathan Saunders Coat In Scotland

By Jessica Vince - 8 December 2014


Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have just arrived in Scotland - or rather the Earl and Countess of Strathearn, as they're known in Scotland. They're paying a visit to the Strathearn Community Campus in Crieff on this fine Thursday morning and in true literal dressing style, Kate is wearing a red striped coat by Jonathan Saunders.

Of course, Mr Saunders hails from Scotland making it a fitting choice for the occasion. What's more, the Royal Arms of Scotland features a red lion and she co-ordinates perfectly with the school's pupils (below). Yep, it's another political winner from our K-Middy.

This isn't the first time Kate has worn an ensemble by London Fashion Week favourite Jonathan Saunders. Back in September 2012, she went tropical for a trip to the exotic Soloman Islands in a dress by the Scottish-born designer. And just last month, during her tour of Australia, the brunette beauty wore a Jonathan Saunders cream knit with skinny jeans and pumps to attend a Rippa Rugby tournament at Forsyth Barr Stadium. It's unsurprising she's a fan Britain's great fashion star given that his simple but sexy dresses have already been adopted by those in a similar official position as Kate, such as Samantha Cameron and Michelle Obama.
