On Wednesday morning, Duchess Kate stepped out in an elegant skirt suit that took a page from the Queen’s fashion sense. The suit was magenta in color and complimented her body perfectly.

Her outfit was recycled from a February 2017 outing to a mental health conference. The skirt suit cost around $ 3,515.

For her morning visit to the Royal Opera House in London, Duchess Kate, 37, chose to copy the Queen’s fashion style by wearing a magenta or lilac Oscar de la Renta skirt suit. She wore the two-piece suit with a pair of black opaque tights.

The Duchess also had the pleasure of meeting Royal Ballet principal dancers Lauren Cuthbertson, Laura Morera, and Vadim Muntagirov. All three performers spoke about their costumes.

Kate has a great interest in the textile and manufacturing industry because her paternal great-great-grandfather, Francis Martineau Lupton, was a mill owner. He successfully ran the family’s textile manufacturing business, William Lupton & Company, with his three brothers.

Before leaving the venue, the Duchess was allowed to sit in on the rehearsals for the romantic ballet, “The Two Pigeons.”

On Tuesday, Kate visited the King Henry’s Walk Garden in Islington while dressing the part. She went there to learn how the project brought people together through gardening and food growing.
