Kate Middleton, who is currently on a 19-day trip to New Zealand and Australia along with Prince William and Prince George, will reportedly have over 30 dress changes during the tour.
The first outfit which Kate wore to arrive in New Zealand on Monday morning gave only a hint at the Duchess of Cambridge's style statement over the coming days.
The 32-year-old sported truly a regal look in a striking red tailored coat by Catherine Walker, which was also a favourite designer of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, and a red pillbox hat by Gina Foster.
In fact, Catherine's appearance off the plane at Wellington Military Terminal in New Zealand echoed Diana's memories. The late Princess of Wales wore a similar red ensemble when she arrived in Leicester in March 1984.
Kate Middleton is also expected to be seen in low hemline dresses during the tour. Her first outfit was indeed, if not very low, below the knee level.
Kate has packed lots of statement jewels from the Queen's personal collection to wear during the tour and she wore one for the first day as well.
The Duchess of Cambridge teamed her red dress with a diamond and platinum silver fern brooch, a symbol of New Zealand, gifted to the monarch by a committee of women's organisations in Auckland on her visit to the country in 1954.
Kate completed her ensemble with nude tights and dark stilettos.
