The Duchess of Cambridge kicked off the New Zealand tour in a Catherine Walker coat and a matching Gina Foster hat. But the cutest accessory? Little Prince George on her arm, of course!
Wearing a black and white patterned Tory Burch frock, Kate took George to what must have been a very swanky playdate at Government House in Wellington on April 9.
The Duchess attended a wreath laying ceremony at the memorial in Seymour Square in Blenheim sporting a light blue peacoat by one of her favorite designers, Alexander McQueen.
At a state reception where a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Nick Cuthell was revealed. The fern emblem on her Jenny Packham dress matched the broach worn by the Queen in the portrait, as it is New Zealand's emblem.
Even royals can have dress-down days. Kate put together a preppy look with her Zara blazer, J Brand skinnies, Me + Em top and wedges for a sailing race in Auckland Harbour on April 11.
Kate stepped off (yet another) plane on Palm Sunday in a teal Emilia Wickstead dress with matching hat. The brooch she's wearing was borrowed from the Queen.
A gorgeous green Erdem coat was Kate's choice for a visit to the National Cycling Centre of Excellence and Avantidrome. She and Prince William were gifted a mini cycling shirt for Prince George.
While watching "Rippa Rugby" in the Forsyth Barr Statium and engaging with the kids who were playing, Kate chose comfortable jeans, sneaks and a sweater.
A visit to Christchurch City Councils building brings out the athlete in Kate. She takes part in a game of cricket while wearing -- what else? -- a fabulous Luisa Spagnoli skirt suit.
It didn't matter that this tweed Rebecca Taylor skirt suit is from 2011 -- Kate rocked it just the same.
The Duchess and Prince William tote Prince George off the plane from New Zealand as they arrive in Sydney. She chose a canary yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress and her go-to nude LK Bennett pumps for the occasion.
Kate surprised everyone by departing from her beloved British designers to opt for a classic Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress for her trip to Echo Point in the Blue Mountains.
The beach scene at the Royal Easter Show was the perfect setting for Kate to wear this eyelet Zimmermann dress with Stuart Weitzman sandals.
The Duchess wore a flower-print LK Bennett dress and navy pumps for a trip to the Royal Australian Airforce Base at Amberley.
For Easter Sunday services at St. Andrew's Cathedral, Kate looked appropriate and chic in a periwinkle confection from Alexander McQueen.
New parents toted adorable Prince George to the Taronga Zoo for a quick visit with the koalas. He was given a stuffed animal, but preferred to chew on something else.
Kate dons another Roksanda Ilincic design when she and Prince William visited an indigenous Training Academy in Ayers Rock, Australia.
The modern royal couple shows that some things just don't get old. This portrait is a re-creation of the one that Princess Diana and Charles took during their tour of Australia at Ayers Rock 31 years ago. Kate chose a white and gray printed Hobbs dress for the occasion.
Yet another Alexander McQueen ensemble makes an appearance on the tour. This light pink two-piece simple and fresh. She paired the look with nude LK Bennett heels.
Okay, we're green with envy over this one: Kate wore this belted Catherine Walker dress(/jacket?) to the National Arboretum in Australia.
The Duchess looked beautiful in the ivory knee-length Lela Rose dress she wore to a cocktail party hosted by the Governor General Peter Cosgrove and Her excellency Lady Cosgrove at Government House in Canberra, Australia.
