The royal family arrived in Victoria, British Columbia, on Saturday for their second official royal tour of Canada, and they look pretty much the opposite of us after a transatlantic flight. And, best of all—in addition to seeming totally not jet-lagged or in a rush to deplane after nine hours—they are all perfectly coordinating outfit-wise in blue. It’s good to be royalty.
Looking as fresh-faced and completely put-together as always (no leggings and oversized sweater here), the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, stepped off the plane in a cobalt shift dress by Jenny Packham, a sparkling brooch and a matching fascinator—plus a pair of three-inch tan heels. Meanwhile, Prince William was all business in a navy suit, white shirt and red-and-navy striped tie.
In microfashion, the rest of the clan was feeling a little blue, too: Prince George, 3, was the picture of classic English style in a checked oxford underneath a sky-blue sweater—plus shorts and knee socks that are almost too cute for words. As he waited for his entourage to get going, he gifted us all with a little wave (OK, OK, he was actually just waving at Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau). And Princess Charlotte, already 1, coordinated with her mom in a pale blue floral dress and probably the cutest pair of blue baby Mary Janes we’ve ever seen.
Can we also point out that Kate is a pro at walking down those unstable-looking plane steps while carrying Charlotte and holding George’s hand? Definitely Mom of the Year status.
“We are so pleased that George and Charlotte can be with us… beginning their own lifetime of friendship with this wonderful country,” Prince Williams said in a speech later that day, addressing the crowds gathered to welcome the family. “Catherine and I have asked to meet as many people from as many walks of life as we can while we are here.”
The royal tour of Canada extends through October 1, and we’ll be on the lookout for even more amazing fashion moments from the royal family.
