Although the years have changed and the number of children has increased, Kate’s stereotypical approach to dressing for Christmas has remained the same for the last 11 years.

And her 2022 outfit is no exception. Kate’s made-to-measure Philip Treacy hat matched her made-to-measure Alexander McQueen dress, but had a subtle feather detail on the hem that added a festive touch. She accessorised it with a new pair of Sézane earrings and an old pair of Dents brown suede gloves to match her Stuart Weitzman boots.
Beneath the warm layers, the mother-of-three reportedly wore a knitted midi dress, showing off her full mastery of high/low dressing skills. The Mango dress costs £35 and was the perfect base for her festive outfit.

The Princess of Wales’s festive outfits over the years
The Princess of Wales opted for a winter green ensemble and completed the look with dark brown boots, a clutch bag and gloves.
Kate usually opts for jewel shades that don’t usually match the style, but the winter cuffs and collar and the addition of a dark green fascinator bring the look together.
Kate went through her headband phase in 2018 and it worked out so well for her. Here to match the ruby jeweled shades of her Gianvito Rossi coat and heels.
Kate ventured into Christmas 2017 in a vibrant plaid style and fur hat.
A faux fur stole over Kate’s brown dress only upped her festive look in 2016. Plus matching the color of her clutch bag with Charlotte’s dress and tights? Cute!
The tweed boucle haircut was a new direction for Kate in 2014, but was perfectly appropriate for a rural setting.
In 2013, Kate was inspired by the dark green shade of her tartan coat dress.
The then Duchess of Cambridge chose a burgundy shade for her sheath dress and velvet hat for her first Christmas at Sandringham since marrying Prince William.
