Kate Middleton Gray Coat and HatEven when you're as stunning as the Duchess of Cambridge you can't please everyone. Kate Middleton donned a seemingly-subdued gray coat dress, hat, and matching heels to celebrate Commonwealth Day with her husband and his royal family. While the muted shade is a definite departure from Kate's pretty pastels, it's still a look we love!


Check out how stunning the mom of two looks in this hat designed by one of Princess Diana's favorite milliners, John Boyd. The coat dress, with a tiny pattern and lace-effect overlay, was created by Erdem, while her matching gray heels were made by Rupert Sanderson.
