Kate Middleton’s Closet Is Full of Amazing Jackets (but You Can Get Her Look for Less!)
If you’re like us and follow Kate Middleton religiously, you’ve probably noticed that she has an impressive collection of coats and jackets. That said, as a real-life duchess, she also has an impressive budget to match. And while we are all for oohing and ahhing (and wishing we had a royal bank account) at her stunning collection, what we really want to know is how we can get her look for less.
Lucky for you, we’ve done our research. Keep reading for some of the Duchess of Cambridge’s most stunning jackets and coats, plus their affordable counterparts.
1. This belted maroon coat with a fur collar detail
It’s no secret that Kate Middleton knows how to get into the festive spirit. On Christmas Day 2016, the Duchess was photographed on her way to a service at St. Mark’s Church in a belted maroon coat with a fur collar detail. While this coat is a perfect fit for the holiday season, we also love the look for cooler fall and winter days.
If you love this look and want something similar yet affordable. We’ve got the coat for you, ahead.

2. This royal blue wool coat
While attending the opening ceremony for the 2015 Rugby World Cup at Twickenham stadium, the Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant in a royal blue wool coat. Known for wearing bright colors, she styled her vibrant coat by buttoning the collar up close to her neck — a look we love.

3. This sporty-chic red down coat
We love Kate Middleton for many reasons, but perhaps one of our favorite things about the Duchess of Cambridge is she’s always down for a good time — especially if it involves physical activity. Case in point: This photo of her and Prince William partaking in a relay race ahead of the 2017 London Marathon. The Duchess chose to wear a fire engine red down jacket to the race, looking ultra sporty-chic.

5. This gorgeous powder blue silk jacket
While we’re used to seeing the Duchess of Cambridge in heavier, wool coats, we can’t help but swoon over the gorgeous powder blue silk duster jacket she wore to a garden party at Buckingham Palace. Like Princess Diana, Kate Middleton is a pro at monochromatic style choices, and we love how she matched her fascinator with this gorgeous blue jacket.
Try this bomber jacket with similar silky fabric
While we couldn’t find the exact same jacket, we did find a way to rock the unique powder blue silk fabric in a more everyday look with this silky bomber jacket from Forever 21.

7. This stunning black peacoat
It’s not every day we see the Duchess of Cambridge in head-to-toe black. While attending an annual ceremony in remembrance of the men and women who lost their lives while in the line of duty during World War I, Middleton wore a gorgeous black peacoat with black hardware and a textured collar.
Get the look with this coat from GUESS
While it may be the most expensive alternative on our list, this Faux-Fur Trimmed Skirted Peacoat from GUESS is almost identical to the one Kate Middleton wore in the previous image. From the faux-fur collar to the black buttons, we absolutely love the detail in this coat. You can pair it with a nice dress and heels for a night on the town or wear it every day (we know we would!).
8. This hot pink coat
While the holidays are a fun time to break out the red and emerald green, you can also use the holidays as an excuse to rock a pop of color. Speaking of, we love the hot pink coat Kate Middleton wore in December 2009 on her and Prince William’s first official visit to New York City as a couple.
