One of the colour ways she does particularly well is pastels, and we think we've found the ideal coat that we know she (and you) will enjoy. Take a look at Marks & Spencer's 'Belted Single Breasted Tailored Coat.' Costing a very reasonable £59, this lovely number is designed in the brightest pastel lilac and currently, all sizes are available.

It's made in a regular fit, with a self-tie belt that draws in the waist for a flattering shape. The single breasted button front offers a neat effect, and there's even patch pockets too.

Kate wore a pastel Mulberry coat in 2019
Our favourite pastel coat Kate has worn was back in 2019, when she visited Northern Ireland with husband Prince William. The royal memorably wore a retro style, baby-blue cape coat dress by Mulberry with a chic belted waist. She added navy blue high heel shoes and carried a smart box clutch.

Many have said it's one of Kate's most directional coats as not only does it feature the cape, but the pastel colour is bold and crisp; she tends to favour coats in primary colours, so this number was a welcome change for the royal.
