Kate Middleton's new haircut has been having quite the few days. First, it got to wear Princess Diana's beloved Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara, then hung out with Simpsons characters, pretend to talk on the phone, and even played ping-pong. Today, however, it was bestowed with the honor of wearing a lovely, holiday-appropriate houndstooth coat.
The Daily Mail reports the coat in question is from Reiss (a similar version's available here for $620). She wore it to visit patients and their caretakers at the Action on Addiction Centre in Warmister, England today.
Underneath, she paired it with a bright teal mid-length dress, which, if you've got a long memory for teal mid-length dresses, is actually a repeat — she wore the same one at a greeting in New Zealand in April 2014.
On that occasion, however, she paired it not with houndstooth but with a matching fascinator (and, of course, her longer hair):
