It may be her last day in Canada, but the Duchess of Cambridge is still paying homage to her host country.

Catherine arrived at a reception at the Calgary Zoo’s ENMAX Conservatory Friday in a bright red satin and wool “Marianne” coatdress by Catherine Walker, plus her favorite nude L.K. Bennett pumps and the Queen’s maple leaf brooch, which she wore last week during Ottawa’s Canada Day festivities.

It was the second time the Duchess wore a Walker creation during her North American tour: the first was during a tree-planting ceremony in Ottawa’s Rideau Hall.

Catherine Walker is quite popular with the royal family; her dresses were favorites of the late Princess Diana, and Catherine’s mother Carol wore a pearly blue wool crepe coatdress by the British-based designer to the royal wedding in April.

Throughout her Canadian visit, Catherine has sported multiple looks from the same designers – aside from her Walker repeats, she’s worn two Erdem Moralioglu dresses and two Issa frocks – and even donned her favorite skinny jeans three days in a row. But the question remains: What will she wear when she arrives on American soil?
