The royal mom braved the chilly temperatures of the Yukon in a brilliant red coat – her third red look in three days
Princess Kate is seeing red!
For the third time in three days, the stylish royal cut a striking figure in red – a nod to her host country (red is the Canadian flag’s color).
The royal mom braved the chilly temperatures (36 degrees!) in Whitehorse, Yukon, in a brilliant red Carolina Herrera coat for her arrival at the MacBride Museum of Yukon History on Wednesday.
Kate accessorized the wool and cashmere blend coat dress, which retails for $1,915, with a burgundy suede clutch by Mulberry. And instead of her luxe red suede heels, Kate opted for a bold pair of deep purple chunky heels by Tod’s that retail for around $500.
Red has proved a winning color for Kate during the royal family’s tour. She dazzled in a gorgeous off-the-shoulder deep red satin gown by British designer Preen (paired with Queen Elizabeth’s diamond maple leaf brooch!) at a glamorous reception at the Government House in Victoria on Monday. Earlier that day, she wore a stunning red and white Alexander McQueen dress during a day trip to Vancouver.
While visiting Whitehorse, Kate and Prince William sent a morse code telegraph that was converted into their first-ever personal tweet at a telegraph station.

This wasn’t the first time the Whitehorse telegraph office was graced by royalty – Queen Elizabeth visited with Prince Philip in 1959.
The royal parents also joined local children for a storytelling session before viewing the town’s Healing Totem Pole and meeting members of the group Bring Youth Toward Equality, an organization that promotes empowerment and mental health among young people in the Yukon and north Canada.
They also stopped to greet some of the locals who lined up early in the morning for a chance to see the royal couple. William even stopped to compliment 5-month-old Leo on his choice of a fuzzy bear onesie.
“That is definitely the best way to be dressed today!” William told the youngster.
They’ll wrap up their time in Whitehorse with a visit to the Youth Art Festival and then depart for the small town of Carcross where they will attend a mountain biking festival.
