The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have embarked upon their three-day Royal Train Tour, leaving London’s Euston Station on Sunday evening.
Kate Middleton and Prince William met with essential transport workers at the station to thank them for their hard work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Shakin’ Stevens performed his festive hit, “Merry Christmas Everyone,” for the royals as they departed on their journey.
As noted by @WhatKateWore on Twitter, Duchess Kate re-wore a beloved mossy green Alexander McQueen coat that we previously saw her wearing during a trip to Bradford in January. According to @LadyParky79, the duchess is wearing a Maple Leaf scarf by York Scarves, which is available to shop on Etsy for just $21.10.
As revealed in a press release from Kensington Palace, Duchess Kate and Prince William will carry out a three-day Royal Train Tour “ahead of the Christmas holidays to pay tribute to the incredible work of individuals and organisations that have gone above and beyond in response to the coronavirus pandemic.”
While following the current coronavirus pandemic guidance set out by the government, Kate and William will “travel 1250 miles and undertake working visits, meeting frontline workers, volunteers, care home staff, teachers, schoolchildren and young people to hear about their experiences, sacrifices and the inspiring work they have done throughout this challenging year.”
Per a Kensington Palace spokesperson, “The Duke and Duchess are very much looking forward to shining a spotlight on the incredible work that has been done across the country throughout this difficult year and to sharing their gratitude on behalf of the nation for all those supporting their local communities ahead of the Christmas holidays.”
