It's not sweat pants.
What, you mean you don't step off a trans Atlantic flight with your two small children wearing stiletto heels and a perfectly placed fascinator?
Well, Kate Middleton does, but that's not what surprised us a little about her Jenny Packham ensemble. It's actually the colour...unless you, unlike 99% of us, thought she would step out in a blue outfit instead of the expected red.
That DoC...always keeping us on our toes.

In our excitement for the amazing outfits that are bound to accompany the British Royal's upcoming Canadian visit, we’ve rounded up all the times Kate Middleton and Sophie Trudeau have worn the exact same styles.
Clean and Classic
Both Kate and Sophie have been known to keep their wardrobes stocked with neutrals. An all white ensemble gives off a classy, regal elegance.

When they do add a pop of colour, red is a favourite. Sophie Trudeau and Kate Middleton have both donned short and long dress in the eye-catching colour.

Ladies in Lace
Lace is frequently seen on both women because of the feminine detailing that it adds to their outfits, without being over the top.

Who says neutrals have to be boring? In these gorgeous winter coats, Sophie and Kate prove that grey can be far from bland.

Florals are a great way for the royal ladies to have some fun with colour. Kate and Sophie have both been known to sport dark floral dresses.

The Cambridges have landed! And for four people who've just done the equivalent of a red eye (albeit on a private plane; with mounties waiting to greet them) they don't look half bad. Charlotte does look a bit like she just remembered she left something on the plane.
Welcome to Canada guys!
Look at you, Prince William, saving lives even when you're not at the controls of a Coast Guard rescue helicopter!
The prince leapt into action earlier today to help a hapless gentleman who accidentally tripped backwards over a pylon while waiting for the royal couple to arrive at an engagement today.
No sooner had the uniformed chap hit the ground than he was back on his feet, pulled back to dignity (and into the 'most embarrassing moment record books) by some helping royal hands.
Kate was there too, rushing over with some benign chit chat to make it all feel a bit less awkward in that 'no, I'm fine, really I'm fine' moment.
