Cable Knit Kate! When she’s not attending a glamorous gala or posh palace party, the Duchess of Cambridge is often spotted in sweaters and cable knit jumpers. On casual outings, the busy mom loves a simple sweater ensemble which she often pairs with skinny jeans, skirts and khaki pants. While not frequently photographed in her duchess downtime, there are still numerous engagements and older occasions when Kate was clearly committed to cable knit. The British born royal often opts for Ralph Lauren, a favorite of her sister-in-law Duchess Meghan who has her own cable knit collection and loves camel and black sweaters.

Here are Kate Middleton’s Best Cable Knit Sweater Moments:
