The Princess of Wales is renowned for her holiday dressing — sticking to her famous tried and true festive fashion formula — the princess often opts for longline coats in hunter green, tweed, tartan or aubergine.

She frequently accompanies the royal family dressed in sharp and smart winter clothing with little fuss or festive flourishes. Instead, she opts for colors of the season and dons pine colored wool coats and tailored plum toppers. She will often wear her most affordable day dresses underneath her tailored dresscoats and frequently wears Kiki McDonough accessories and family brooches. More often than not, she’s inclined to wear suede boots or pumps, burgundy or mossy colored hats and occasionally wears leather gloves or bow adorned accessories.

Here are All of Kate Middleton’s Best Christmas Day Fashion Moments:


The princess stepped out with Prince Harry to celebrate the Christmas season after marrying into the royal family just around 8 months prior. Kate wore a bespoke burgundy funnel neck coat by a private British dressmaker, a Jane Corbett Trillby hat and Mascaro suede black platform pumps.

For Christmas service with the Middleton family at St. Mark’s church, Kate opted for her traditional palette of garnet garments. Kate wore her Hobbs Celeste coat in chestnut brown with Aquatalia suede Ruby Dry ankle booties in espresso brown. She accessorized with a Pickett London pashmina scarf in red along with a Gucci red canvas monogrammed horsebit evening clutch.

In December 2013, Kate brought the seasonal sartorial spirit for church services at St. Mary Magdalene with the royal family. She donned a McQ (Alexander McQueen) Black Watch coat, Gina Foster green beret hat and Aquatalia rhumba black boots. She accessorized the look with Kiki green amethyst earrings (possibly a Christmas gift from Prince William).

For her festive fashion statement in 2014, Kate did a major pivot away from her traditional holiday styles and opted for a muted Moloh Turpin coat. The military style tweed coat from the British brand was accented with a Really Wild silk scarf in ‘Autumn Partridge’ and Emmy London dark brown Valerie pumps. She accessorized the earthy style with Cornelia James Imogen brown gloves with a bow, Catherine Zoraida leafy gold hoop earrings and a Lock and Company brown Betty Boop hat. On this somewhat rare occasion, royal watchers identified Kate’s hidden dress as her Hobbs animal print shirtdress.

Celebrating the Christmas season with the Royal Family at Sandringham, Kate brought the festive feels to her holiday walk alongside the Crown crew. The princess opted for a Max Mara Sportmax pre-fall long belted coat in green and wore an Emilia Wickstead croc embossed belt over the Italian made topper. Kate gave a major Middleton shoutout in the form of her accessories opting for her Asprey London woodland necklace featuring an 18 karat gold acorn charm and a diamond oak leaf brooch with studded acorns. (The Middleton Coat of Arms features the woodland flora). The princess finished the look with Kiki green amethyst cushion drop earrings, a Lock and Company deep emerald green hat and her Mulberry Bayswater wallet in black suede. On this occasion, the princess wore a very budget minded Great Plains painted pleated ‘pine needle’ Cezane dress along with her favorite knee-high Aquatalia rhumba black suede boots.

Kate repeated a previous seasonal style to celebrate the holidays with her young children Princess Charlotte and Prince George along with the entire Middleton family in Englefield, Berkshire. The royal mum wore her Hobbs Unlimited Celeste belted coat, Tod’s Fringed leather pumps in burgundy and donned an ASOS Faux Fur mini slot collar. She accessorized the Christmas chic ensemble with a Mulberry Bayswater clutch in cranberry.

Princess Kate was all smiles outfitted in a Miu Miu plaid peacoat alongside Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry. The royals made the walk to church while greeting royal fans and holiday well-wishers outfitted in their seasonal best. Kate paired the designer coat with a Peruvian Connection Vallnord Alpaca Fur Hat, Tod’s black suede block heel pumps and Kiki McDonough citrine and diamond flower drop earrings.



Heading to the traditional Christmas Day Service at St. Mary Magdalene’s Church on the Queen’s estate in Norfolk, Kate opted for a stylish seasonal display. The busy royal donned a bright berry red Catherine Walker coat which she accessorized with a custom Jane Taylor padded burgundy Halo Band headpiece featuring a flouncy and festive bow at the back. The vintage inspired headband perfectly coordinated with her custom coat with a velvet accented collar and cuffs. She added her cranberry Bayswater slim suede clutch with the brand’s iconic Postman’s Lock for some posh panache. And the brunette beauty elevated the look of the charming and cheery ruby red outfit with Gianvito 105 Royale Burgundy pumps. Finally, she accessorized with her family gifted oak leaf brooch and Asprey oak leaf small hoop earrings.



The following year Kate made a major pivot away from her on theme red and green dressing to don a mocha colored Catherine Walker based on the designer’s ‘Larrisa’  mohair dresscoat. The full skirt was removed but the “wintry Russian aesthetic” remained. Kate paired the unique and cozy coat with a Lock and Company forest green hat which perfectly coordinated with her Emmy Greenery suede pumps and Emmy Natasha clutch in the same emerald green. Underneath the faux fur trimmed coat she donned her Michael Kors peacock printed green shirtdress and finished the look with Kiki candy green amethyst earrings.



The Wales family did not make the traditional seasonal walk to church — instead, Kate and William visited neighboring European countries during the holidays on the royal train tour in 2021. The following year, Kate was briefly seen leaving St. Mary Magdalene Church on the Sandringham Estate. Kate wore a Blaze Milano ‘Lahloo’ checked brown blazer (similar) jacket and Philip Treacy pheasant hat.



Dubbed a ‘Princess Peter Pan’ Kate opted to recycle her dark green Alexander McQueen military coat for the royal family’s annual festive religious gathering. She paired the bespoke coat with her favorite sweater dress –the Mango Flurry ribbed knit midi and her beloved Rossi Glen brown suede block heel boots. She accessorized with a wide brim felt green hat by Philip Treacy complete with a feather in her cap. For accessories, she wore Sezane Dina stone dangle earrings. Finally, she carried a clutch throwback and opted for the Stuart Weitzman ‘Muse’ in chocolate and wore her leather Dents ‘Evelyn’ button trimmed gloves in brown.
