A Royal Tour is a hotly anticipated event, not least because Kate Middleton's wardrobe is always something to marvel at. Having to toe the line between fashion and functionality is no easy feat, but we've come to expect a certain level of sartorial prowess from Kate on these trips. And the family's latest trip to Canada has been no exception so far. 
For Day Two of the Royal Tour, the Duchess visited the Immigrant Services Society wearing a red and white eyelet Alexander McQueen dress with scarlet-red pumps, a coordinating clutch, and pearl earrings. The piece is a bespoke dress inspired by the Alexander McQueen Resort 17 Collection which will be available later this year. Whilst backing her favourite British designer, Kate also gave a nod to Canada by wearing the countries national colours.

It is known that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, is a huge Alexander McQueen fan, opting for the designer for even her wedding dress back in 2011, designed by creative director, Sarah Burton. 
The punchy print is a more daring look for the Duchess who typically sticks to block colours, so we're excited to see if this new look is a precursor for outfits to come.
