The Duchess of Sussex wore Karen Walker again as she threw gumboots in the rain.

This time it was a black blazer from a 2017 collection over a pair of J.Crew jeans, a pair of gold Boh Runga earrings gifted to her by the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, and her Jessica McCormack diamond necklace.

Both she and the Duke wore Swanndri gumboots; she a pair of tall equestrian-inspired Muck boots and he some slip-resistant work boots.

When they visited Pillars, the Duchess chose a simple sheath dress by American designer Brandon Maxwell, and a classic Burberry trench coat. The Duchess is a fan of Maxwell's designs, having worn a khaki green shirt dress by him in Sydney during the Royal Tour.
