Monochrome magic! Kate Middleton ditches signature statement colours as she dons two black and white outfits on final day of Pakistan tour

  • Kate Middleton, 37, is often praised for her clever styling of colour and prints 
  • But today the Duchess of Cambridge took a break from her usual style
  • Royal donned full black and white outfit as she set off for Lahore in Pakistan
  • Changed into another monochrome ensemble as she departed plane for last day

The Duchess of Cambridge is known for taking cues from the Queen by stepping out in bright statement colours for royal engagements. 

But today Kate Middleton, 37, made a break away from her usual style as she stepped out in two monochrome outfits during the royal tour of Pakistan.

This morning, the Duchess wowed onlookers in a white kurta from Pakistani brand Élan as she joined Prince William, 37, as they prepared to fly to Islamabad for the final day of the tour.

And later the royal changed into a second all black-and-white outfit of the day, donning a smart black Beulah London Flora Coat over a white tunic for a visit to an Army Canine Centre in the capital.

Today marks the final day of the five day tour for Prince William and Kate, before they fly back to England to join Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, at home.

But Kate took the opportunity for two outfit changes ahead of her departing flight from the country, choosing to wear black-and-white for both of them.

This morning the couple were seen leaving Lahore, having been forced to stay overnight in the city after a terrifying electrical storm forced their plane to abandon its landing in the Pakistani capital.

Walking across the tarmac, the Duchess wore a white tunic from Pakistani brand Élan, which featured pretty black detailing, over a pair of white trousers.

The royal, who often favours colour over monochrome, has been widely praised for her elegant wardrobe during the Pakistan tour, where she has often donned traditional clothing as well as local designers.   

On arrival in the country she wore a blue and white bespoke Catherine Walker - a traditional Pakistani outfit comprised of a flared kurti, a long shirt, and trousers.

And yesterday she was praised for wearing a green shalwar kameez by Maheen Khan and headscarf.
