Kate Middleton Takes Grimsby, ‘The Duchess Diary’ Celebrates Her Many Coats [PHOTOS & VIDEO]

Wearing the same chocolate Hobbs coat she wore on a trip last year to Liverpool, the Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Grimsby, England (about a four-hour drive from London) to meet with patients from St. Andrew’s Hospice, and pay visits to Peaks Lane Fire Station and the National Fishing Heritage Center.

One little girl was dressed in a princess costume as she gave Catherine a bouquet of flowers.  Catherine also met with members of The Prince’s Trust, a  foundation set up by Prince Charlesin the 70s to give opportunities to underprivileged teens.

According to the Daily Mail’s Rebecca English, Catherine embarked on what St. James’ Palace calls an “away day,” where she can cram in as many engagements in one area as possible. 

On the topic of coats, I had a fine chat with What Kate Wore’s editor-in-chief about the Duchess and her closet full of coats.  Catherine has the ability to transform even the simplest piece of outerwear into a chic look, copied by millions the world over.

Watch the video below, and tell us which of Catherine’s coats is your favorite.
