The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's surprise visit to Northern Ireland saw the royal pair take on a whole host of public engagements, from canoeing to pulling pints.

What clothes does one pack for such a trip?

Once again, Kate proved her sartorial skills with savvy-choices and quick outfit changes.

Here's everything the Duchess wore during the jam-packed tour. 

Arriving at Windsor Park, the home of football in Northern Ireland, the Kate wore a striking red Carolina Herrera coatdress as she greeted fans.

She paired the coatdress, which she has previously worn on engagements in France and Canada, with a pair of lace up ankle boots from LK Bennett (£199).

The 37-year-old made a quick change before taking to the pitch, wearing a Barbour jacket (£159) for a kickabout.

She teamed the light jacket with black sports leggings and pair of navy New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz trainers (£80).

On a day of competition for the royals, the pair later travelled to the Roscor Youth Village charity in Co Fermanagh where Kate and William went head to head in a canoeing race on Lough Erne.

Kate wore an uber-preppy cricket-inspired V-neck cable knit jumper from Ralph Lauren for the competition, keeping her look casual with black simple skinny jeans and her rather affordable New Balance trainers.

The Duchess  looked elegant as she arrived at the Empire Music Hall, Belfast in a mint, lurex midi dress by Missoni and a pair of Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito' Praline suede pumps, which are also a favourite of This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby.

Kate accessorised with a nude Mulberry clutch bag as well as earrings (£2,100) and a matching pendant (£1,500) from Kiki McDonough, one of her favourite jewellery brands.

Despite her dress costing a whopping £1,590, the mother-of-three wasn't afraid to get a bit dirty as she jumped behind the bar to pour her own pint of Harp Ice at the reception for young leaders at the entertainment venue.

On the couple's second day in Northern Ireland, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a bespoke royal blue dress from designer Jenny Packham to meet Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland at Hillsborough Castle.
