On Thursday, the Princess of Wales participated in a fun engagement when she and Prince William visited the Dog & Duck Pub in Soho, London, to meet the staff and learn how they are getting ready for the weekend of the coronation.
Catherine wore her red Eponine fitted coat dress over her white Suzannah midi dress, which she had previously worn to Wimbledon, and white heels for her visit to the storied pub. Additionally, she included her white Mulberry ‘Amberley’ bag.
The Princess accessorized with one of her favorite pairs of pearl drop earrings from Maria Black and styled her trademark brunette hair loosely in waves with her usual natural makeup.
The Prince and Princess later interacted with members of the public on Frith Street while grinning and chatting with admirers of the royal family.
All members of the royal family have a busy few days ahead of them because King Charles’ official coronation festivities start on Friday.
On Friday, the monarch will host a luncheon with working royal family members, Realm Governors General, and Prime Ministers. In the evening, overseas royalty will attend a formal reception at Buckingham Palace, where Catherine is expected to attend dressed in a gown and tiara.
The Prince and Princess were recently pictured attending a rehearsal at Westminster Abbey in preparation for Saturday’s coronation ceremony. Their eldest son Prince George is gearing up to play a significant role in the events.
Catherine arrived at the rehearsal in a stylish L.K. Bennett dress, and Princess Charlotte wore one of Rachel Riley’s signature floral dresses.
The Princess of Wales is anticipated to don a floral headpiece rather than a tiara or coronet, as is the general expectation that those who don’t have official roles in the coronation ceremony will dress in formal daywear to the occasion.
