As someone who's been writing about Kate Middleton and her style for the better part of a decade, I'm excited to begin using her new title: The Princess of Wales. As you already know, the moniker was last used by her beloved late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, so it certainly comes with large shoes to fill but I'm quite certain that she will rise to the occasion.

Fittingly, one of her first events as Princess of Wales was a visit to Swansea, Wales, on September 27. Middleton wore LK Bennett's Spencer Red Recycled Wool Blend Snaffle-Detail Coat ($1080) with full-length, wide-leg, slouchy trousers—a persistent trend this year that I personally guarantee will last well into 2023. Scroll down to see her new outfit and shop for similar pieces.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
