  • Kate Middleton just stepped out in the perfect green coat while visiting Wales on St David’s Day – and hinting about her house move with Prince William.

    The Duchess accessorised very simply with a pair of delicate gold hoops, which are by independent Welsh jewellery Hayley Jones, whose brand is called Spells of Love.

    It’s a bit of a tradition for Kate to support local designers on official outings, so it’s telling that she wore these hoops on St David’s Day, while in Wales.

    And it turns out it isn’t the first time she has worn the designer either. Hayley told us, ‘I reached out to her stylist a while ago not expecting any response. Every item the Duchess has worn has sold out instantly, it has been so amazing to reach so many customers from countries I would have never expected would have heard of my small brand. I am incredibly grateful and honoured.’
