As an avid Kate Middleton fan, I would say I am pretty well-versed in what (I think) the Duchess considers to be wardrobe staples.
And on the topic of Kate Middleton's go-tos, we, of course, have to mention her love of Reiss.
Throughout her many years in the spotlight, the Duchess has worn the British fashion brand on several occasions, most recently during a visit to the London headquarters of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) on Thursday, April 21.
Alongside her husband, Prince William, the 40-year-old visited the DEC to learn more about their work with people affected by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
During their visit, the Duke and Duchess wore pins showcasing the blue and yellow of the Ukrainian flag while they spoke via video link with aid workers on the ground of the war-torn country.
To mark the visit, Kate wore a pair of black cigarette pants, Gianvito Rossi leather pumps (shop here), an off-white shirt, and her Reiss Larsson Double-Breasted Twill Blazer in neutral (shop here in Canada, here in the U.S.).
Thursday's meeting is the second time the mother-of-three has been photographed in the $550 blazer. She was previously spotted wearing the double-breasted jacket during an event in Brize Norton, England, in September 2021.
Surprisingly, Kate's wool-blend blazer is still in stock, but just barely. With sizes of the luxe blazer flying off the (virtual) shelves, we rounded up 12 look-a-like dupes that you can shop for less.

GASPÉ, Que. — Fisheries and Oceans Canada says its search mission has failed to locate an endangered North Atlantic right whale that was spotted last week entangled in some type of gear east of Gaspé, Que. The 14-year-old female known as Sundog was last seen on May 19. The department says its aircraft will resume regular right whale surveillance activities but will continue to watch for the entangled whale. It says marine mammal rescue agencies will mobilize if the whale is spotted. There are ab
A man shot dead by police after reports of a person with a rifle forced several schools into lockdown in Toronto Thursday in fact had a pellet gun, Ontario's police watchdog says. The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) also says the man was 27. The watchdog agency said Friday that police were called to the scene just before 1 p.m. and located the man about 20 minutes later. He was pronounced dead at about 1:40 p.m. Toronto Police Chief James Ramer said officers were called to the Port Union area
Planning to take the TTC this weekend? Plan ahead. The Toronto Transit Commission says some of its subway and bus routes will be closed or have reduced service because of construction and weekend events. On Saturday and Sunday, there will be no subway service on a segment of Line 1 between Finch and St. Clair stations due to construction on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. The stations will have shuttle buses available for passengers and will stop at each station along the route. While that section o
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee was quick to react to this week’s carnage at a Texas elementary school, sending a tweet listing the gun control measures the Democratic-controlled state has taken. He finished with: “Your turn Congress.” But gun control measures are likely going nowhere in Congress, and they also have become increasingly scarce in most states. Aside from several Democratic-controlled states, the majority have taken no action on gun control in recent years or have
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Many voters in heavily Democratic Los Angeles are seething over rising crime and homelessness and that could prompt the city to take a turn to the political right for the first time in decades. One of the leading candidates for mayor is Rick Caruso, a pro-business billionaire Republican-turned-Democrat who sits on the board of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and is promising to expand spending on police, not defund them. At another time, the high-end mall and resort
Three more people have been charged in connection with the 2020 shooting death of Alex Tobin, Ontario Provincial Police say. Tobin, 18, was shot in a King Street East apartment east of Toronto in Omemee, Ont. in February 2020. Suspects were seen leaving the apartment building on foot, police say, before getting in a car and driving off on Highway 7. Last month, OPP released suspect descriptions, video and photos to the public. Police have since charged a 21-year-old Oshawa man with accessory aft
There were moments of tears, prayers and song as clients, volunteers and staff said goodbye to the Victoria Avenue location of the Downtown Mission Friday. "It's hard to say goodbye, but it also gives us the opportunity to look forward to what's next," said executive director Rukshini Ponniah-Goulin during a decommissioning ceremony. "It's time to look back and see what we've done in this place we've called home." The mission has been at 664 Victoria Ave. for 20 years after moving from the origi
VANCOUVER — Environment Canada warns prolonged rains will drench parts of northern B.C. over the weekend, raising the potential for localized flooding. A rainfall warning has been issued for the North and South Peace River regions as the weather office says rainfall of up to 50 millimetres is expected between Friday and late Saturday. Forecasters say total rainfall could reach 60 to 80 mm near Hudson's Hope and Chetwynd before downpours ease to showers as the storm moves on. The warning says hea
A Dene filmmaker says he was turned away from the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival because he was wearing moccasins. Kelvin Redvers, who is from the Northwest Territories and works in B.C., says he hopes the incident is a learning moment for event organizers and it helps expand the festival's idea of what counts as formal wear. Redvers travelled to France as part of a delegation of six Indigenous filmmakers with support from Telefilm, the Indigenous Screen Office, and Capilano University's
The Ontario Liberals have lost another candidate with one week to go until voting day. Leader Steven Del Duca says Audrey Festeryga has withdrawn her candidacy in Chatham-Kent-Leamington and will no longer appear on the ballot for the Liberals. The development means there are now three ridings in which the Liberals aren't running a candidate for the June 2 provincial election. Festeryga had stepped in after the party dropped a previous candidate in the riding who had used a homophobic slur on so

OTTAWA (Reuters) -Canada's Supreme Court on Friday upheld a decision by a lower court to speed up the parole eligibility for the man convicted of gunning down six people in a mosque in 2017 and deemed a 2011 law that allowed lengthy parole sentencing as unconstitutional. Canada's top court was adjudicating on the case challenging a 2020 decision by a Quebec court to lower Alexandre Bissonnette's parole eligibility to 25 years from the original sentence that required him to wait much longer for the possibility of parole. The Supreme Court said that such a punishment removes a realistic possibility of parole and called it "incompatible with human dignity."
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — When Brazil great Ronaldo bought Spanish club Valladolid almost five years ago, the idea was to turn the modest side into a solid team in a glamorous top tier including his former clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona. The intention wasn't for Valladolid to play soccer in the second division — with less famous opponents like Ponferradina and Amorebieta — as happened after the northern Spain side was relegated at the end of the 2020-2021 campaign. On Sunday Valladolid can seal i
