Kate Middleton - Duchess given designer coat tribute

MaxMara have named a coat after the Duchess of Cambridge.

The Italian haute couture brand have paid tribute to Duchess Catherine by naming one of their outerwear pieces The Kate.

The Duchess - who is just weeks away from giving birth to her first child with Prince William, wore the beige cashmere coat during a visit to Cambridge - southern England, last November and as a result, it sold out instantly.

Now, as a mark of thanks, the label has reissued the coat and renamed it after her.

The knee-length piece has a high neck and a bow-fronted belt and is available from the Italian label's diffusion line, MaxMara Studio.

Though the coat is not officially affiliated with the Royal Family, last year the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry applied to the Intellectual Property Office to trademark the Duchess' royal title - so that one of her official charities could use her name on a range of goods including ''clothing, footwear and headgear''.

A spokesman for St James' Palace said in March: ''We have been registering our new name and logo in different territories around the world.

''As part of that process, we have to choose any categories under which we might conceivably operate in the future. This also protects the foundation against other people using its name illegally.

''We included clothing in case we choose, for example, to make T-shirts in years to come, for marathon runners, etc.''

The Kate coat costs £875 and is available to buy from House of Fraser in the UK.
