According to the royal fan account Europe royal, the designer said that the blue piece was made of wool and cashmere⁣. And other fans noted it is not the first time the Duchess wore the number. 

The blue costume is called a ‘Saudi Daqlah’ and is traditionally worn over a piece called a ‘thobe⁣,’ the white ankle-length robes sheiks wear in the Middle East.

It complimented her blonde locks perfectly and provided her evening outfit with a perfect blend of glamour, elegance and simplicity.
