Kate Middleton sets another huge fashion trend after Royal carol concert

Kate Middleton has set another huge spike for internet searches flying this week after her appearance at a carol concert on Wednesday evening.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a special appearance at Westminster Abbey in London to hold a carol concert that will be aired on BBC on Christmas Eve, paying tribute to those who have been impacted throughout the pandemic.

Whist Prince William looked dapper in a navy suit with a red tie, Kate stole the show as she paid tribute to the Queen in a stunning red coat dress by Catherine Walker.

The 39-year-old completed the look with a matching pair of £229 LK Bennett red court heels and a recycled Mui Mui bag costing a pricey £640.

After pictures from the event were published, eager shoppers rushed to the internet to search for Kate's festive-inspired outfit.

And as a result, Lovethesales reported a huge 257 per cent increase in searches for 'Bow Tie Dresses', which was followed with an 82 percent increase for 'Red Pumps' and an 80 per cent rise in 'Red Clutch Bags'.

Kate solidified herself as a royal style influencer many years ago and her winning streak is clearly showing no signs of stopping.
