And there she goes again! Kate Middleton is currently on a whirlwind tour of Asia alongside the Duke of Cambridge to celebrate the Royal Diamond Jubilee, and of course the Duchess is doing it in style. We spotted Middleton in Honiara, the capitol of the Solomon Islands, where the Royal couple received beaded necklaces from the Prime Minister–Kate’s custom extra read “Princess Kate SIG 2012,” which she wore over a sunny number by Jaeger. The couple then headed to Burns Creek, to visit the residents of a community strongly impacted by poverty. Middleton debuted her second outfit of the day on Tavanipupu Island, wearing an indigo Mulberry dress with embroidery.

Over the weekend the Duchess kept it casual as she explored the Borneo rainforest on Saturday in a simple hair of khakis and a deep green blouse from Zara. On Sunday, Middleton returned to her usual routine with three eyecatching looks. Middleton kicked off the day departing from Sabah in one of her favourite garments, a black and purple wrap dress, which she wore in 2002 and 2005. She then swapped outfits, showing up in the Solomon Islands looking stunning in a Jonathan Saunders dress and Jane Taylor hat. The Duchess finished off the day in an island inspired printed number for a reception hosted by Governor-General Sir Frank Kabui. The frock by Tav Pacific NZ, which is printed in Rarotonga, is rumoured to have been a gift from the Solomon Islands government.
