Prince Will and Princess Cathy Visit Copper Box Arena

Posted on October 14, 2022

The Prince and Princess of Wales came out yesterday to Copperbox Arena in London to mark and celebrate the 10th anniversary of CoachCore, the sports coaching initiative they co-founded in 2012. We did not, however, get Sporty Cathy for the occasion, which is a bit of a shame, because the Princess seems to be at her most relaxed in a pair of trainers, knocking a ball around. Instead, we got Dressy-Casual Cathy, wearing her signature color and dressing in a house she rarely favors.



The British royals don’t really do the Chanel thing all that much, even though the conservatively tweedy classic Chanel looks are right in line with the royal aesthetic. We think part of that comes down to just how identifiable an aesthetic the brand has. Even non-fashion people can spot a Chanel. Of course the fact that it’s an iconic French brand also doesn’t help its chances among the Windsors, but we think when you’re a princess and you put on Chanel, you then become the Princess in Chanel, rather than the Princess of Wales. It’s a matter of competing brands. Supposedly, Diana didn’t like wearing the brand because the double C logo reminded her of Charles and Camilla, although that story always sounded just a little too precious to us. Anyway, Kate’s going her own way on this one, not just choosing a Chanel jacket, but a vintage one to boot. It looks pretty great on her, although we think the pants come off too lightweight with it.
