Kate Middleton face mask: Camilla Duchess of Cornwall influenced Kate’s fashion choice

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, donned a striking pink floral face mask as she stepped out for an engagement at Baby Basics’s in Sheffield on Tuesday afternoon. The Duchess’s latest appearance prompted a flurry of online sales in the mask, which was made by London children’s brand Amaia.

However, what some fans may not have realised is the way in which Kate’s micro-floral print cotton mask was a clear nod to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 73.

The ‘Pepper’ print material used on Kate’s mask is from iconic London department store Liberty – as was the peacock feather printed silk used to make the mask Camilla wore when she visited the National Portrait Gallery last month.

Camilla’s bespoke mask was made by designer Fiona Clare but clearly seems to have made an impression on Kate.

The bird has many sacred connotations and its name derives from the Old English.

In art, a peacock feather in painting was used as a symbol of pride and vanity.

Kate’s pretty pink face mask packed less of a royal message but perfectly complemented her outfit.

She wore a white silk shirtdress from Suzannah —last seen during her 2019 trip to Wimbledon— and Tabitha Simmons Dela heels.

During yesterday’s engagement, Kate helped unpack donations with volunteers and spoke to parents who had been struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.
