The Duchess of Cambridge has established herself as quite the fashion icon and now her style status has reached new royal heights. Italian designer MaxMara is re-releasing one of their best-selling coats and naming it ‘Kate’ in homage to the royal mum-to-be.

Italian designer label MaxMara has paid tribute to Kate Middleton by re-issuing their iconic beige coat under a brand new name, 'The Kate.'

The knee-length cashmere coat in a biscuit-beige hue features a charming funnel neck and cinching bow-belt design.

Back in November of last year the Duchess wore the MaxMara design on an official visit to Cambridge with Prince William.

She teamed her structured coat with a printed midi-dress, brown tights and snuff-coloured ankle boots whilst on a royal tour of the English county.

In April last year there were rumours bubbling that Kate is keen to set-up her very own affordable clothing line.

St James’s Palace confirmed the Duchess of Cambridge has trademarked her name so it can be used on “clothing, footwear and headgear” in the future although it’s yet to be confirmed if a royal range will be released.

Although 'The Kate' coat has no affiliation with the royals we’re hoping this is the first style stepping-stone in getting our wardrobes ready for a horde of royal-inspired attire. Kate, if you're reading, we're ready for that fashion line!

To get a hold 'The Kate' coat by MaxMara, head to House of Fraser where you can pick it up for a cool £875.00 but you had better be quick. If her style history’s anything to go by then this coat is heading for a sell-out.

Do you think it was an inspired idea for Max Mara to name a coat after The Duchess? Tweet us your thoughts @Sofeminine
