Kate wears Burberry for Belfast trip

Kate Middleton chose a coat by British luxury brand Burberry for her engagement today.
The classic trench coat had the standard double row of buttons and buckled belt but featured a flared hemline.
A spokeswoman for Burberry confirmed that the coat was one of its own and said the brand was "very pleased" Miss Middleton had chosen it, but gave no further details about the style.
Miss Middleton swapped her usual boots for black heels and accessorised with a black clutch, which she held under her arm as she greeted well-wishers.
Her look, with her hair worn down as usual, was very similar to her two previous public engagements - a warm coat teamed with black tights and accessories.
Clarence House said it had no details about the outfit.
The royal bride-to-be appears to be favouring British designers for her public engagements.
She wore a tailored Shetland herringbone coat by Katherine Hooker London for her first public engagement - an RNLI lifeboat-naming ceremony in Anglesey - teamed with a beret by Wiltshire-based Vivien Sheriff Millinery.
It is not known if she selected today's coat especially for the occasion or if it was already part of her wardrobe.
She had previously been photographed wearing her Katherine Hooker coat at the 2006 Cheltenham Gold Cup.
