Kate's wrapped up against the London chill in a burgundy wool skirt suit by by Paule Ka. The jacket is double-breasted jacket and the skirt is ribbed. It is shorter than we're used to seeing from the Duchess. Beneath the jacket, peeked a black lace top.

She accessorized with thick black tights, her black suede Episode 'Angel’ heels and a new pair of earrings (not ID'ed yet).
This is the first time we've seen Kate wear Paule Ka to an official engagement. Paule Ka is a French brand founded by stylist Serge Cajfinger in 1988 and is famous for skirt suits and sharp shapes inspired by Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn. www.pauleka.com/
Thanks to followers on WKW, I can share some additional information on Kate's outfit. It seems the skirt and jacket were from a past season - possibly last year. They also came in an assortment of colors.
The jacket was originally available for about $800 (on sale for about $324).
The skirt was originally available for about $278
