On day six Kate and William spent time in Yellowknife, NT after arriving there the previous night.

Yellowknife  is the Northwest Territories’ capital city.  It is located on the northern shore of Great Slave Lake.  It is 250 miles south of the Arctic Circle.

Kate is wearing the beige ‘Bullet’ dress by Malene Birger; she has teamed the dress with her nude L.K. Bennett shoes and the mystery clutch bag we saw early in the tour and at Wimbledon.  Read on for more details:

Kate’s dress:

The bullet dress by Malene Birger is made from a silk linen mix fabric with strong shoulders and a contrast waistband.  As we’ve seen from this tour so far, Kate is a fan of ‘cropped’ or 3/4 sleeves, trousers & jackets – and this dress follows suit.

The dress was already sold out on the Selfridges website, but it may still be available in store.

Selfridges describe the dress as: “A contemporary silhouette” and as having a  “striking yet classic style”.

If you’d like to achieve Kate’s look for yourself, try pairing the following Moschino Cheap and Chic dress with a pair of nude platforms.  The strong shoulders and belt around the waist give this dress a similar feel to Kate’s:

    Hey guys here is a cute video showing she has changed into a relaxed outfit. She’s wearing different jeans than the ones in PEI and a green relaxed long sleeved shirt with a cute belt. Will and Kate both wear red Canadian “Rangers” Sweaters and it is so cute how he helps her with her sweater.
