    Kate is wearing L.K.Bennett shoes and bag there on the website,think the dress is Reiss too

    • Thanks, I am waiting for both L.K. Bennett and Reiss to confirm the dress & the shoes.

      I’d love to know where her headpiece (hat? fascinator?) is from too!

  2. Shazbat says:

    She looks great!

  3. At last she put her hair up. It’s not royal AT ALL to wear long hair. She is starting to learn that she is no longer a chav.

    • She’s not a chav! And loads of the royals wear their hair down…. Princesses Eugenie & Beatrice for example both had their hair down. But yes, she looked nice with it up.

    Thats quite alright. It’s 100% correct as I work at Whiteley’s. She bought the hat in Fenwick’s of Bond Street I believe. Kate also wore one of our hats at a friends wedding in February, a black velour number with a quill, very conservative and chic also.
