William and Kate visited Tuvalu on September 18th 2012, as part of the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Royal Tour. Tuvalu is the world’s fourth-smallest nation and is made up of 9 tiny islands.
I covered the couple’s arrival on this page. Here’s a photo of the couple at the start of their visit.
Later in the day, William and Kate attended a dinner at a town hall and took part in a traditional ‘dance-off’ with locals.
Kate wore a maxi dress from Alice by Temperley, Temperley London’s diffusion label.
It’s the designer’s ‘Beatrice’ dress. The cream dress features contrasting red and gold cross-stitch detail in various places, including the sleeves, collar, front and above the hemline.
Net-A-Porter sold the dress for £595 (of course, it’s long sold out now). They described the piece as follows:
Cream crepe. Red and beige embroidered panels, sheer sleeves, button-fastening keyhole, button-fastening placket, partially lined. Concealed hook and zip fastening at back. 100% viscose; lining: 100% polyester. Dry clean Colour: natural
Kate paired the maxi dress with her Stuart Weitzman Minx wedges and her gold-coloured Catherine Zoraida Double Leaf earrings.
