Can I just say, no royal should ever try DJ-ing. It was cringe-worthy when Charles did it and it’s cringe-worthy when Will and Kate do it. Please, royals, just stop. Granted, neither one really wanted to try it; they both kept insisting the other go first—they must have known how cringe-worthy they would look. For Day 17, Will and Kate went to Adelaide, South Australia. More specifically, they went to Elizabeth, a small suburb of Adelaide, named after the Queen (obviously). The Cambridges visited a music studio/youth center, Northern Sound System, and were shown how to… I don’t even know what it’s called, scratch the records? That’s what they did, held down the records and moved them around to make a scratching noise. Outside, they watched a skateboarding display and were presented with a skateboard for George. Will then spray-painted a wall (the artwork had already been started Will just dabbed in a little bit). The Cambridges then unveiled a plaque for a planned new business development named Prince George Plaza. Then they went to a reception. There was a walkabout thrown in there somewhere.
Kate was Single White Female-ing the Queen again. In 1963, the Queen wore light pink on her visit to Adelaide, and Kate wore light pink on her visit, too! Kate wore another Alexander McQueen outfit for the trip to Elizabeth, a suburb of Adelaide. She wore a light pink long sleeved, deep v-necked shirt and a matching light pink full skirt. She wore her nude LK Bennett shoes again, and carried an LK Bennett clutch. For jewelry she wore the Annoushka pearl drops, Asprey charms, and Cartier watch. She wore her hair back in a half-up style. Other than the clothes change, it’s the exact same look we’ve seen countless times on this tour.
I honestly wouldn’t hate this look if the v-neck wasn’t so low. That neckline is far too low for her when on an official appearance. At one point she bent down to receive flowers from a little girl and it looks like that little girl got an eyeful. In fact, I know that little girl got an eyeful because a photographer got an eyeful. Not a good look for a Duchess.
By the way, so much for the whole “Queen’s Jewels” thing. Kate wore the silver fern brooch upon arrival to NZ and to the state reception, but other than that she hasn’t worn any of the Queen’s jewelry, and has barely changed up her own jewelry. How boring is that? I wanted nice jewelry, instead we’ve gotten boring-ness. I guess that about sums up this entire tour, doesn’t it?
