Kate Middleton poked her head out of it’s hidey-hole for two days of sports watching and game playing. Kate, along with Prince William and Prince Harry, ventured to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games on July 28 and 29. On July 28, the Royal Holy Trinity watched a bunch of different sporting events. On July 29, the RHT toured the athlete’s village and met with some UNICEF kids and played games; Kate also attended a SportsAid reception/meeting/thing. Kate mentioned George to champion swimmer James Hickman, he said Kate said George “loves the water and he grabs things to splash with.” George is (probably) a little terror, so it’s not surprising he’s a menace during swim time. If he channeled that energy into something productive he could be a champion swimmer. Getting George into sports early might help with all that energy.

I want to talk about Kate’s wardrobe. The designers she wore are not that important because she’s worn everything previously, but I want to point out how dumb Kate is when planning her outfits. For the day she just sat around watching sporting events, she wore pants, but the day she actually met people and played with kids, she wore a dress. How on earth does that make sense when planning what to wear? I would have worn the dress on the day I was just sitting around, and worn pants when I knew I would be more active. Her choices just don’t make sense to me.
Oh, while Kate was playing games with the UNICEF kids, she played some game with tins which involved jumping over the tins. She did this in a dress and those enormous wedge heels. Enjoy the gif.
There’s not much to talk about, so let’s just do some pictures.
Day 1, Kate wore her skinny jeans and a navy blazer, with a sleeveless button down underneath (and those horrible Stuart Weitzman wedges). There was PDA, if you want to call it that, from Will and Kate when they touched each others knees and held hands for a bit.
Day 2, Kate wore a blue Stella McCartney dress she’s worn a few times now, and another navy blazer, and those wedges again. She wore her Kiki McDonough citrine earrings and Asprey charms (she wore the same jewelry combo for Day 1 also). Kate visited a SportsAid reception/meeting (I always wonder what she talks about in those meetings; does she actually have anything to bring to the table?) and toured the athlete’s village.
