Duchess Kate bores in black DVF for Royal Variety Performance

Here I was hoping to write something nice – she brought back one of my favorite hats (the Jane Taylor grey hat she wore to Easter service), and she wore a low ponytail which was elegant – and then she had to go and have her skirt fly up again.
