Kate and William hold hands to walk to church

Kate attended church, twice, with the royal family this year.  She wore a cream/pink coat with a pretty tartan scarf for the early service, and she wore the McQueen tartan coat dress for the later service.  I love the McQueen coat, it is beautiful.  I loved it the first time she wore it and I […]
