Back to Black: The Duchess Kate Story

William and Kate at GREAT Reception at NeueHouse

Duchess Kate was back in black for the GREAT Reception at NeueHouse with Prince William. She wore another Seraphine Maternity dress, the Vanessa. I mean, she looks nice, and it’s much better than her black lace dresses, but damn I am just so sick of Kate wearing black. Oh, and let’s not forget the $80,000 elephant in the room. Kate brought back her Cartier Trinity necklace she previously wore in 2012.

Prince William and Duchess Kate meet Hillary Clinton, Beyonce, and Jay Z

Kate wears white, and no jewelry, for final night in OZ

William and Kate attended a reception at Government House—named Yarralumla—in Canberra, hosted by the Governor General of Australia, Sir Peter Cosgrove, to end Day 18—their last night in OZ.  There were about 100 guests from the arts, business, charity, conservation, and sporting industries, as well as surviving recipients of the Victoria Cross.  The Governor General gave a speech in which he paralleled the Cambridges to the former York’s trip of 1927—the then Duke and Duchess of York, who later became King George VI and Queen Elizabeth—because they had a young child at the time and “accounts of their visit note the deafening cheers of the crowds, the fervent and spontaneous greetings of those they met and the Duchess won hearts from the start – all words that could describe the last couple of weeks.”
