Duchess of Cambridge – Kate in Canada

The Duchess of Cambridge is on her first official tour and Canada is the lucky first country to see her in action – for a whole nine days. Many people will be watching every one of the forty or so outfits she will be wearing while there.

What a fabulous lace dress in the second photo! I went searching on Trademe for a navy lace dress and found a great one so don’t fight over it. It is size 10 and you will find it here.

I thought I’d check what the Duchess of Cambridge has been wearing since her wedding and I am impressed at the simple elegance of her wardrobe.

Kate Middleton - Royal Wedding

What a spectacular dress. Not way out there or anything – just dignified and elegant and oh so pretty! We know she would have had a lot of guidelines to follow when choosing the design of her dress but she still managed to keep her style intact. This was definitely a throwback to Grace Kelly’s wedding dress and I loved that one too.

What a poised young lady! Kate would have been under strict instructions not to express any emotion during the ceremony and though the lips quivered during the vows, she never lost her composure. But it was worth the wait when she finally relaxed as she and William got into the coach and the smiles came out.

The world will watch them closely and I hope the royal family are kinder to her than they were to Diana.
