Kate Middleton continues to look smart and chic during Day 3 and 4 of the Royal Tour of Canada. If the first two days meant no more than five outfits for Kate, this time she continued her fashion show with other two symbolic and inspired dresses.
The Duchess of Cambridge began Day 3 with a ceremonial tree planting at Rideau Hall, where she wore a grey Kensington dress by Catherine Walker. It seems like she is making a statement through her choice, as Walker was one of Princess Diana’s favorites, and yesterday would have been the Princess’ 50 birthday.
The grey piece was a knee-length dress with short sleves, a dramatic V-shape back and a triangular collar. She wore Tabitha Simmons shoes and accessorized with a grey Somerton Clutch from Hobbs. Although the outfit was not a very inspired one for a tree planting, Kate managed quite elegantly.
Other activities for the royal couple included a visit at a children’s hospital, the Canadian War Museum and finally, a cooking class at the Quebec Tourism and Hotel Institut in Montreal, where Kate proved that she is also a talented cook.
During the 4th day of the royal tour, a Jacquard blue lace dress by Erdem was the choice for the Duchess, this being the second time since Thursday that Kate goes for the Canadian-born designer. The knee-length dress features floral lace applique on the sleeves and shoulders and accentuates the Duchess’ incredibly thin silhouette. The LK Bennett beige shoes from Thursday completed her royal blue outfit.
On their arrival in Quebec, the royal couple joined a Canadian warship and were included in a church service on the board of HMCS Montreal. Later, they faced protesters quite relaxed and headed for a visit to a homeless center.
