After a quick day off, Kate Middleton and Prince William are back on their jam-packed royal tour of Australia—which means fresh looks to discuss for the Duchess. (I’m going to be sad on Friday when they jet back to England. I hope she has some official outings already planned at home, just to wean me off this K-Mid dependence. But back to the update…)
First stop: the Australian outback. Kate opted for a drape-y dove gray Roksanda Ilincic dress, which is sort of a repeat look. She owns the same style dress but in a lighter lilac hue, which she wore twice already. And her favorite L.K. Bennett patent pumps get another moment in the limelight.
The Cambridges then headed to an indigenous training academy, where Kate received a shell bracelet and Prince William played with a spear.
Next stop: Uluru a.k.a. Ayers Rock, where Prince Charles and Princess Diana also posed for an iconic photo in 1983. Kate changed into her second high-street dress of the tour, a repeat fit-and-flare by Hobbs, and a pair of fabric and rattan wedges.
“It’s OK… I brought other shoes for the trip.
The latter might not have been the best idea. After that trek through the outback, Kate’s shoes ended up covered in red dirt. Well, lucky she packed a lot.
