As part of the ongoing Heads Together campaign, Prince William is British GQ magazine's July cover feature. In the article he discusses mental health and the impact that his mother's death has had on him. The spread also includes a black and white photograph of the Cambridge family in a casual setting on the grounds of Kensington Palace. The photo was taken in April by Norman Jean Roy.
Kate wore a crew neck sweater and the rolled edge detail suggests it is her J.Crew Italian cashmere long-sleeve sweater in heather midnight.
Kate accessorized with her Mappin &Webb Empress Pendant necklace and the matching earrings.
We don't have a complete view of Kate's shoes but the sole tread suggests they are her Superga Cotu Trainers.
The Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and several other members of the royal family for a preview tour of the Royal Chelsea Flower Show this afternoon.
Established in 1913, on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has become one of the world’s greatest showcases for horticultural excellence, attracting visitors and exhibitors from across the globe. The royal family get to preview the exhibition the day before it opens to the public.
Here we see Her Majesty visiting one of the greenhouses.
This was Kate's second visit to the annual floral festival. Last year she made a maiden appearance along with Prince William , when she wore a beautiful kelly green coat by Catherine Walker.
Today, Kate embraced the lovely spring weather and opted for a new floral print frock by Rochas - ID by @Japanese_Ginger.
The forest green Dahlia-print silk-charmeuse midi dress is from the designer's Pre-Fall 2016 collection. The piece is cut to a fit-and-flare silhouette that sings of vintage glamour. It had an original price tag of US$2000 before going on sale for US$975 at The Outnet.
This is the first time Kate has worn a piece from the Parisian fashion house. The brand was founded by French couturier Marcel Rochas in 1925 and is now under the creative direction of Alessandro Dell’Acqua. The label's feminine creations bring a fairytale whimsy to a 21st century audience, with beautifully crafted dresses, skirts and softly tailored jackets. Here are some Duchess-worthy picks from the current collection:
The Duchess teamed the dress with her Monica Vinader Green Onyx Siren Wire Earrings.
On her feet she wore her trusty LK Bennett 'Fern' pumps.

Pippa Middleton got married today and big sister Kate was on hand to help arrange her wedding dress before she walked down the aisle of St Mark's church in Englefield to exchange vows with James Matthews.
Pippa looked radiant in a white Giles Deacon guipure lace gown designed with a high neckline, cap sleeves, a corseted bodice and a heart-shaped detail at the back.
Kate had an unofficial role as matron of honor and helped guide the pageboys and bridesmaids into the church at the commencement of the ceremony.
In the bridal party were her two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte who looked adorable in their bespoke Pepe & Co outfits.
The Duchess picked up on the accent colour in the bridesmaid dresses and wore a dusty pink silk dress by her most trusted designer, Alexander McQueen. The fashion house has created so many of Kate's most important looks — including her own wedding dress.
The bespoke piece is a modified version of the designer's Bell Sleeve Dress Wool Crepe Dress (ID by @PerthsFashion). The dress features an inset waist, plunging v-neck and peplum detail. We've seen Kate in this silhouette before - in 2012 she wore a green Alexander McQueen bell-sleeve crepe gown for the Sports Personality of the Year Awards.
She complemented the dress with a Jane Taylor headpiece in a matching hue.
Kate donned a new pair of Kiki McDonough morganite drop earrings. They are from the jeweller's Special Edition collection and retail for £7,500.
Finishing off the monochrome look were her trusty Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Praline Suede Pumps.
It's a universal rule that you don't outshine the bride, and Kate got it just right! Her ensemble was elegant but not so innovative that she'd upstage her sister.
And finally, congratulations to Mr and Mrs Matthews!
Following the 'Party at the Palace' event on Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were back at Buckingham Palace today for the Queen's first garden party of the season.
The garden parties are a staple on the royal calendar with Her Majesty hosting a few each year on the grounds of Buckingham Palace and are a way of recognizing and rewarding public service.
This was the second garden party William and Kate had attended together.
Kate has gone solo on past occasions, and today marked her fifth appearance. For her first attendance in 2012, Kate opted for a repeat and wore her pink Emilia Wickstead 'Alice' pleated dress. In 2013, she was pregnant with Prince George and debuted a yellow Emilia Wickstead coat. In 2014, she brought back the Alexander McQueen champagne lace dress and in 2015 she recycled the cream Alexander McQueen ensemble she wore for Prince George's christening.
Kate chose a Christopher Kane repeat today.
The bespoke ice blue silk coat was first worn for the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012 and again for the Order of the Garter in 2014.
Once again, Kate coordinated the garment with the Lock & Co 'Sweet Delight' woven straw hat.
She complemented the look with her recently acquired KIKI Blue Topaz and Diamond Drop Earrings.
On her feet, Kate wore the Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Praline Suede Pumps.
The most interesting piece of today's outfit was Kate’s clutch. It is a new addition to her closet and the bag features a multicolored brocade pattern on the front flap. Unfortunately we don't yet know the brand or designer. I'll keep you posted if we ever get an ID.
The gardens of Buckingham Palace were transformed into a giant playground on Saturday, for a tea party hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Some 850 young people were invited to join the royal trio for an all-out 'Party at the Palace'.
The special event was held for the children of those who have died in military service to their country.
The fun-filled day included water balloons, face painting, cupcake decorating, magic tricks and the RAF Falcons parachuting onto the palace lawns.
Below we see a playful Kate aiming for William with a water cannon.
The Duchess looked radiant in the Spring sunshine, wearing her cream See by Chloé Lacy Jersey Long Sleeve Dress. The frock is currently available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Many will recall that Kate premiered the French label frock at a children's garden party during her trip to Canada last Fall.
She again accessorized with her cream ACNE STUDIOS 'Orione' waist belt and taupe Monsoon 'Fleur' Suede Espadrille Wedges.
Monsoon has reissued the 'Fleur' wedge pumps this season in linen and navy suede.
The Duchess finished the look with with her Annoushka pearl/Kiki hoop earrings.
Just a reminder that this time next week, we'll see Kate, William and the kids at Pippa's wedding!
