This evening, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG). This followed a busy a day of engagements at Hampton Court and her patronage, the Anna Frued Centre.
Kate appears on the cover of British Vogue's centenary issue, and as patron of the NPG she also agreed for two images from the shoot to be installed within the exhibition. Photographed by Josh Olins in the Norfolk countryside, Kate features in a 10-page shoot within the June 2016 issue, the first magazine shoot that she has ever consented to.
This evening marked the first time the Duchess had seen the portraits.
The exhibition features more than 280 prints commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916. It tells the story of one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world.
Kate continued the Downunder Tour recycling theme from earlier today. She re-wore her powder pink Alexander McQueen pleated peplum dress which she premiered during the Australian leg of the royal tour in 2014.
The Duchess added a touch of glamour to the ensemble with her dazzling Monica Vinader 'Riva' Diamond Cluster bib necklace and matching earrings.
She wore the same LK Bennett accessories from earlier today which consisted of the 'Fern' trench leather pumps and matching 'Nina' frame clutch bag.
She finished the look with her Cartier Ballon Bleu Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
