The sixth day of the Cambridges' Canadian royal visit brought the tour's most eagerly anticipated engagement, the children's party at Government House! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were joined by their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte for a morning playdate with military families from Victoria.
Duchess Kate broke all the rules of playdate fashion and wore an winter-white ensemble which contrasted beautifully with her family in blue.
Kate premiered another brand today choosing the SEE BY CHLOÉ Pointelle-knit cotton-blend dress (US$460). The Chloé French fashion house was founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion. The luxury brand launched the SEE line in 2001 to offer moderately priced ready-to-wear pieces, handbags, and accessories to a younger audience.
The ivory dress heralds from See by Chloé's Fall '16 collection which was described as "careful, youthful and poetic". The cotton-blend dress has a pointelle-knit bodice, underpinned with a tonal slip. The flattering fit-and-flare silhouette is finished with a ruffled collar and cuffs.
The collection also includes a pointelle-knit top (US$260), currently available at Nordstrom and Zappos.
Kate teamed the dress with a tonal cream leather belt.
It is the ACNE STUDIOS 'Orione' waist belt (IDed by @PerthsFashion). The US$180 leather belt is finished with a simple burnished gold buckle, and crafted from smooth leather with a tan underside. The belt is also available in black leather.
On her feet were the Monsoon 'Fleur' Taupe Suede Espadrille Wedges.
Kate finished the outfit with her dainty KIKI 'Lauren' Yellow Gold Diamond Pave Leaf Earrings.
The cuteness of the Cambridge tots was off-the-charts, and today we'll most certainly be the highlight of the tour!

There are simply too many adorable photos to share on this blog! I recommend you check out Zimbio's collection of images of today's outing. I'll leave you with one of the sweetest moments from today of our two future kings, but mostly importantly a father and son sharing a loving embrace.
