This past fortnight included some sartorial surprises from the Duchess. Here's a recap of Kate's engagements since the last Wrap-Up on June 10.
It was refreshing to see Kate professionalize her smart-casual style with trousers for the Land Rover BAR roadshow event. I loved this tailored look on Kate and I hope we see more of it and less of the skinny jeans in the future! The next day there was another surprise when the Duchess opted for a bright pink Alexander McQueen dress for Trooping the Colour. The vibrant hue was a departure from the subdued pastel tones she had worn in the past for this annual event. This week it was back to predictable Kate when she stepped out in a white lace dress by Alexander McQueen at Royal Ascot. The outfit was a mirror of the one she wore for last year's race.
