A lot has happened on the Kate-front since the last Wrap-Up on 8th April. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have focused much of their efforts on their Head's Together initiative, with the campaign culminating at the London Marathon last Sunday. Here's a recap of Kate's engagements since the last Wrap-Up.
During this time, Kate made a significant style breakthrough. For her surprise visit to the BBC1 Radio studios, Kate ditched her signature skinny jeans for a classic pair of bootcut trousers. Many of us had been hoping to see Kate professionalize her casual wear, and our prayers were finally answered! This was a fashion breakthrough for the Duchess, marking the first time she had worn tailored trousers!
Following the intense build-up to the marathon, Kate took a break this week to recharge her batteries. Next week she has one engagement scheduled. On 3rd May the Duchess will visit Farms for City Children.
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
