The Duchess of Cambridge, in her new role as Patron of Wimbledon kick-started The Championships on Monday. She was easy to spot on the grounds of the The All England Club in a white and black polka dot dress by Dolce & Gabbana. She also debuted a pair of black ankle strap block heel sandals by the chain store, Office.
Kensington Palace released further details for The Duke and Duchess's official visit to Poland and Germany between the 17th and 21st of July. The Palace also made a surprise announcement that William and Kate will take their children on the tour! It's likely George and Charlotte will just be seen on arrival and departure in each country. You can read the full itinerary at royal.uk.
NEXT WEEK'S ENGAGEMENT(S)

The Duchess, Patron of NHM London, will open the new Hintze Hall featuring the new star display – a diving blue whale skeleton.

MIX & MATCH
Kate's outfits are impeccable but can sometimes need a little tweaking for us "normal folk" to adapt for daily wear. In this occasional segment, I show how you can create everyday repliKate outfits by mixing and matching key pieces with your wardrobe essentials!
Kate's polka dot dress by D&G was a big hit with repliKaters this week. Hobbs London offers a lovely alternative which I think would be perfect for the office. Here's how I would style it for a 9-to-5 look.
There are so many ways to incorporate polka dots into your closet. If you find the all-over polka dot print a little busy and loud on a dress, perhaps confine it to a scarf, bag or shoes instead!
The reissued Petit Bateau top Kate wore for the Vogue feature is now 45% off at The Outnet.
Kate's popular Self-Portrait lace maxi dress is still available and on sale (in limited sizes) at Intermix.
LK Bennett (USA) has an extra 30% off Sale items with code CELEBRATE. Below is a small sample of some of the styles on sale. SHOP >
From what I gather, the Kate Spade Poms Tassel earrings in Kate's red colorway have sold out almost everywhere, but you can still find them at US-based retailer SPRING. This may be your last chance to grab a pair! SHOP >
Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers.
When I saw Kate back in Dolce & Gabbana, it motivated me to take a look at the current offerings from the Italian luxury brand. I came across these Duchess-worthy styles:
