Kate Middleton Wears Show-Stopping McQueen Gown, Pretty Jenny Packham
The Diamond Jubilee Tour soldiers on! Today, Prince William and Duchess Catherine spent their morning visiting the Kranji War Memorial in Singapore, after which they flew to Kuala Lumpur to drop by Hospis Malaysia and brighten the days of some of their youngest patients. So dutiful, these two.
And, since public nudity is kind of a touchy subject amongst the royals as of late, both were very much clothed for their outings. Will wore a very well-tailored navy suit, if we do say so ourselves, and Kate opted for a dove gray shirtdress by one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham. The outfit was tasteful for a day spent at a cemetery — modest and understated, with a pleated skirt that fell to the knee and subtle lace detailing. She paired the frock with — what else? — her beige L.K. Bennett pumps. It didn’t make a major statement like the Prabal Gurung number did she wore earlier this week, but it was right on the mark for the occasion.
What did make a major statement, however, was the thoroughly regal Alexander McQueen gown she wore to a reception at the Istana Palace tonight, where she gave her first overseas speech. While no professional photos of the dress have been released yet, Daily Mail correspondent Rebecca English posted some snapshots on her Twitter page to tide us over in the meantime.
