The Royal Couple Wrap Up Their Tour with Two More Events

William & Kate wrapped up their trip to Southern California on Sunday by visiting an inner-city school in downtown Los Angeles’s notorious Skid Row area and attending a job fair for veterans.

The couple were welcomed to the Inner City Arts academy by six elementary-aged children holding a welcome banner.

Their final stop before departing for the U.K. was with the group ServiceNation: Mission Serve, which aims to help veterans find jobs.

Kate wore a navy-and-white crochet top and an ivory ‘Lina Dobby’ pleated skirt (£95 and as of this writing only available in a size 16), both by Whistles.

The following description is from www.johnlewis.com 
‘Featuring on-trend pleats and a light, feminine ivory tone the Whistles Lina skirt offers a high waist and all over dobby spot print.’
Kate accessorized with her Belle and Mimi Suede Pointed Court Shoe, her ivory moc-croc clutch, sapphire and diamond earrings and her diamond cross pendant necklace.

Kate & William departed aboard a British Airway aircraft from LAX this afternoon. They posed for a few pictures and were then ushered inside.
Update 7/11/11

I had been unable to locate the navy-and-white crochet top seen above that the media has been reporting as being Whistles. I contacted Whistles and asked them for confirmation that this was, indeed their top. This is the response that I received back from them:
Whistles The crochet top is definitely not Whistles. The Lina double pleat skirt has sold out online but is still available in our stores’
I will continue to do my research and post when I have an update.

Update 7/22/12

After much thought and research, I have come to the conclusion that Kate’s crochet top is, in fact, Whistles. Below are some close-up pictures of the top taken from Ebay.

  1. Fabulous posts and daily updated on the Princess. Do you happen to know what tights Kate wears? I think they look great.

  2. Thanks so much for reading my blog 🙂 There has never been a formal announcement made to the media about what brand of tights Kate wears so we can only speculate at this point.

    According to an article in 'The Daily Mail' newspaper, a spokesperson for Selfridges (Kate shops here a lot) said that the most popular sheer satin tights are Wolford Naked 8s and Satin Touch 20s and Falke's Shelina tights. A runner up is the Pretty Polly's Naturals range.

    If I find out any additional information, I will be sure to post an update.
