The couple split up and undertook their first solo visits of the 2014 royal tour. Kate went to Rainbow Place, a children’s hospice and William to Pacific Aerospace where he unveiled a Mark III P-750 aircraft.

Later the couple reunited to each lay a single red rose at a war memorial in Cambridge. Upon their arrival, they were greeted by a crowd of 15,000. Some people had camped out overnight to get a good view of the royal visitors.

Next, it was off to New Zealand’s brand new velodrome where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge officially opened the facility (known as Avantidrome). They also met some of New Zealand’s Olympic medalists, watched races and saw a BMX exhibit.


Kate wore a demure, barely-above the knee emerald green Allie wool-crepe coat by Erdem, The coat features a tab-detailed waist, zipped front, zipped cuffs, and front pockets (originally $3,120 but reduced to  $1,560 and currently sold out). Her Allie Wool-Crepe coat is from Erdem’s pre-autumn/winter 2013 collection.

Peeking from beneath the Duchess’ dress was a ‘Budding Heart’ silk tea dress by Suzannah (£475).

Additional details from the Suzannah website:
‘Inspired by a 30s-find in the Porte de Clignancourt vintage market in Paris.
The beautiful budding heart print has a beautiful retro vibe. Our expert printers in Como, Italy, translated this wonderful print onto beautiful Italian silk crepe de chine exclusively for Suzannah.
The smocking detailing at the shoulder and under the bust add a wonderful vintage charm, with the bias line of the skirt skimming to below the knee. Skirt part is lined in 100% silk habotai.
The silhouette lifts the bust and flatters the body.
Tailor Made in England
100% Silk
Dry Clean Only’


Completing her look, Kate wore a pair of black, suede Episode ‘Angel’ heels, a matching black suede Mulberry ‘Bayswater’ clutch, her emerald and diamond earrings (still UFO) and her Cartier Ballon Bleu wrist watch.
