The royal couple went back inside to put princess in her car seat. They re-emerged holding hands as the Duke carried his sleepy daughter in her car seat.

The Duchess looked perfectly put together and disguised what was left of her baby bump in bespoke silk shift dress with buttercup print by designer Jenny Packham. The knee-length frock features a loose fitting shift silhouette and 3/4 length sleeves. The lemon and white floral print is a motif from Packham’s SS15 collection.

You may recall that she wore a blue polka dot frock by the same designer when she left the hospital with Prince George almost two years ago.

Completing her look, Kate paired her outfit with her nude Jimmy Choo Gilbert heels (£360), seven-denier nude non-slip tights from John Lewis’s Barely There range (£5) and her gold Annoushka diamond and pearl drop earrings (£1,060).

Odds, Ends and Some New Photos

‘Who’ Magazine

Australian Magazine ‘Who’ has published some new pictures of Kate. It seems that she got her hair done at the Rossano Ferretti salon in Mayfair on June 19th. This is unusual as she normally visits Richard Ward in Chelsea.

The Ferretti salon is located in a chic townhouse and is part of a chain, including salons in Paris, New York, Miami, Madrid, Rome and Venice. The salon is familiar to the Middleton family, as her mother Carole and sister Pippa have both had their hair styled there.

Ferretti, who opened his London salon earlier last year, has a number of other high-profile celebrity clients, including Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek. He has also worked on catwalk shows for both Armani and Dior.

In other news…The Daily Mail published snaps of the royal couple getting out of a helicopter on June 25. Kate’s bump looks smaller than in recent shots so I am uncertain as to when it was actually taken.

William, Kate and pet dog Lupo were the recipients of a free ride from Simon Oliphant-Hope,a friend of the couple and managing director of Shoreham-based Eastern Atlantic Helicopters. He was flying past their home in North Wales, picked them up, and then dropped them off at an aerodrome on the outskirts of London.

The Duchess was dressed casually in jeans, a fitted black top with her baby bump clear to see, a tweed Zara military jacket, taupe suede plimsolls by Mint Velvet, and her grey Tod’s D-style bag.

Kate’s sweater has been ID’d (thanks to a follower on WKW). It is the ‘Crew Neck Cashmere Cardigan’ by John Lewis. It is from 2009 and no longer available.

Kate Volunteers with the Scouts

Last Wednesday, the Duchess was snapped as she walked through the woods with the Scotland Porthaethwy Menai Bridge branch on a camping excursion near her Anglesey, North Wales home.

Kate even brought her cocker spaniel pup along.

She wore a brown vest over her Paige Denim Skyline Ankle Peg jeans ($189) and Le Chameau Vierzonord Wellington Boots (£145).

Kate & Pippa Take a Stroll

Yesterday, the historically close Middleton sisters got to spend some quality time together. They were photographed walking along the beach on Llanddwyn Island of Newborough in North Wales. The sisters looked happy and relaxed as they enjoyed their stroll.

Kate wore a light pink-cowl neck sweater that she wore back on April 28th when she arrived at Clarence House in London. It has yet to be ID’ed.

Additionally Kate wore her signature skinny blue jeans, held a kahki jacket over her right arm and adorned her feet with wellington boots. She appeared fresh-faced and her hair hung loosely around her shoulders.

My guess on the boots right now is that they are Le Chameau Vierzonord Wellington Boots (£145). The description from The Le Chameau website is as follows:

•Adjustable calf for closer fitting.
•Lined throughout with 2mm Neoprene.
•Le Chameau’s famous Dual-Density sole.
•LADIES narrower & shaped fitting.
Update 8/21/2011
Kate’s sweater has been ID’ed. It is the John Lewis Cashmere Cowl Neck Tunic in primrose. It’s currently on sale for £49.50 (marked down from £99).

I leave you with one last picture…it includes Pippa’s current flame walking behind her – Alex Loudon.
Update 8/22/2011
I have received confirmation, via Facebook, that Kate did infact wear their boots in the above pictures.
Absolutely @Nicole I confirm that Kate Middleton, The duchess of Cambridge wore Le Chameau Boots and more precisely a pair of Vierzon boots ;-)”
Dedicated follower ‘TH’ has alerted me to the fact that Kate could be carrying a Barbour Jacket. This is definitely a good possibility!
“I think the jacket she is carrying could be the Barbour Ladies Linhope Jacket – she was seen wearing this August Bank Holiday Weekend 2009 in Scotland?”
