A new portrait

A never-seen-before picture of The Cambridge’s was posted anonymously on social media. It was taken by photographer Jason Bell in March of this year, and commissioned as a ‘thank you’ for the people involved in their 2014 tour of Australia and New Zealand.

Thanks to a follower on WKW, the elusive black beaded clutch that the Duchess carried to the Royal Variety Performance has been ID’ed! It is by Magid and seems to be a vintage piece.

You may recall from my previous post that Kate collaborated with Emma Bridgewater to design a range of pottery to raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) nook appeal.

For every mug sold, Emma Bridgewater will make a £5 donation towards to building and equipping a new hospice.

On Thursday, shoppers in the town of Holt spotted Kate leaving the Antiques Emporium. She was accompanied by a body guard and looked like she had a successful shopping as she carried a number of shopping bags.

The Royals Bid Farewell to New Zealand

On The Cambridge’s last day in New Zealand, William and Kate braved the rain and paid a visit to the Royal New Zealand Police College in Wellington. After commemorating Kiwi police officers killed in the line of duty, the two visited the facility’s Dog Training Centre, where they got to meet some of the dogs and even held some puppies.

The couple went from their final engagement to the Civic Square where hundreds of royal watches had gathered to catch a glimpse of the couple during their last walkabout.

Then it was off to the airport in Wellington where a Royal Australian Air Force plane was ready and waiting to fly to Sydney and finish the rest of the royal tour in Australia. Prince George joined his parents in bidding farewell to New Zealand as the trio boarded their plane.

Kate, once again, shopped her closet and wore her indigo tweed jacket and matching pencil skirt designed by New York based Kiwi designer Rebecca Taylor (pre-fall 2012 collection). The jacket has floral accents on the round neckline, and a frayed trim and hook-and-eye front.
