Following this morning’s engagement for World Mental Health Day, the Cambridges made a quick change of clothes so they could get to the Wales vs. Australia rugby match.
You can just about see the Duke and Duchess in the crowd.
Two disadvantages facing many photographers at this afternoon’s match: darkness and distance, making it difficult to shoot stellar pictures.
We apologize for the grainy quality.
Kate was as animated at this match as she has been at many previous sporting events.
Very engaged in the match.
William was attending in his role as Vice-Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union.
You can just about see his Welsh Rugby Union scarf.
Ultimately the match did not turn out in Wales favor.
For better quality images, here is a link to the Daily Mail’s story.
This offers a good look at the detailing on the back of the piece, especially the area just above the waistline.
Underneath the jacket Kate wore a black or navy turtleneck; my guess is that it’s black. From what we could see her scarf was maroon or burgundy.
Kate wore her trusty Aquatalia Rhumba boots for the first time in many months. As we’ve written in previous posts, Aquatalia has discontinued the style; with the exception of Russell & Bromley in the UK, the boot is now very difficult to find. The only retailer with any kind of inventory is Jildor Shoes, where the Rhumba is $725.
In Canada Hudson’s Bay has the boot in black just a few sizes; it is on sale for $596, that is roughly $460 USD. If interested in the boot in brown suede, Neiman Marcus Last Call has it in very limited sizes, it is on sale for $398. Lord and Taylor also has the Rhumba in brown in a few sizes, it is on sale for $616 (if you order this holiday weekend shipping is free). Finally, we found very limited inventory at Walin and Wolff.
The Duchess kept on the earrings she wore for this morning’s engagement, her new Kiki McDonough ‘Lauren’ yellow gold and pave diamond pair.
The earrings are priced at £2200, just about $3400 at today’s exchange rates. (Please see our editor’s note below about the earrings.) They are offered in a variety of metals and finishes.
There are pendants in the new collection as well.
It was a delight to see Kate at two engagements this weekend.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Kiki McDonough initially thought Kate’s earrings were the Lauren Yellow Gold Leaf Earrings, but it was ultimately determined they were the pavé diamond pair. The post has been edited to reflect the newer information.
