We are back with a quick update to Kate’s Calendar, and then a look at a topic many of us have wondered about as we have followed the Duchess’s style. First, the engagement added to Kate’s calendar.

Friday, June 16:  In her role as Patron of the 1851 Trust, the Duchess will attend the charity’s final Land Rover BAR Roadshow at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre east of London. Kate will join in an educational treasure hunt with students from four East London schools; the group will also spend time with Sir Ben Ainslie, leading the British effort to win the 2017 Cup.

Qualifying races for the finals have been underway in Bermuda for 10 days. This is the latest from the America’s Cup site:

…the four teams competing in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs Semi-Finals; Sir Ben Ainslie’s Land Rover BAR, Dean Barker’s SoftBank Team Japan, Peter Burling’s Emirates Team New Zealand and Nathan Outteridge’s Artemis Racing, are set to resume their battles with each other today. 

Sir Ben Ainslie’s team currently trail the Kwis 3-1 in the battle to the first-to-five points needed to progress through to The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs Finals.

We are back with some quick updates and then the first of our pieces reviewing what Kate wore in 2016.

We begin with two new engagements on Kate’s Calendar next week.

  • Wednesday, January 11th: Kate and William will visit Child Bereavement UK’s London Centre; this is the Centre’s one year anniversary. The Duke & Duchess will see a Family Support Group session where children, their parents, and carers meet other families to explore themes of memories, feelings, support networks and resilience.  Prince William is the organization’s royal patron.
  • Wednesday, January 11th: The Duchess will also visit the Anna Freud Centre’s Early Years Parenting Unit (EYPU) to learn more about their work with families who have children under five years old. This is the Duchess’ second visit to the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families since she became the charity’s patron in May of last year.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Also today, news about an honor I thought was announced last year, but apparently was not: Kate has been made an honorary lifetime member of the Royal Photographic Society.
