We’ve several updates today covering a variety of topics. We begin with a brief word about the ITV documentary Our Queen at Ninety. The program was very well received, with positive reviews from royal watchers and fashion followers; it also includes a few more clips with Kate that weren’t released prior to Sunday’s night’s broadcast. There is more video from the 2015 diplomatic reception, affording a glance at the back of Kate’s evening gown by Alexander McQueen.
