The show is a endeavor in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, of which Kate is patron.

Kate will meet artists, Gallery patrons, and also view the Mr Lion 14 exhibit created by the Gallery’s community group, Blank Canvas.  The Gallery is located in Margate, a seaside community on the English Channel in Kent. The Turner is considered a major element in Margate’s rebirth and rejuvenation.
  • Wednesday, March 11: Kate’s second engagement is also in Margate, where she will visit Resort Studios, an arts organization located in a restored Victorian warehouse that offers “individual studios, shared facilities, workshop areas and exhibition space.” The Duchess will meet artists, tour the studio facilities and see works created at the studios.

  1. Does anyone know where I could possibly see/meet the Duchess when she’s in New York. Which engagements would most likely result in a walkabout? Also will they release any addresses for the press or anything like that? I really just love to see Kate in person! Any help would be great! Thanks!

  2. Could we start guessing what designer she might wear for these events? It would be fun. I think she will wear a Jenny Packham gown for the Royal Variety Performance.

  3. The SportsBall for SportsAid is November 27th. Kate is not confirmed to be there, but their website is using a promo picture of the Duchess to promote it. Place2Be is also having a Christmas Concert on December 7. Kate may attend either of these.

  4. They should add that on the 22nd it’s prince Georges birthday

  5. Sth to add to the calendar: 4 August 2014, Kate & William are coming to Belgium to attend remembrance ceremony for World War 1, as is mentioned in our quality newspaper ‘De Standaard’ today:

  6. I just wanted to mention how similar Kate’s dress on Valentines day was to on Sophie of Wessex wore once except Sophie’s had long sleeves. I think she wore it at Easter.

  7. She looked beautiful at the christening :)

  8. There is one green army jacket Kate wore in May when she was volunteering at a Boy Scout camp in Windermere and I am absolutely in love with it! Does anyone know the designer or where I can get it?! I’ve been researching but I cannot find it :(

  9. Just curious if it is known that these engagements now being held at KP are because it is a nice venue associated with royal patronages, or are specifically chosen or decided upon with Kate and William in a hosting capacity (in which case you would definitely expect one or the other or both to attend).

  10. What kind of coat did she wear on 6.12.2012.? I would like to buy the same. Thanks

    • If it’s the blue tweed one you’re thinking of, then it’s by Missoni. Don’t know if you can still find it, but you might try for a repli-Kate. Pretty sure I’ve seen it there.

  11. Wow I just can’t wait for the christening ! It’s going to be so exciting and Kate will wear something beautiful I’m sure.

  12. Wow she looked stunning

  13. There is a great deal to admire about Kate and she is a wonderful adddition to thr RF.
    I must say however that I am thoroughly sick of those beige shoes!!!!!
    The blue dress and the one for the church service don’t fit. Perhaps Kate is trying so hard not to look like she’wearing maternity clothes when clearly she is radiantly happy to be so.
    I also think she’s worked hard not to upstage others and that’to her credit. But this outfit (HM 60th anniversary church service) is a gigantic YAWNn.

  14. It’s a shame that William cannot attend the gala for centerpoint on his own. maybe he could take one of the people who work there or live there. of course we want everyone to be happy and healthy first.

  15. I think the recent news of the Duchess’s pregnancy and her unfortunate experience with hyperemesis gravidarum (horrible condition, nothing like the usual morning sickness) will alter her schedule. They seem to have annouced early owing to her hospitalization. We may not see much of her for a while.

  16. Very helpful. Thank you.

  17. Yay! No more searching! Thanks Susan!!

  18. I can’t wait! I just adore Kate’s fashions! I know she’ll find something magnificent to wear!

  19. looking forward to seeing this visiton tv. positive they will make a great job of it in there own down to earth way. a breath of fresh air in the british monarchy although i like the queen. cant help how she was brought up. safe journey.
