The Duchess joined Harry and William for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Their first stop today was at the gymnastics competition, the Daily Express has more.

They sat in the family section of the arena shortly before 3pm as gymnasts from across the Commonwealth competed in the men’s and women’s team finals.

Their arrival at the Hydro went almost unnoticed by the crowds until cameras showed them on the arena’s big screens.

We have a very brief post to share on Kate’s appearances for Sunday’s Paralympics. She started the day in casual pieces, worn to watch rowing at Eton Dorney.

She reprised pieces we have seen previously at the Games: Team GB apparel, skinny jeans and red Adidas trainers.

The Duchess then made a change to something more formal, she was presenting medals for the winners in the Discus competition.

Kate was able to award the Gold Medal to Team GB’s Aled Davies.

Kate brought back her Pucci blazer, Paralympics Scarf and Corkswoon wedges for the appearance. Some may remember the blazer from Kate’s visit with the Team GB Hockey teams back in March.

Above she is seen chatting with David Faulkner during that March function. The blazer is a classic double-breasted style with peak lapels, double vents, gold buttons on the front and cuffs.

Next UK still shows the scarves as being available, the small size is discounted to just £2.50, roughly $4 at today’s exchange rates.

Mr. Davies had already won a Bronze Medal this week, he shared his excitement at winning in this Tweet.

We aren’t positive about what Kate wore beneath the jacket. We don’t believe it to be the Roland Mouret Manon dress, as some initially thought, that frock has a slit at the back lower hem and an exposed zipper, traits missing from the piece Kate wore. My guess is that it is a dress and not a skirt, the bunching and wrinkling at the upper hip (two photos up) look like what one might see with a dress, not as likely with a skirt. We’ll update when we find out. It was a fine look for the Duchess, very much in keeping with the low key styles she has been wearing since the Olympics started in July.
