We are back with an update and then we’ll move to our polls.

We begin with a look at something Kate wore in photos published Tuesday by Bild, a German newspaper.



With thanks to Christin Zipfel on the WKW Facebook page for her translation, the text essentially reads:

“A jumper with little hearts over the babybump. No make up. Uncombed casual hair. We see the Duchess of Cambridge from England (6 months pregnant) during a shopping tour in a supermarket. Without any royal features and very normal she did her errands in the only cheap supermarket in her home village Buckleburry”

The Duchess was shown shopping at her local Bucklebury market, Peach’s, perhaps best described to US readers as somewhere between a 7-11 and a small local market. Kate was wearing a sweater by Beulah London, the ‘Delaney‘.

The sweater featured a heart print and was part of the label’s a/w 2014 collection. One FYI: the sweater was only offered in grey; the Bild photo(s) were photoshopped, that is why it looks navy. The sweater is a wool/cashmere blend that originally retailed for £250, but was most recently discounted to £125.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We apologize for the late post on today’s events, we just had power restored after 11 hours without electricity following severe weather.

Kate returned to Emilia Wickstead for today’s Order of the Thistle ceremonies in Scotland. Below we see Her Majesty, Prince William and the Duchess following today’s events, in this photo William and HM have removed their ceremonial garb.

Our post today is a bit unusual in that it really doesn’t focus on a recent appearance by Kate, but rather on a designer she is very fond of, Katherine Hooker.  Below we see the Duchess in a Katherine Hooker coat worn many times, one that was significantly shortened for an updated look at an appearance earlier this year.

Because Katherine Hooker has been such a Kate favorite over the years, and because the company’s US trunk shows are almost upon us, we thought it would be fun to share a few looks from this summer’s collections.

The shows start in Jackson Hole (Wyoming) August 31, with stops in places like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, New York and Washington, DC. Below we show a piece that is new to the collection this year, the Tallulah jacket.

Below we show the Baseball Jacket (L), a detail from that jacket (C), and the Rainey (R).

A nice quality of the stunning pieces from this designer is their versatility, they look splendid in different textiles and weights; below we see the classic Hacking Jacket in linen on the left and a lovely silk matka on the right.

Kate has been photographed several times in the immensely popular Alexander jacket. To see a complete schedule of the US shows, click here. Best of all, appointments are not required, that makes it easy for anyone who decides to pop in at the last minute.

As an FYI, there has been no compensation for this post, nor has any been offered. I am merely a fan of the line and wanted to share the information about the upcoming trunk shows. :)
