Today things started off on a familiar note wardrobe-wise as the Duchess attended several Olympic events on her own.
Kate was in a navy Adidas Team GB fleece top for track and field, she then moved on to watch the Team GB vs. Pakistan field hockey match. Below, the Duchess arriving at the Riverbank Arena Hockey Centre for the match.
Beneath the Team GB fleece, she wore her white Team GB polo shirt, and also had on what appears to be the same dark navy skinny jeans worn yesterday, along with the thinner belt noticed by many WKW Facebook friends. The Duchess being seated. In the center of the photo, you also see Sir Tim Laurence (seated), Princess Anne’s husband.
You have a better view of the Team GB polo in this photo from yesterday via London 2012, tas well as that much-discussed “hug” or PDA. Kate carried her Adidas warmup jacket, it can be seen later in the day, as well as her Zara skinny jeans, and the Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon (it is named the Coco Pop at Russell & Bromley in the UK) shoes.
The Duchess then changed clothes for a get-together with William at Team GB house late this afternoon.
The visit to Team GB House was something Kate and William requested; they wanted to say “thank you” to volunteers and military personnel for all of their work helping stage the games.

The couple then went on to the Aquatic Centre, once again they proved a good luck charm, swimmer Becky Adlington won her second bronze medal of the Games. Kate and William chatted with Edward and Sophie, as well as former British rower Sir Steve Redgrave (far left), and Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt (right), all seated nearby.
Prince William joked about the cameras zooming in on him and wife Kate getting lovey-dovey at the cycling last night. The royal couple were pictured hugging and hold each other as Sir Chris Hoy and his team-mates pedalled to gold medal glory at the velodrome.And William told the BBC tonight: “I was absolutely dreading they were going to come and show myself and my wife.
“That would have been very embarrassing.”
