We have something of a ‘catch up’ post; while Kate has been out and about quite a bit, her wardrobe hasn’t changed significantly.
The Duchess was busy today at a variety of Olympic venues, starting at the Aquatic Centre, where she watched Team GB’s synchronized swimmers compete. Kate brought back her Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon wedges and Smythe One Button Blazer, as well as her skinny jeans and Team GB polo. The blazer has been renamed “The Duchess” in honor of Kate, Smythe tweeted an update for those interested in purchasing the jacket, they suggest pre-ordering the piece at Saks, Shopbop and TNT Fashion.
Kate also watched Women’s Boxing, this is the first year the event has been included in the Games. She proved a good luck charm once again, Team GB’s Nicola ‘Babyface’ Adams won a Gold Medal in the Women’s Fly (51kg) wight category.
Tonight she and Harry paid surprise visit to Team GB House, they also chatted with London Fire Brigade volunteers.
And here is one more from Fire Brigade Chief Ron Dobson, he says it is his favorite of the visit.
The Mirror reports on reaction to the visit by rower Kat Copeland:
She said: “I’ve wanted to meet her, all through the Games I’ve seen her at other sports and I keep missing her. She’s gorgeous in real life.
“They were both really nice. Kate had obviously watched all of our races, which was pretty amazing.
“Both of them seem really enthusiastic and excited, they know a lot and they’ve obviously watched it all.
“She was really knowledgeable about our sport and we talked about the cycling and she talked to Brownlee about the triathlon so it’s pretty incredible that they have been watching everything and they really know what’s going on.”
Harry and Kate also spent time with volunteers from the London Fire Brigade.
The lead physiotherapist for Team GB’s Handball squad, Lauren Bradshaw, posted this photo from earlier in the week.
Also earlier this week, Kate enjoyed her time watching Olympic Sailing events at Weymouth.
She was in her skinny jeans, the Team GB jacket and red Adidas Supernova Glide sneakers, opting to pull her hair back while out on the water.
In the photo above you can see Kate’s pearl stud earrings, in the next image we see Team GB gold medalist Ben Ainslie and other sailors.
