Kate’s Visits to Olympic Events Continue

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.

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.

Totally agree with everyone - keeping her wardrobe consistent to keep the focus on the athletes and off of her wardrobe. Gotta love it!

While Kate has certainly been recycling her outfits, I've wondered if it's an attempt to keep the media focus on the events and athletes as opposed to on the Royal visits. I'm definitely looking forward to some new looks, but I admire that all of the Royals that we've seen at various events are flying the British flag by wearing the official kit.

I like that Kate and other Royals have kept in clothing pretty much that is part of Team GB wear. These are sporting events and not royal events. As heads of constitutional govt., it's good to see many of the Royals supporting and being 'part' of the team by wearing not just England's colors, but the actual shirts/jackets etc.

I like that Kate sticks to team-supporter essentials with just minor changes which maybe help identify her various different appearances for those watching each occasion.

She looks in wonderful shape, and after a minor blip in the shiny-locks department post-pony tail outings I now see we are fully restored to former glory.

I like most of all that she looks happy and comfortable in what she's doing and wearing.
