What a nice surprise to see new pictures of Kate, George and Charlotte this evening! (The photos were published midday, but I just got home a bit ago, thus the tardy post.)
Prince William was taking part in the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy at Beaufort Polo Club to raise money for both the Royal Marsden cancer hospital and Centrepoint, a homelessness charity.
Prince William with the Duchess and Prince George today.
The children spent time with their cousins Isla and Savannah Phillips; their aunt, Autumn Phillips, is on the far right.
Of course, it was Savannah Phillips who tried to get George to quiet down at yesterday’s Trooping the Colour ceremony.
The Prince had fun with a large Slinky he played with. (I think that was after his mum helped him untangle it!)
Some may remember Kate bringing George to this event back in 2015.
The Duchess was in a style from Zara, the retailer’s Striped Off the Shoulder Dress ($69.90). It is made of a cotton/linen blend that is a good summer material, and lined in 100% cotton.
The product description refers to the frock’s “plunging neckline and open shoulders.” The dress also features an A-line silhouette, button-front, self-belt, and vertical gathers at the front and back bodice (shown below right).
Many thanks to Laura (SolidMoonlight on Twitter) for identifying the dress.
We saw the Duchess sporting a new pair of shoes, the Russell & Bromley Coco-Nut Espadrille Wedge (£125, about $170 at today’s exchange rates). The style showcases a suede upper, leather ankle strap, and a heel cup made of woven fabric. The Coco-nut also features a classic espadrille rope sole and a goldtone plate at the very tip of the toe box.
At one point Kate was running in the wedges and it reminded me of the time she was running in wedges on Manly Beach during the Australia Tour in 2014. On that occasion, Kate wore her Minx Wedges by Stuart Weitzman.
The Duchess has often used the piece when at Wimbledon.

It was fun seeing the children’s antics today; they seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely.
It’s Ray-Ban style #RB4259 616613 and it certainly looks like this could be Kate’s pair. The logo on the side seems the same, the stems look the same and it’s the gradient lens that Kate favors. I do not have better quality or hi-res photos I can post, I haven’t been able to locate any that offer more clarity or detail. From what I can tell, I think Rachael is probably correct. UPDATE: Ashley of Middleton Maven points out that Kate’s pair don’t have the same nose bridge and the stem is wider, so it looks like we are back to square one on this search.
