We have a number of updates today, beginning with news that Kate was out and about this afternoon.
The Duchess and Prince William are seen leaving Kensington Palace in the photo above. They were joining Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the way to Windsor. Here you see the motorcade with all four as they drove up the Long Walk to Windsor Castle.

It is from the brand’s Michael Michael Kors collection, the lower-priced line targeted at a somewhat younger demo than the primary collection. The midi-length dress is 100% polyester; it fastens up the front with buttons, and comes with a coordinating belt. The colors are officially called begonia pink and true navy; the dress is fully lined and machine washable. As of 6pm Thursday night it looks like Michael Kors has restocked the dress in almost all sizes on the US site ($175); it is available in all sizes on the UK site (£215). A big “thank you” to HeavenQRF on Twitter for her speedy ID of the dress, and also to Perth’s Fashion for her help.
The print was featured on quite a few items this spring. Below, left to right: the Carnation Ruffled Dress ($225); Carnation separates in a tile blue and black colorway; the Floral Georgette Dress ($140) showcases the larger-size version of the print in the pink and navy; small leather goods are also available.
Kate sported another pair of Givenchy sunglasses, the sGV 767 09X5 style.
Also today, an answer to a longtime UFO puzzle.
Many will recognize the item right away; it was worn by the Duchess to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July 2014. For years many of us have looked (and looked) for the piece. The answer came from Lady Coventry on Twitter last Saturday, when she shared a link to an eBay auction. The Alena top by Reiss was recently offered in an eBay auction, allowing us to read more about the piece and see better photos of the garment. It is a blend of 78% cotton/22% silk, with a stand collar, pin tuck pleats on the front and back, button front with contrasting buttons, and binding at the armholes.
It is nice to have this one resolved, it looks like a fabulous top.
