The Duchess wore a new dress by Alexander McQueen for this evening’s Team GB reception at Buckingham Palace.
We are back with a couple of updates. The first tidbit is an addition to Kate’s Calendar for an event taking place this Friday.
This promises to be a fun engagement. Below, Kate on the cover of this spring’s issue of Air Cadet magazine.
People have been asking about Kate at Wimbledon. Unfortunately we don’t have specific information regarding her possible attendance at matches. Friday Andy Murray plays in the men’s semi-finals; we don’t expect Kate to be there because of the Air Tattoo commitment. Should Mr. Murray be victorious in that match he would then play on Sunday in the men’s final; that match is scheduled for a 2pm start on Centre Court.
UPDATED 7PM EDT July 6: Emily Andrews of The Sun reported on Twitter that Kate will attend Wimbledon on Thursday. “Kate will be at Wimbledon tomorrow, watching Serena & Venus Williams in their semi-final matches on Centre Court.”
As promised, we are back with polls on the many styles worn by the Duchess this past week. However, we have an update to Kate’s Calendar to take care of first.
Wednesday, June 22: Kensington Palace confirms a Daily Mail report that Kate will host a fundraiser for the EACH Nook Appeal at historic Houghton Hall, the stately home of the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley.
