We have some followups from the last several days’ engagements we want to share, but before we get to that, a new engagement for Kate’s Calendar.
Now to the first ‘thing we missed,’ it involves what Kate wore for her visit to BBC Radio 1 last Thursday with Prince William. As many of you mentioned on Facebook and Twitter and in your comments, it looked like Kate was in something other than skinny jeans. It is tough to see in this photo, but Kate’s definitely wearing trousers or denim with a flare at the hem. You can also just see that her shoes appear to be a point-toe style.
That is quite a shift for the Duchess! Hopefully we’ll see more in the weeks to come.
With throngs of well wishers crowded at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, Kate, William and the newest royal, the Princess of Cambridge, met the media and the public.
For those who weren’t able to follow the live blog we’ll do a quick recap of things, beginning with word from Kensington Palace that the Duchess had been admitted to the hospital at 6am London time, 1am EDT.
Media and the public started descending on the Lindow Wing.More from Gordon Rayner’s story in the Daily Telegraph:
In a virtual re-run of her hospital admission in July 2013, the Duchess, in a silver Mercedes estate car (Range Rovers and Jaguars are the usual royal vehicles), arrived at 6am, just 15 minutes later in the morning than she had done with Prince George, and slipped unseen into the aptly-named Cambridge Entrance.
Many media had been at the hospital all week, if not longer.
Less than three hours later came word (again via the Kensington Palace Twitter account) that Kate and William were the parents of a baby girl.
Prince William was said to be with the Duchess when the Princess was born. As the day wore on more media came to the hospital, international interest in the event was extremely high.
