In almost every instance being a Royal is a job for life, whether one is born into it or marries into ‘the firm’. It is also a job that frequently means your life is not your own. Even when on a rigorously scheduled Royal Tour there can be deviations from “The Plan,” as was the case today. Part of William and Kate’s ‘personal day’ was replaced by a trip to Slave Lake in northern Alberta, they knew of the extraordinary damage the community suffered from a wildfire and wanted to see it in person.
During the May fire the entire population of the town, 7000 residents, had to be evacuated.
Kate was in her skinny jeans again. Since Saturday several commenters have shared there belief one/both pair of Kate’s jeans are by MiH Jeans. We have been in touch with MiH:
We understand the confusion, one of the challenges on identifying this item was not being able to better see some of the details. Unfortunately we couldn’t see the logo on Kate’s jeans, thus our reluctance to say they were by this company (whose jeans are darling by the way!) Our thanks to the good folks at MiH for their gracious assistance.
The Duchess greeting well-wishers.
The Duchess also wore the Smythe jacket again, over a creamy white ruffled blouse we haven’t previously seen.
The 1 Button Blazer is a jacket we saw earlier on the trip. (For those new to the blog, Smythe is based in Toronto.)
As Eva first shared with us in a comment and we tweeted this morning, Kate’s belt is by Linda Camm.
Ms. Camm’s company is located in Tanzania, she works with more than 200 Masai tribeswomen and others creating leather products with exquisite beadwork.
One update to yesterday’s post: the debate continues about the Duchess’s shirt, there are some reports it is by Burberry, we will update if/when we verify it is the Burberry shirt.
Finally, today’s photo-that-has-nothing-to-do-with-Kate’s-clothing showcases six-year-old Riley Oldford, below we see the Prince chatting with him.
Much as Riley seems to enjoy meeting the Prince, he was not letting go of those flowers for *anything*. They were not for the Prince, he wanted to give them to someone else.
And he did.
Hello and happy Saturday! It’s time for our first poll asking which of Thursday’s ensembles did you like best:
We’ll keep this one running through tomorrow, feel free to leave comments as well!
