We are back with a number of updates and our first post-tour poll. We begin with engagements that have been added to Kate’s calendar, including one this Monday.
- Monday, October 10: This is World Mental Health Day. Kate, William and Harry will mark the day with events at London County Hall and the London Eye. The trio will speak at a reception that includes the charities that are part of the Heads Together campaign; they will also meet with people who have received mental health help. After the reception they will go for a ride on the London Eye; it will be lit up in purple later that day in support of World Mental Health Day.
- Friday, October 14: The Duke and Duchess visit Manchester for four separate engagements. Their day begins at The National Football Museum, located in Manchester’s iconic Urbis building. (Click here for images of the building.) Next on the schedule, the Manchester Town Hall, for a WWI Centenary event at the Sir Edwin Lutyens-designed Cenotaph. Kate and William then head to The University of Manchester’s National Graphene Institute where they will “tour state of the art cleanrooms and laboratories.” The couple’s final stop is at Francis House Hospice, opened in 1991 by Diana, Princess of Wales. The couple with tour a new £3.5 million wing and meet staff, patients, volunteers and family members.
As anticipated, there are many ‘wardrobe wrap-up’ stories covering Kate’s style in Canada. Today we share just two, starting with a piece from The Telegraph I think you will enjoy: “Every outfit analysed: How the Duchess did Canada in serious high fashion style.” A portion of that story:
When the great white future hope of the Royals (aka The Cambridges) landed in Canada for the start of their latest foreign tour, last week, it was as a perfectly colour-co-ordinated family in navy blue.
Despite a ten-hour flight with two children under four, the Duchess herself looked ready for business in a Jenny Packham fitted dress and elegant hat.
