Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had an “away day” in Wales, paying a visit to Pembroke Refinery, which celebrated 50 years of services (it was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in 1964).
Following that, Catherine and William attended the Wales vs Australian rugby game at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, which they traveled to from Pembroke via helicopter, according to the Daily Mail. At halftime, the couple met with injured servicemen; tomorrow they will attend Remembrance Sunday in London.
Catherine wore a wool blend Matthew Williamson coat in “Pacific Opal” ($2,650). Under it, according to What Kate Wore, was a Hobbs silk jacquard wrap dress embossed with animal print. She tied the look together with Kiki McDonough green amethyst earrings and her Aquatalia “Rhumba” boots, a wardrobe staple.
It’s said (by my mother and other women who have had more than one child. Scientific research at its best) that one begins to show earlier the second time around. This is true for Catherine, who is about four months along. I couldn’t help but notice the adorable little bump popping out beneath her coat. Also, don’t get excited about baby #2 being a boy, because Catherine wore both pink and blue during her first pregnancy. The trickery!!!
1. “Wind in my hair, spare in there” *points to tummy hosting a fetus that, once fetus-free, becomes washboard-like*.
2. “The last turkey one carried was a whopper. A bit nervous about the size of this little podge.”
3. “Here I am, hurrah!” – Royal Fetus
4. “You dumb dumbs think I’m a boy because mum dressed me in baby blue. She also wore pink to the 2013 Trooping of the Colour, and George popped out a month later. Get a clue.” – Royal Fetus
5. “You don’t happen to have a couch on which I can lay for a moment, do you?”
This coming week, we’ll see Catherine at two events. On Wednesday, November 12th, she will attend a SportsAid athlete workshop at the GSK Human Performance Lab (GSK HPL) in Brentford, West London.
On Thursday, November 13th, Catherine and William will attend their first Royal Variety Performance, which has been put on every year since the reign of King George V (with a seven-year gap between its inaugural show in 1912 and 1917, after the end of the Great War). The performances raises money for Entertainment Artistes’ Benevolent Fund, and is expected to be attended by Queen Elizabeth as well.
