Kate, William and Harry did ‘posh person casual’ today to support the launch of a sports initiative in Greenwich, South East London.
The trio of Olympic ambassadors attended the launch not just as hand shakers and boring speech givers, they took part in actual sports – Harry in basketball, William in football and Kate in table tennis. I expect that’s why they were dressed so relatvely normal for the occasion.
I can’t ignore my knee-jerk reaction to the Duchess of Cambridge’s beige-ness today. A £35 Hobbs plaid effect white and beige dress with closed toe sling-back beige canvas espadrilles by Pied A Terre (I could really knock off for a beige nap).
I am so over this styling which is allegedly due to a tight budget controlled by Charles but I think is a stab at seeming on-the-level with her public.
Bohomoth interviewed Kate’s mate from toff school who dished that Kate is naturally a shy and unassuming person who doesn’t like to be the centre of attention and that when she found out she was going to join the Royal Family she was very worried about being accepted by the British public.
This totally explains her dedication to cut price and high street price tags, and the nude, black and navy LK Bennett pumps – that must be exhausted at this point.
Also what is her problem with her toes? It’s 24 degrees in London as I write – her feet must be sweltering. It’s summer, Kate. Get yer toes out for the lads.
I really dislike her taste in shoes. Those closed espadrilles are the height of fashion for shuffling Florida residents only and look like they cost £9.99 at BHS. A white textured sandal like this one from Karen Millen would have lifted the look, while sticking to her ‘Plain Jane’ colour-code:
I hope this isn’t a sign of what to expect over the Olympic games from the Duchess of Dull, but in my heart of hearts I know it will be beige all the way – in colour and interest.
