Earlier in the day we watched as The Duchess of Cambridge picked up a field hockey stick for the first time in awhile at Olympic Park. ”The last time I played was 2005, maybe. It feels like I haven’t held a stick for ten years,” Her Royal Highness told the players, according to the Daily Mail. ”This is going to be so embarrassing. My brain thinks I can do all these wonderful things but my body just doesn’t play ball.
Then it was time to accompany Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall to the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, where Catherine looked ladylike in a steel grey dress with floral detailing at the neck from Orla Kiely’s Autumn/Winter Collection, Clarence House told Grazia.
Catherine was introduced to The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts by her father-in-law. ”They have a shared interest in art, art therapy and children,” a Clarence House spokesperson told the Daily Mail. Inside the gallery, Catherine and Prince Charles viewed a special exhibit of work created by children across Britain, which will be displayed to mark the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympics this summer.
