Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge arrived at the The Scott-Amundsen Centenary Race at Goldsmith Hall in London today (April 26th) to celebrate what the members of the South Pole Scott Expedition group had achieved. Will and Kate lent support to a group of soldiers who recreated the Scott-Amundsen race to the South Pole, according to the Daily Mail.
The Duchess wore a navy tweed suit by Rebecca Taylor, on which she attached a poppy brooch from the Royal British Legion. The jacket is on sale for $270 at Neiman Marcus, according to Grazia. HRH topped off her look with an Anya Hindmarch Marano clutch and navy suede heels.
Per @TheDuchessStyle (I love my Twitter friends), Taylor told Time Magazine back in February that she would jump at the chance to dress the royal. ”I just think she’s beautiful; I think she’s doing a great job, and I love William,” the Australia-born designer said.
CNN captured fantastic footage of William holding the three-week-old son of Sgt. Paul Vicary, who had taken part in the South Pole expedition. While Catherine was not photographed holding little Hugo, she did tell his parents how “very cute” the infant was. We can understand her reluctance to hold children with all this baby fever swirling around her.
Later on this evening, The Duke and Duchess will attend a reception at the Imperial War Museum to held launch its foundation for First World War Galleries: Centenary Campaign.
