Kate wears her favourite LK Bennett nude shoes as she receives Aboriginal Welcomes
Kate looks stunning again in Australia
Kate and William arrived in Uluru, a remote village where they were greeted with a traditional Aboriginal welcome.
A traditional Aboriginal welcome is not for the faint-hearted. Kate and Will were greeted by a topless dancer in line with tradition. Performing the Inma, the story of the woman python and Seven Sisters, Kate and Will embraced the welcome.
After touring the area and presenting certificates to graduates from a training academy, excited beneficiaries showing their hard work were happy to comment to reporters about meeting Kate and William.
The afternoon was spent with artists, Kate had changed into grey and white print dress, and of course, Kate has not been shy in bringing out favourite wedges. There have been many reports over Kate’s travel wardrobe. She has favoured no particular designer, but has honoured Australia by wearing Zimmerman clothing on her last day in New Zealand. Diana Von Furstenburg has been featured in Kate’s travel wardrobe also and Kate wore a blue and white wrap dress with her hair down.
Kate has certainly looked to feature as many designers as she possibly can on this Royal Tour. In doing so, she has never forgotten her favourites, LK Bennett shoes, Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham, but has been careful to ensure she stems away from promoting only British designers on her slight frame.
She has not forgotten that many women still use the High Street and wearing a Zara blazer makes it all the more worthwhile for women to use Kate as a fashion icon and dress in a similar and affordable style. As one of the world’s fashion icons, Kate still retains her roots and her middle-class upbringing so that she can reach out to women everywhere.
The Royal Tour 2014 has certainly melted the hearts of the Australian people. On Easter Sunday, Kate chose a dove grey, Alexander McQueen coat teamed with a Jane Taylor hat. Crowds were wowed as she graced the public crowds with her presence. There is no dwindling of the popularity of Kate as the new modern Royal member of one of the world’s most famous families.
Kate has made fantastic choices for her travel wardrobe. With the right balance of high-end and high-street fashion designers, Kate continues to melt the hearts of the Australian people both as a mother and as a fashion icon.
As we watch Prince George begin to take the crown as the newest member of the Royal Family, Kate continues to dazzle as the down-to-earth beautiful woman that she is.
Kate has also not forgotten up and coming newer designers on the block. Tory Burch is a designer that Kate has not worn before. More information can be found here.
See you soon as we continue coverage of the Royal Tour. Streuth, chuck another prawn on the Barbie folks…
Take a look at Kate and Prince George enjoying the sun on the grounds of Government House in Canberra.
Kate dazzles as her and William crew yachts and show their competitive sporty side..
It is no secret Kate and William have a competitive streak and this was displayed to an eager media as they threw down the gauntlet and competed against each other in a yacht race.
Looking as sophisticated as per usual, Kate dazzled in the Auckland Harbour in a blue and white Me+Em striped top. Within minutes of the Royal couple appearing, the top sold out on the website. That tells us everything about Kate’s influence on the world of fashion and how admired she is for her pin-sharp dress sense.
With her luscious loose, Kate took out a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses to shield her eyes from the sun as she and William set to some fun on the water and to show the world their crewing skills. You just cannot keep a good woman down. Kate sailed to not just one, but two victories over her husband. Kate changed her shows before beginning the water to victory. Initially wearing heeled wedges, she changed to Sebago Balas deck shoes as she went head-to-head with her husband. Her heeled wedges are from designer Stuart Weitzman and combined with skinny jeans and a navy blazer, Kate had the look down to a fine art. High Street giant, Zara was where the navy blue military-style blazer came from. That-a-girl, always in touch with the High Street, Kate never ceases to love affordable clothing that we can all aspire to.
Of course, Prince George remained with his Spanish nanny on Day five of the Royal Tour. Earlier in the day, Kate and William visited with military personnel and their families. William joked with his audience how they are regularly offered babies as a playmate for Prince George. Kate spent time speaking with other mothers about the travails of parenting not to mention the joys.
The day was packed with fun and very casual after official functions with New Zealand’s officials. It was relaxing for both as they enjoyed the wind on their faces blended with the kindness they continually display as a couple. Ruling the waves, Kate and Wills display the natural affinity they have with each as a couple and William graciously accepts his wife is an excellent crewwoman.
Now nick-named as dress down day of Tour 2014, Day five proved to be a roaring success for all who were present. Me+Em had a great day for sales too. With a huge success of sales of the top worn by Kate, Me+Em are one to watch.
New Zealand soon say goodbye to the world’s favourite Royal Couple with two future Kings of England visiting them at the same time. The first in over 30-years since William visited as a baby with his late mother, Princess Diana and his father, Prince Charles. The visit has been a huge honour for New Zealand and by all accounts, one they have thoroughly enjoyed.
Prince William and Kate Middleton took a flight from Wellington to Auckland this morning. The sun finally came out as Prince William and Kate touched down at the Whenuapai Air Base in Auckland. The Day 5 of the Royal Tour began with a visit to the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) base at Whenupai. RNZAF is the largest air force base in New Zealand. RNZAF is a home to more than thousand serving airmen and women. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met 200 Air Force personnel and their families.
It was an informal occasion, which gave Their Royal Highnesses the opportunity to thank personnel and their families for their services. Flight Lieutenant Andrew Fisher said the duchess was interested in hearing about the three weeks he had spent with an RNZAF Orion searching for the wreckage of MH370.”She was interested in how we found it. It was intense flying, we flew around 110 hours in three weeks,” he said. The Duke asked a little girl how she broke her arm.
The Duchess was sported in the navy blue blazer by Zara underneath she wore a Breton Top which features a scoop neckline, ¾ sleeves and ruche detailing to the bottom hem with Zara skinny fit jeans. The Duchess wore her Cartier Watch and her Kiki McDonough Grace earrings. Kate Middleton completed her look with her Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon Wedges. For the boat race Kate Middleton changed from her Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon Wedges to her comfy Sebago ‘Bala’ Boat Shoes. She also wore her Ray ban sunglasses and a baseball cap. The Duke of Cambridge wore a brown trouser and a sky blue shirt with a royal blue sweater.
Following a engagement with RNZAF families, The Royal Couple then travelled to the downtown of Auckland arriving at the headquarters of Emirates Team New Zealand. New Zealand is proud of its achievements in the Americas Cup, where the team won back to back races in 1995 and 2000, to become the first team from outside the United States to win and defend the Americas Cup.
The most fun engagement of the tour thus far took place today as William and Kate competed in boat races. It was the Duchess of Cambridge who came out on top in both races. Kate gave William a cheeky victory salute as she sailed past him. Kate Middleton raced with Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker and Prince William with team manager Grant Dalton.
After the Royal Couple returned to the shore, they went straight out into the harbor again, this time on Sealegs. Sealegs is, as the name suggests, a boat that can be driven from dry land into water and back out again. The Sealegs craft took William and Kate to Westpark Marina, where they returned to the air force base and took a flight back to Wellington. The Royal couple was delighted to receive a mini Sealegs for Prince George.
