After years of what the palace is calling “diary issues”, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended their first RHS Chelsea Flower Show tonight.
They toured several exhibits
The Duke and Duchess saw the Charlotte Chrysanthemum, it is up for Flower of the Year and 50% of the royalties from the flower are going to benefit East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
and they saw the 5,000 poppy exhibit of crocheted poppies
On to Catherine’s ensemble for tonight…we’ve seen all the pieces before just not all at the same time so here goes:
Catherine chose her Catherine Walker coat that we first saw in Canberra, Australia. This was one of those bespoke pieces that had us doing what royal bloggers have come to call “fashion math”
she accessorized with familiar pieces.
Her L.K. Bennett Nina Clutch in Trench
Her L.K. Bennett Fern Court Heels in Trench
Her Kiki McDonough Lauren Earrings
and her Cartier watch
