Well, check Miss Duchess of Dullbridge out, getting all patterned and stuff! We almost didn’t recognize her, what with her wearing clothes with a little personality and all.
Yes, that was some serious back-handed complimenting. Let’s go to the tape.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge meet Jonny Benjamin and Neil Laybourn at Kensington Palace. The Duke and Duchess, dropped in on a screening of a documentary about Jonny’s experience and the #FindMike campaign. Jonny regularly attends screenings with young people as a way to encourage open discussion of mental health issues. Around 20 young people from a South London school watched the screening at Kensington Palace and then took part in a discussion, led by Jonny, Neil and Rethink Mental Illness. The children taking part in the session are from a school where Jonny has previously delivered his ThinkWell project.
Knees! And birds! She’s gone all Portlandia on us!
But seriously, it’s cute, no? Our less royal inclinations would have recommended a contrasting belt and shoe, but we get that the Windsor House style tends to be monochromatic a lot of the time. Still, it’s lovely and very approachably casual, which couldn’t be more appropriate for the moment.
But wait! There’s more!
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge smiles as she visits the mentoring programme of the XLP project at London Wall in London, England. XLP supports young people who are facing emotional, behavioural and relational challenges. XL-Mentoring programme since 2008.
This is perhaps more conventional, but it’s still pretty sassy and photogenic. While the black accessories make perfect sense, a more adventurous way to go (which is a moot point, we realize) would have been a bright blue pump.
