It’s not much, but we’ll take our royal fashion where we can get it these days. Mrs. Cathy appears for a blurry split second to talk about the upcoming gallery show of her #HoldStill2020 initiative and the big takeaway here is that she loves herself some decorative plates.

Introducing the #HoldStill2020 judging panel: – The Duchess of Cambridge – Director of @NationalPortraitGallery, Nicholas Cullinan – Writer and poet, Lemn Sissay MBE (@sissaylemn) – Chief Nursing Officer for England, Ruth May – 2018 Portrait of Britain Winner, Maryam Wahid (@MaryamWb) From the 31,598 submissions, these amazing judges have chosen one hundred images that will feature in a gallery without walls – a one of a kind digital exhibition – which will launch on Monday 14th September. “I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has entered and taken part. And a big thank you to my fellow judges. I hugely appreciate the time and dedication that they have shown towards the project.” – The Duchess of Cambridge
The dress is cute enough, from what we can tell. Very much in the Cathy mode of low-key floral day dresses. The only thing slightly notable is that it’s Zara and the color story is a little drab. Also, the sleeves are kind of ugly:
If that’s their home in Kensington Palace, it looks like a 5-star hotel suite, which is kind of not surprising. No tea no shade against the Cambridges but they’ve never given any indication that their tastes run toward the modern.
Anyway, let’s play another game of “What Shoes Would Cathy Wear With This if She Actually Was Outside?” Think long and hard, now! This is a tough one and there are so many ways she could go here. Haha, just kidding. It’s beige espadrilles. In the summer, it’s ALWAYS beige espadrilles.
