I could stare at these photos all day. In fact, I actually had to hold back and just pick and choose what I considered the most interesting shots as far body language and facial expressions went. These are photos from yesterday’s Olympic equestrian event (Team Jumping), in which the British team took home silver medals. On Team GB? Zara Phillips, granddaughter of the Queen, daughter of Princess Anne, and cousin to Princes Harry and William. And cousin-in-law to Duchess Kate. Zara’s family was out in full force to support her – and these are some photos of Kate, Will and Harry in the stands cheering her on.
Can I just say? At most public events, Kate’s smile seems shellacked, sometimes forced, sometimes frozen. I don’t really blame her for that, and it’s only a mild criticism of a completely subjective reading of her body language. But in these photos… she seems so un-forced. So much more relaxed. So comfortable. Maybe it’s because she forgot she was being photographed. Maybe it’s because she’s interacting with her husband and her brother-in-law and they’re both paying attention to her and that makes her genuinely happy. Maybe she just loves horsey events.
Kate wore her favorite Stuart Weitzman wedges for the event. I don’t know who made her nautical-striped tank, but the navy blazer (which she took off at one point) is Smythe, and it costs more than $700. Kate did wear the same blazer for the past several days, so I guess that constitutes a “repeat”. Plus, I’m pretty sure that blazer has been in her closet for a while, right? I think she was photographed wearing it last year too. I’m a little bit surprised Kate didn’t wear her own Olympic medal in Waity-ing.
