The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did another day of work today, this time in Gloucestershire. Their outdoor event almost got canceled because of rain though. The plan was to travel to the Isles of Scilly where they would do a handful of events. I’m looking through @KensingtonRoyal and it seems like they only had to cancel one of those events. They went to visit the Eden Project, where they took a tour (and that’s where these photos come from), plus they stopped by the Tresco Garden. You can see more photos here.
For the day’s activities, Kate wore one of her favorite navy blazers – this is her Smythe blazer, which we’ve seen several times before. It costs £462 and it’s a pretty classic, versatile navy blazer, not really all that notable. Kate paired the blazer with a pair of skinny-cut pants from The Gap, and that’s what’s getting a lot of attention. The pants cost $30. So she’s being called the Discount Duchess again. She also wore those same ugly Monsoon wedges again.
The most impressive thing to me is that Kate pulled her hair back, probably because of the rain. I suspect, judging from those pesky paparazzi photos of Kate on her many tropical holidays, that her hair puffs like crazy in high humidity.
