The Duchess of Cambridge spoke on camera! It only happens once every six months or so, and she always brings so much nervous energy to any kind of prepared speech, no matter how big or small. She’s just not comfortable speaking on camera, I get that. I’ll say this: she’s gotten better? It’s taken a decade, but she has gotten better at it. Kate spoke on camera to promote her appearance tomorrow night at the Natural History Museum, where she’ll announce the winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year at a virtual ceremony. So… wait… it’s a virtual ceremony but Kate will appear in person? And she made this video at the newly reopened museum.
Kate apparently wore black trousers, a black shirt and a tuxedo-looking black blazer. I find the blazer too dressed up for a daytime appearance for what was likely just a private tour of a new exhibition. The lapels are too shiny! But she looks fine, in general. The sausage curls are slowly creeping back, right? And it goes without saying that She Who Shall Not Be Named loved a simple black suit and even a tuxedo pantsuit.
It’s still so weird to me that museums are reopening and that some stuff is going back to “normal” in various parts of the world. Whew. I feel like people are asking for trouble. I plan to be holed up for months longer.
