William and Kate have arrived at Somba K'e civic Plaza in Yellowknife, Northwest territories. They were greeted by crowds eager to see the royal couple after months of preparation and planning. William made a speech speaking of his joy at being in Canada. Immediately after this formal event it was time for some fun for the Duke and Duchess!
Kate who was a wonderful hockey player during her school years initiated a game of 'street hockey' However, due to wearing her favourite £175 LK Bennett heels she opted to cheer on William instead. She said to a player from Yellowknife 'I would have taken a shot if I wasn't in heels'. (We would all have loved to have seen that :)) No doubt Kate would have pulled it off with her usual effortless elegance!
Kate did throw the ball in to start the game. Despite Prince William's best efforts he failed to get a goal in. He even jokingly said to 6'3 goalie Calvin Lomen 'You realise you've got to let one in'. Duchess Kate looked beautiful in a cream Malene Birger bullet dress (A high street Danish designer) I would have sworn myself it was either a McQueen or Erdem number. The structured shoulders are gorgeous and add an edginess to Kate's classic look. It was available HERE but seems to be sold out even before Kate wore it! Fascinating to see the quality of clothes on the high street but Kate could make a paper bag look good. She teamed the dress with the aforementioned LK Bennett heels. The Duchess also dispalyed her gardening skills again planting a shrub. There has been some news from St. James's palace announcing another public engagement for the couple: They will fly to Slave Lake to meet with rescue workers who fought wildfires that caused great destruction in the area last month. (And they thought they were getting a day off) It is nice to see them making the most of their tour!
Another outfit for the beautiful Duchess before departing with William on a sea plane for Blanchford lake. I think Kate wore a camel coloured Burberry shirt with her sebago loafers and jeans. I love this look, She does casual chic so well! If this is it, After much speculation and confusion with the Reiss Ariana the shirt is Burberry (Thanks to the wonderful people at What Kate wore), It has sold out already unfortunately! (Kate may bring retailers out of recession yet :))
