We're back with an unexpected post before today's Easter Sunday events kick off. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a night off to relax and unwind following a busy day of engagements at a rugby union match in Sydney.
It was the first time the royal couple had been out in the evening away from royal duties and Prince George since the tour began. The couple enjoyed the match between New South Wales Waratahs and South Africa's Blue Bulls.
William and Kate sat in the corporate box in the Allianz Stadium where William enjoyed a beer.
I absolutely adore this photo of Kate and William snuggling. It's very natural (and really quite romantic). The two have excellent chemistry and it's been very much showcased throughout the tour.

Royal tours are packed with engagements and one imagines, although a wonderful experience, they must be very tiring. It's great to see the Cambridges had the opportunity to take a few hours to enjoy the match together, dress down and enjoy a beer without any interference.
The Waratahs won the game by a final score of 19-12.
I'm a big fan of Kate's casual ensembles and this one was no exception. The Duchess wore a stylish grey sweater. Given the limited view of the piece from the photo it's difficult to be completely certain which one Kate wore but the ladies over at WKW Facebook made two excellent suggestions.
The first possibility is the Gap Luxlight Sweater. The $39.95 piece is lightweight and luxe silky knit. It has long sleeves and a crew neck with interior contrast trim. It's available in several colours on the GAP website. Another item suggested was the French Connection Cashmere Crazy Jumper. The AW13 jumper is currently on sale reduced from £99 to £49.50. I'm leaning towards the French Connection piece at this point.
Kate accessorised with the Beulah London Eden Scarf. It's a gorgeous piece with a fractured dark blossom print. The modal and cashmere blend scarf retails for £125 - for those wishing to purchase it please note there's a 4-6 week minimum delivery period.
The Duchess also chose her comfy Mint Velvet plimsolls.
And completed the look with skinny jeans, most likely J Brand, and her sapphire and diamond drop earrings.
With many thanks to everyone who left comments and emails about the rugby match. We'll see you in just a few hours with our next post! :)
