Duchess of Cambridge flaunts new ‘do in blue Preen Everly dress at Natural History Museum
DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE, Kate Middleton, sported her new hair – a much shorter style which has been labelled the ‘kob’ – as she attended the reveal of the whale skeleton at the Natural History Museum.
The 35-year-old wife of Prince William attended the unveiling of the new exhibit tonight and became one of the first to see the 25-metre long skeleton dubbed ‘Hope’, which is suspended from the ceiling in the revamped Hintze Hall.
The Duchess wore a light blue Preen Everly dress (£657) and Prada wavy strap sandals, and finished off he look with a pair of Cassandra Goad earrings and a purple clutch bag.
Before taking to the stage for her speech, the Duchess exchanged words with Sir David Attenborough.
The whale skeleton has replaced Dippy the Dinosaur who was on display int he museum for almost 38 years.
The Duchess took a tour of Hintze Hall during her visit and saw 10 other displays chosen from the museum’s collection of more than 80 million specimens.
Last night, she was pictured wearing Princess Diana’s favourite tiara to a lavish state banquet at Buckingham Palace.
Kate looked stunning in a plunging pink dress and the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara during the banquet as part of the state visit of the Spanish royals.
The rose pink custom-made gown was by Marchesa and it was much more revealing than her usually choices.
It featured a deep V neckline which showed of a hint of her cleavage.
The dress was fitted to the waist and came out in a full skirt, and it also had sheer lace full-length sleeves to balance out the skin showing neckline.
To complement her daring neckline, the Duchess wore an opulent necklace owned by the Queen.
The Ruby and Diamond Floral Bandeau, was a wedding gift from the Queen’s parents.
Bought by Margaret Greville, a close friend of her mother’s, from the jeweller Boucheron in 1907, it was given to the Queen Mother on Greville’s death in 1942.
The intricate piece is set in silver and gold, in an unusual V-shape and features several sizeable rubies.
The Queen had the necklace shortened by removing two small floral pieces from the sides – something she often does with necklaces so that they fit her slim shoulders.
