Kate and Pippa were spotted earlier this weekend walking the beach on Llanddwyn Island, on the south side of Anglesey, Wales. It is called an island, but actually is only cut off at highest tide! I can't be sure, but it certainly seems like the man in matching wellies behind the sisters is Pippa's boyfriend, Alex Loudon. Pippa and Kate look to be having some fun chat time and the whole party is smiling and relaxed. Kate, who has at times opted not to wear her striking Wales sapphire engagement ring, can be seen to have it on today. Another famous friend, although not so famous as her ring, is the lovely cowl necked sweater she wore before the wedding. I loved it then and I love it now! This is the perfect example of dressing a piece up and dressing it down, and also a perfect example of how nice Kate looks even for a walk on the beach!

While I spent most of the day travelling, HRHDuchessKate's blog put some hard work into IDing the various pieces Kate wore today, so if you want to know more about them, I encourage you to check out her blog!
I think I read sometime last year that wherever Kate and Wills have their farmhouse, it has access to a private beach. It isn't a confirmed story, but it does not seem terribly unlikely. I spend prodigious amounts of time staring at the water soaking up the peace and beauty a beach affords, so I would need a private beach if I were the Duchess of Cambridge. I don't see why Kate wouldn't need one too. All that to say, this looks to be a bit of a family sightseeing trip. I have absolutely no idea who the younger looking girl is, but she seems to be part of the Ducal party. Does Alex have a sister who was craving some Princess Time?
I am disappointed that there were no pictures featuring Kate and showcasing a little more of the stunning surroundings. As you can see, it is quite beautiful. So much for the Kate photo drought. So far so good!
