I know some of you are hankering after Kate's glossy locks à 2011. So, I thought it might be nice to look back to a great appearance that happened today four years ago...and the hair was perfect. One of my favorite early engagements undertaken by the Duke and Duchess was their visit to William's patronage, Centrepoint. The couple made an evening appearance on December 21, 2011.
Kate was wearing a figure hugging Ralph Lauren dress with a cinched in waist and her favorite Rumba boots. Of course, she was also sporting the engagement ring we were still getting used to sparkling on her finger. The ducal pair pitched in with a cooking class where they made mince pies and gingerbread.
Since this was still within the first year of their marriage, these joint appearances were still so exciting. Even something as simple as Kate getting hands on in a kitchen were exciting snaps.
This olive green dress was picture perfect on Kate. It complimented her tan, set off her glossy chestnut curls, and made her green eyes pop. In this picture you can see Kate's Kiki McDonough "Grace" studs. They are big topaz stones surrounded by diamonds. The earrings have been staples in the Duchess's closet, although we have not seen as much of them recently.
William was (and is) such a perfect gentleman. I think everyone's favorite photos were of the newly married prince escorting Kate to the waiting car.
It was a special night for William and Kate, too. Centrepoint is a charity near and dear to William's heart. He has been a patron for many years and the cause--homeless young people--is very possibly his greatest priority. Introducing his bride to the group's work was obviously a bit of a milestone. Both the royals seemed to love their night out in support of Centrepoint.
