After a spate of public engagements, including the penultimate appearance to which she brought her adorable little boy, Kate has removed herself from the limelight for a time. The Duchess has not been seen since she enjoyed a long day at Wimbledon on July 10th, but we can safely assume the family has returned to their quiet lifestyle at Anmer in Norfolk.
Yesterday, the Queen and Prince Philip opened the East Anglian Air Ambulance at Cambridge Airport, Cambridge, where the Duke of Cambridge (can we fit any more Cambridges in this paragraph?) greeted his grandparents and showed them around. I love whenever William is working or on duty when the Queen visits. It provides unusual and charming moments such as this, when William kissed both grandparents goodbye.

Kate has been quiet, but Britain has been busy. The Queen returned from her visit to the air field to accept David Cameron's resignation and to ask Theresa May to form a new government. The Queen has a new Prime Minister, the second woman in history to hold the role, and the 13th PM in the Queen's reign. The Camerons had bid farewell to Downing Street just a little earlier, and with their departure, we said goodbye to the only Prime Minister and his wife in Number 10 since Kate became a royal.
Without commenting at all on the political persuasions involved, SamCam has provided supplemental fashion interest at events throughout the years. She is at many of the major national events that Kate attends, and just following British news, I have seen many of her stylish ensembles. Samantha drew from many of the designers Kate favors, which was fun to see. Above, she is wearing Roksanda Ilincic, and this looks a lot like Kate's The Fold dress, but with an A-line skirt. She also wears Emilia Wickstead, Erdem, and more. Her sartorial contribution will be missed.
Incoming Prime Minister Theresa May has already shown a flare for Kate's favorites. She wore an Amanda Wakeley ensemble and L.K. Bennett heels to meet the Queen and address the nation yesterday.
