On Sunday (July 26), Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge visited the Royal Naval Base for an engagement—this was Kate’s first royal engagement since Princess Charlotte‘s birth. In between presenting prizes and trying out the virtual sailing experience, Kate made time to talk to the crowds, including two-year-old Freddie. She asked him how old he was, to which he replied “I’m three.”
Freddie’s mom explained that he’s only two, and Kate told her, “George says that. He thinks that he’s older.”
Oh, George! I can just imagine his reaction when Kate tells him he’s two, not three…
And of course, Kate’s reaction to George’s stare down…
This is one expressive family!
In case you were wondering, Kate was wearing an ME + Em breton stripe shirt, Zara jeans and her trusty Sebago Bala shoes to the event. She switched into a Zara blazer and her Stuart Weitzman wedges to present the prizes—I guess those rumours about the Queen hating Kate’s wedges aren’t true.
For the rest of the day, Kate (and Wills) wore personalized tops from the Ben Ainslie Racing Collection. But when you’re royal, your personalized shirt doesn’t just say your name, it says your title. Swanky!
Little Lottie and George didn’t come out for a day at the races. Instead, they were at home with their nanny—Kate hoped Charlotte was sleeping. But Kate and Wills brought them home a gift: their very own personalized racing tops. Cute, right? Kate said the shirts would fit her kids perfectly. Hopefully one day we get to see them wearing the shirts on a family sailing trip.
Unfortunately, we won’t see the Cambridges for awhile. William has started his job as an air ambulance pilot, and Kate is still on maternity leave. It’s likely Kate will return to official duties come the fall. Until then, royal fans.
