Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on first official visit to France

25 March, 2017, 00:47 | Author: Kristopher Anderson

As always, the Duchess looked elegant as she selected a mix of her favourite designers - from British and French to American.

Kate and the Duke of Cambridge met with cultural leaders and French President Fran├žois Hollande to launch "Les Voisins" - a celebration of cultural ties between the United Kingdom and France after Brexit, from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 March.

For a black tie dinner at the British ambassador's residence that evening, Kate made her third outfit change of the day, into an embellished gown by another of her "go to" designers Jenny Packham.

The former Kate Middleton and her husband sipped on beer in London after meeting with families of soldiers from the Irish Guards.

The Duchess has become very adept at championing home grown talent whilst also making sure to promote her host country whilst on royal visits.

On day two of their visit, they also attended a "Les Viosins in Action" event, highlighting "the strong ties between the young people of France and the United Kingdom", a tweet from Kensington Palace read.

Kate emphasised her waist with a back Chanel double C belt and she also carried a small burgundy quilted leather top-handle Chanel bag.

The trip is William's first official visit to Paris since his mother, Princess Diana, died there in 1997.

The two-day visit is Prince William's first official trip to the French capital since the tragic death of his mother Diana, the Princess of Wales, in a auto accident at the Pont de l'Alma tunnel two decades ago.

For the actual match, Prince William donned the same suit he was wearing for the earlier festivities, while his wife traded in her dress for a bright red coat and black gloves. They also met Sgt. Philippe, who has received help from the prosthetics team at the hospital, and will be competing on the French team of Prince Harry' worldwide Invictus Games.

The couple also plans to attend a France-Wales rugby match.
