Yesterday, the Royal Foundation Forum was not the only official event in the schedule of Kate Middleton: the same evening, the 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge was waiting at the National Portrait Gallery where the Victorian Giants: “The Birth of Art Photography” show takes place.

Duchess Catherine took part in the preparation of the exhibition: she wrote the foreword for the catalog and came up with signatures for some of the exhibits. The exhibition features works by Oscar Reylander, Lewis Carroll and Julia Margaret Cameron.

This week in London, the thermometer dropped to minus eleven degrees, it was snowing and a strong wind was blowing. However, the cold weather did not force the wife of Prince William to wear a warm coat. From the car Kate came out in a light dress and shoes.

To attend the exhibition, the Duchess Kate chose the black Orla Kiely dress with a bright floral print for $ 675, suede shoes, Kiki McDonough earrings with amethyst and pink tourmaline, and Jimmy Choo clutch.
