She looked great, love the hair, dress, and shoes.
Was she there just to give the exhibit promotion or to learn more about what she is a patron of? JW
Also does it look like she cut her hair?

An article form 'The Telegraph' about the tour of the exhibit. It also states that Catherine will be visiting her other charities and doing a lot of work with them as well as a Scouts troop in Anglesey for the next 6-8 weeks. I love seeing how confident and comfortable Catherine appears, and the fact that she took the time to those who were at the exhibition.

I think Kate looked wonderful and I think she is getting more comfortable with her jewelry; nice to see the bling!

I totally agree with you. Especially when she out of the car.

Yes, that is a great shot of Kate with the camera flashes and from what I can see of some photos where her hair is away from her face, she's wearing the art-deco earrings and also the diamond bracelet first seen at the BAFTA gala in LA. And her hair does look a bit shorter; it seems to spring up a little more.

Good solo performance by her.

I think I'm safe in saying Kate pulled off her first solo engagement w/flying colours!!

Love that outfit. ITA w/those who said it's very 50's in look, but also very classic and classy. Also love the bling Kate paired w/it.

She looked relaxed and confident and it was lovely to see. From all accounts, Kate did a fantastic job w/her first engagement as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge. :o)

Thanks to one and all for the links!!

She looked at ease during this event. I'm hoping that we'll have the opportunity to see her at another solo engagement soon.

The Portrait Gallery must be accustomed to special events, and the directors would have much experience in speaking to people about art, all of which eases the event more than (for example) visiting land mine victims. I think she chose her event well - and that it's important she have some fun on her own while William is away.

It's the sort of thing a young woman would want to do anyway, but I wonder how it feels for her that she can't really just pop in during regular hours and have a peek at the Lucien Freud exhibit?

Well once again Catherine has done an excellent job. She looked wonderful and she handled her first solo appearance with grace and ease. She is a natural and thank goodness she was prepared and given time to ease into her new role. I think William will be very proud of her. Well done Catherine.

Tuesday's upcoming 'away day' to Liverpool where she will undertake 3 separate engagements will certainly be interesting. I'm glad she's chosen to head to the North of England for her first full day of engagements.

She looked good, but then she should. She performed well for her first real solo engagement, but again I would expect her to after the amount of time she's had to practice. We'll see what liverpool brings.
