Hopefully we'll see closeups of that as well to confirm.
I was wondering about the bracelet as well - it looks really nice

The Mail photo (first one) looks like it's the same one.

Love the earrings...the gown is hideous. Sorry, but that is just awful! The makeup is over the top, as well. Sigh...

Kate must be devastated that Will is leaving for the Falklands in January for six weeks, but she's a military wife and has to expect that. She also knew in advance that this was going to happen, so she's had time to prepare herself. But it's still hard, I'm sure.

And as she mentioned while she was here in Canada she worries each time her husband has to rescue someone so I can't imagine how worried she'll be now that they'll be apart. I mean I know the stint is only one month but I'm sure it'll still be hard on her.Hopefully it's something she was able to talk about with the military wives at the dinner tonight.

I think it'll be very difficult, especially since she's just getting used to being a working royal (even if a part-time one), but with the support of her family and William's family, I want to say she'll do all right. I think having some sort of preparation and knowledge that such a deployment was going to occur was a great help; it made the news perhaps a little less overwhelming.

I remember watching one of the tour clips and hearing her say that. Like you, I hope she'll be able to find some support in other spouses on the base in Wales, and of course in her and William's family.

By the way, thank you so much for all the pictures, articles and other links. It's appreciated.

I like the gown except for the left sleeve and think that it would have been prettier sleeveless or with both shoulders covered. The flow and draping of the material is beautiful, though. As for Kate's make-up, more makeup makes sense in the evening. Her eyeliner doesn't look as harsh here as it does in sunlight.

It's a wonderful cause to support, the Memorial Arboretum.

Sigh? Well that is your opinion, but I completely disagree. It's a classic grecian design which she carries it off very well, and the fabric is soft and flowing which is perfect for a formal evening event. I also can't understand your view on the makeup being over the top. It's an evening event and entirely appropriate to wear darker colors.

I actually went through the entire Tumbler account; very nice photos and GIFs of Will and Kate all the way back to their engagement.

Looking at some of those was a little nostalgic. Still can't believe it'll be a year since the announcement of the engagement.

It can perfectly be true because they are in London. The diner yesterday evening and the cenophah on sunday morning. So it's totally comprenhensive if they attend a match on saturday night being the morning after in London for the ceremony with the royal family

There is a difference between evening makeup and theatrical make-up. Kate's makeup was more the latter than the former.

I said nothing detrimental about the fabric.

Thanks for the video, Ghost Night. I had to when the camera was zeroing in on Kate's hands hovering over her abdomen. Are they trying to insinuate something??
