Another tweet from Richard Palmer: "Kate looks self-assured, like she's enjoying herself."

Catherine looks great and is having fun meeting people and singing the anthems. What a beautiful, sunny smile she has - with charming dimples.

Agreed, she does look very comfortable. Catherine did well to learn the Welsh national anthem in advance.

It is also clearly very windy there.

I only hope Catherine didn't sing the parody for English speakers which sound quite similar to the original text...

My hen laid a haddock, one hand oiled a flea,Glad farts and centurions threw dogs in the sea,I could stew a hare here and brandish Dan's flan,Don's ruddy bog's blocked up with sand. (Cytgan - Chorus) Dad! Dad! Why don't you oil Auntie Glad?Can whores appear in beer bottle pies,O butter the hens as they fly!From Wikipedia: Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Catherine looks so elegant (more than usual) in that outfit! She does seem confident and sure of her position, she seems to be grasping the "royal lifestyle" so to say.

Unless I'm mistaken, this may be one of the first times we've seen Kate with her hair pulled up and back. Perhaps a hint of how it will look at the wedding. I am hoping that her hair is pulled up and back for a nice tiara. I don't like brides with their hair hanging down --- looks too messy.

Yeah, she really does look confident. I really like the outfit.

Suztav, I think you're right. I can only recall one other time when she wore her hair pulled back. I actually like it this way. Hopefully she'll wear it up for the wedding.

Here are a few more photos.

I've watched the event on Sky news. I've really appreciated how Kate seemed very self-assured.
