What a great video! I love that she waved at you!!! How lucky you are.

Something looks different to me about Kate. Does it look like she put on some weight? Or maybe it is her hair the way it is styled? I think maybe she put on some weight for this tour. Her face looks fuller right? Either way she is still lovely I liked the 2 dresses so far.

I felt terrible reading about William saying it is a shame about his mother never seeing the flower. So sad.

Can't wait to see more pics!

My question is, how come they do not look tired?! Honestly, if I fly to Spain which is only 3 hours I am exhausted! They have flown to Singapore which is a completely different timezone, yet neither of them look tired. I understand they have other people to carry their luggage, book them into their flight etc. and they likely fly first/business class, but still. Travelling is a tiring thing.

Anyway, I like her hairstyle when they named the Orchid, however was not a fan of the dress. I love William in his suit, men can never go wrong with a suit.

No doubt they are being hounded by press everywhere they go. I cannot imagine how tiring that must also feel too. I do hope they enjoy their tour as every other family member has seemed to enjoy theirs, particularly Harry!

I think water retention is one of the things that happens with air travel.

The blog, What Kate Wore at What Kate Wore has a great bit at the bottom of post " Kate Gives a Nod...State Dinner." It gives links to all kinds of coverage and also lists the times for tomorrow's activities. Thanks to them for all the organization.

Thank you for sharing your video, I'm so impressed with how close you were able to get to TRHs and how clear your video is.

maybe she is just a little puffy and bloated after being on an airplane for 12+ hours. I cant imagine landing and having to pull off that kind of a look. I think she looked great - but there were a few angles that she looked a little fuller. I expect after a good night rest, she will be back to normal.

I love Catherine's look when they were visiting the botanical gardens! The dress was gorgeous and she really should wear her hair like that more often (partially pulled back).

Can't wait to see more!

The new William and Catherine orchid is part of a long tradition of flowers - and the odd vegetable - named for royalty

Most memorable moment of Day 1 for me was seeing the sun glint on Kate's engagement ring as she viewed the Orchid named in Diana's honour.

I dont get what the big deal is. She might not be a person who likes to drink or likes wine.
For such a long flight and straight to work, they look good, really good.

There is also a photo of her with a glass of white wine. I don't see the significance of either tbh.

Haha all thanks to my Samsung S3 mobile phone!!

Yes we were. The Raffles Hotel and British High Comm staff were very friendly. The British High Comm staff even came and ask if we have anything we will like to pass to the royal couple. They asked the press to stand at the opposite side of the barricade so that they do not block our view.

Looking forward to the 2nd day of programme. Hopefully could get a good shot or video again. :)

There is, of course, a simple way to avoid the speculation. One just raises the wine to one's lips for a toast. There is no need to gulp the wine. Given jet lag, alcohol avoidance is recommended in any case.

Well the only reason why the press is making a big deal about Catherine's drink is because the media is looking out for the first signs of pregnancy. They are going to continue to do that until a baby announcement officially comes.

Perhaps she was tired and mistook the water for white wine?

Catherine looks fuller in the face indeed - especially the cheeks. And she was drinking only water.
I assume she is pregnant, but they will wait for after the journey to announce it. So possibly a new little heir for Britian in March or April.
