For her first royal engagement of 2014, the Duchess visited the National Portrait Gallery in London on 11 February; where she wore a long, dark dress from Jenny Peckham with the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace, which was loaned from the Queen who was given it as a wedding present. Kate’s 2012 portrait hangs in the gallery, as well as twenty portraits of her ancestors, Dr James and Harriet Martineau.

For her second royal engagement, the Duchess attended the opening of the ICAP Art Room at Northolt High School in Ealing. She wore a bright light blue dress which was designed by L.K. Bennet. Kate is patron of The Art Room Charity.

    I don’t understand how Kate, a commoner and descendant of coal miners, has famous ancestors (Dr James Martineau and Harriet Martineu, the great aunt and the great uncle of Kate’s great great grandfather Francis Martineau) whose portraits are in the National Portrait Gallery.
    Am I missing something?
