I'm glad to see them starting to make more appearances! And this definitely sounds like another worthy cause.

I'm in complete agreement. They're doing their country and family very proud.

Prince William has called the National Memorial Arboretum an "iconic focal point for the Nation's remembrance of British heroes". #royal

William went on, "it is a place of sanctuary....a place of quiet pride in the selflessness and sacrifice of those who have gone before."

Thanks for the preview photos. This gown looks like it has possibilities, so I can't wait to see more pictures. And I'm loving what I can see of that diamond drop earring, and in the full-view photo that could be the diamond bracelet Kate wore at the charity dinner at CH. Hopefully we'll see closeups of that as well to confirm.

That dress

For those who watch Project Runway in the US, that dress looks remarkably like one of the losing entries several weeks ago- was thought to look too much like the Statue of Liberty! I'm sure Kate's gown is lovely though-looking forward to a better picture.

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.
