Entrance to the permanent collection is free. It attracts 1.8 million visitors a year and generates nearly 60 per cent of its income from memberships, paid-for exhibitions, its restaurant, publications and corporate support. The rest comes from a government grant of 7,577,000."

Thank you to all who have provided links and pictures.

She looked great, love the hair, dress, and shoes.
Was she there just to give the exhibit promotion or to learn more about what she is a patron of? JW
Also does it look like she cut her hair?

Daria_S 02-08-2012 06:27 PM

An article form 'The Telegraph' about the tour of the exhibit. It also states that Catherine will be visiting her other charities and doing a lot of work with them as well as a Scouts troop in Anglesey for the next 6-8 weeks. I love seeing how confident and comfortable Catherine appears, and the fact that she took the time to those who were at the exhibition.

I think Kate looked wonderful and I think she is getting more comfortable with her jewelry; nice to see the bling!

Yes, that is a great shot of Kate with the camera flashes and from what I can see of some photos where her hair is away from her face, she's wearing the art-deco earrings and also the diamond bracelet first seen at the BAFTA gala in LA. And her hair does look a bit shorter; it seems to spring up a little more.

Good solo performance by her.
