I do know via NPG it will be sometime in the morning
Quote:

Portrait Gallery ‏@NPGLondon @GaryFry2012 The Duchess will be attending an opening event for the ‪#Roadto2012 exhibition, which will open to the public at 12pm.
Hence that means she'll be seeing it in the morning cause I doubt she'd go see it after it was open to the public. I think she's prob gonna get the first viewing. Either way I'll be here all night waiting but I'll prob only be able to stay till bout 1:30am PST since I got an early morning tomorrow.

Need sleep so I'm out for the night. It's been fun glad I was able to stick around this time and take part. Looks like updates are slowing down so I reckon we won't get much more till later when pro pics are released and articles are put together. I'm sure they'll be posted by other members in due time and when I get up I'll add in whatever I can find that hasn't already been posted.

Going for gold! Duchess of Cambridge heralds next week's Olympics by wearing a gold hooped necklace during her visit to the National Portrait Gallery | Mail Online

fandesacs2003 07-19-2012 05:54 AM

She is very pretty. I like her dress so much. Nevertheless, I always feel so insecure when I see her without any bag... even driven by a car, I can not understand how a woman can step out without even not a lipgloss or her mobile phone. Unless she has a bag, which she lets into the car...

Artemisia 07-19-2012 06:23 AM

Wherever she goes, and especially on official occasions, Kate is accompanied by an assistant who probably has everything necessary at hand.
It's a bit like the Queen's bag; while Her Majesty is always seen with her trusty Launer bags, her lady-in-waiting carries a much larger brown bag with all necessities.

That's what ladies-in-waiting or assistants are for (probably Rebecca Deacon in Kate's case). Kate's not going to start texting in the middle of an official engagement, or touching up her lipstick (although I seem to remember the Queen doing so at least once on a visit). While I'm sure the Queen keeps a few bits and pieces in her handbag, I'd hazard a guess that her LIWs are carrying more items that might be needed - like a spare pair of tights, for example. Personally, I prefer not to carry handbags, as I feel much more comfortable with both hands free.

The DM article states that Kate wrote her dissertation at St. Andrew's on the photography of Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland. Did we know this already?

Lumutqueen 07-19-2012 06:41 AM

I've heard the dissertation thing before, never really gave it much credit.

Yes we did, somewhere in one of the many, many, many old Kate Middleton threads is a link to a list from St. Andrews for the dissertation topics and results for Kate, William and everyone else that year.

EIIR 07-19-2012 07:17 AM

I must have missed that. It's a very interesting choice, particularly given the controversy about Carroll's tendency to photograph little girls, often in a state of undress. The literary community have long debated Carroll's motives in doing so. Certainly not a 'safe' choice by Kate.

Thanks!
Normal price! They are both very rich by their own.

carlota 07-20-2012 02:16 PM

wow. 49k is definitely lots for a neckless. i wonder if this was a gift by someone or she bought it on her own (maybe it was lent by cartier?). i personally don't find it very appropriate in these economic climate to wear a 49k piece of jewelry so casually, for a daytime event.

appart from that, she looked lovely and the dress was perfect for her.
