Kate Middleton’s First Public Speech: Listen NowMar 19, 2012 @ 10:40 am
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge gave her first public address today—nearly a year after she married Prince William—at EACH’s Treehouse Children’s Hospice in Ipswich, England, an organization that supports children with life-threatening conditions and their families. She began her speech by thanking the crowd and giving a nod to her royal man, who she said would have loved the facility. “A view of his, that I share, is that through teamwork so much can be achieved,” she said. “What you have all achieved here is extraordinary.” For her wardrobe choice, she gravitated toward one of her go-to colors, sapphire blue (it matches her ring), and chose double-breasted dress by Reiss. And it looks like she pulled this one out of her mother’s closet—according to Kate Middleton Style, the dress dates back to 2008, and it was a piece her mother first wore to the Royal Ascot in 2010.
