In her first appearance since returning from a tour of Asia with Prince William, The Duchess of Cambridge was on her best behaviour this weekend… trying not to upstage another bride at a wedding!
Kate Middleton was all smiles on Saturday as she attended the wedding of her family friend Thierry Kelaart at the glamorous St Bartholomew’s Church in Oxfordshire, England. The Duchess of Cambridge was there with her sister Pippa and mother and father. Michael Middleton even walked the bride down the aisle, whose own father sadly passed away in 1992.
Prince William was an absentee due to his duties with the RAF (Royal Air Force). He is currently based in North Wales, where he serves as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot. Kate looked happy with her family though, and guests thoroughly enjoyed the hour-long ceremony and low-key reception, at the bride’s nearby family home.
Media outlets picked up on the fact Kate was wearing the same long-sleeved Erdem dress that she first wore at festivities to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June. But if anything, it should make a nice change for the Duchess of Cambridge to be recognised for wearing any sort of clothes!
