Royal Tour Update: Royals Touch Down in Oz

We can now officially confirm that those pictures of Kate rubbing noses with Maoris simply doesn’t get less cute the more pictures of it that you see. Trust us, Sloanies – we’ve researched this one tirelessly for you! Wills, Kate and baby George have had an action-packed week down under since our last Royal Tour report, and from wine tasting to baby playdates to yacht racing, our gorgeous trio have continued to charm the people of New Zealand left, right and centre. And now they’ve landed on Australian soil for ten more days of appointments, visits, and knockout ensembles. Here are some of our favourite moments from the past few days. And we’re going to put our hands up and admit it right now, it’s all about Kate. Again… 

Kate the Yachtie Hottie

Showing her sassy competitive streak once again, Kate very gamely agreed to play a round of cricket at an engagement in Christchurch to promote the Cricket World Cup. In cute heels and a bright red skirt suit, Kate got her game face on as she stepped in to bat and was very sporting when her husband batted more than one ball that flew past worryingly close to her head. What a girl!

Beating Wills twice in two yacht races around Auckland Harbor last Friday, Kate showed off her cheeky side by throwing her defeated husband a big nautical salute as she sailed past him to claim her victory. Arriving for her race in an immaculate blue and white striped Breton top, gold buttoned navy blazer and ankle-length skinnies, Kate was every bit the yachtie hottie down in Whenuapai.  Know what would’ve totally finished off the look, though? One of our Anchor totes. Just sayin’…

Kate’s Home Run in Christchurch

That LBD

Following in the Queen’s footsteps by incorporating something of her host country’s tradition in her outfit, the dress Kate wore at a reception in Wellington was adorned with a silver beaded fern leaf, the country’s national symbol. The intricate flash of silver detail across her left shoulder and a pair of diamond earrings did all the talking on this simple tea-length little black dress. Just dazzling.

Kate Beams in Mellow Yellow

Yep, she’s only gone and done it again. William may well have reportedly told his darling wife that she looked ‘like a banana,’ in her yellow Roksanda Ilincic shift, but we think she’s picture perfect. Again. Stepping off their RAF jet in Sydney for the Australian leg of the Royal Tour dressed in Australia’s rugby and football colours was another shrewd move by Kate… and not a colour we can all pull off with such finesse.
