Homeward Bound: Kate Middleton’s Airport Style

The Duke and Duchess are homeward bound. After a whirlwind 9 day Royal Tour, the young Royals arrived in Brisbane, Australia to a 200 strong crowd of locals plus five television crews and a whole host of newspaper photographers. With just a few hours in Australia before William and Kate had to board yet another flight, this time UK-bound, Kate treated us to two outfit changes.
Arriving from Tuvalu, The Duchess, descended the airplane steps in a pale pink Project D floral print Penelope dress, aptly designed by Australian design team, Dannii Minogue and Tabitha Somerset Webb. Caught short by a gust of wind, the Duchess managed to narrowly escape some further unwanted exposure as she struggled to hold down her billowing dress.
After meeting with some of the Australian media, Kate then changed into more appropriate travel-wear for the long-haul journey home, replacing her dress with dark blue skinny jeans, a white long-sleeved top, pretty printed scarf and handy Longchamp bag. Trust the Duchess of Cambridge to travel in royal style.
