Kate Middleton has continued doing engagements over Zoom as many in the UK social distance due amid the coronavirus pandemic. But the virtual events haven’t stopped the Duchess of Cambridge from debuting some new pieces. Today, the Duchess embraced a more summery look, wearing a $69 blue floral Marks & Spencer dress for her appearance at a virtual assembly for the Oak National Academy, which will air in full tomorrow.
The dress hasn’t sold out yet.
In the teaser clip, Kate said, “Today, I wanted to talk to you about the importance of being kind and looking after one another. I’m now going to join a Zoom call with some pupils from Waterloo Primary Academy in Blackpool, to find out what kindness means to them.” She then discussed the meaning of the word with the school children.
The Duchess also shared a video today of herself in a blue dress, encouraging people to submit to the Hold Still photography exhibit for the UK’s National Portrait Gallery. The museum is one of Kate’s patronages. The dress she was wearing is by Stella McCartney. She first wore the look in 2012 when she visited the National Portrait Gallery.
“There have been so many amazing entries to Hold Still over the last few weeks,” Kate said. “But it isn’t too late to take part. So please take a moment to capture what life’s like for you. I can’t wait to share the final 100 images with you.”
