The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Wales for St. David’s Day. Lots of agriculture and lots of green were featured!
They started the day at the delightfully named Pant Farm, a goat farm that supplies milk for local cheese production. Goats, I know, are a favorite among some of you, and the Duchess seems to agree. That country girl at heart then took her husband off to Abergavenny Market to check out some of the local vendors.
For the first portion of the trip, Catherine wore a Seeland “Woodcock Advanced Jacket”, her leggings, and a pair of Blundstone boots (which I need for my own farm, where I look far less glamorous overall).
Later, she changed up into her repeated Sportmax coat and a more citified pair of boots (Aquatalia, the brand, if not the exact shoes worn to her first-ever royal engagement) to head to Blaenavon Hwb, a community-focused youth center (or centre, it is Wales). When the coats came off there was a sea of green sweaters (or jumpers, they are British). The captions say the couple helped prepare some Welsh cakes. I say it was a Catherine-led activity with some cheering and a lot of observation from William.
She’s worn this coat at least five times with some surprising accessorizing that I had entirely forgotten. The appearances run the gamut from hatted and formal to downright casual and jaunty. Yesterday’s outing is shown below.
I promised you some Duchess of Cornwall, so here she is with her husband. They visited Southend-on-Sea to declare it officially a city, and Camilla wore the Queen Mother’s Rock Crystal brooch. It’s a favorite of mine and I like to feature whenever the Duchess busts it out.
Look at Charles eyeball that brooch! Continuity is the theme of the day.
