Kate Middleton has had a busy day on Wednesday, when she attended several events and engagements, including the official opening of the Magic Garden. She also wore a recycled outfit during the said event and admitted that she should have brought Prince George along with her.
The Duchess of Cambridge led the opening ceremony of the Magic Garden located in London’s Hampton Court Palace. For the outdoor ceremony, Kate wore a gray Michael Kors tweed coat with a flared skirt. Royal watchers and avid fashion fans may recall that Kate wore the said designer coat during the 2014 Anzar Day remembrance service, E!News reported. For the said event, Kate accentuated her attire with a floral pin pendant, a dark blue hat and blue heels. However, the Duchess kept her look simple during the Magic Garden opening with nude pumps, a small clutch bag and jewelry.
The royal mother-of-two also met a small group of school children at the Magic Garden opening. She even spent a few minutes talking with the kids and their parents. The Duchess of Cambridge was said to have revealed that her son Prince George would have loved the park’s play area, Hello magazine reported. Some of the unique attractions at the Magic Garden included a 25-foot long dragon, as well as a huge dragon’s nest.
Parent Natalie O’Roarke, whose son was playing at the Magic Garden’s sandpit, told reporters that Kate “wished she should have brought” Prince George along with her, as stated in the same report. An eight-year old school girl, named Olivia, also shared that the Duchess commented on Prince George potentially being “a little scared” of the dragon.
Apart from the official opening of the Magic Garden, Kate also attended a lunch reception at the Anna Freud Center’s new center of excellence. This was followed by a visit to the National Portrait Gallery.
