Kate Middleton has really earned herself a foot rub from Prince William today, which happens to be their second wedding anniversary.
The busy Duchess has been making public appearances on a nearly daily basis over the past week promoting various projects, and she (and the royal baby bump) stepped out yet again today to visit a children's hospice.
For the visit, she donned a nude dress made by her "personal dressmaker" and a peach colored coat from Paris-based Canadian designer, Tara Jarmon. The "Manteau Trapeze Coton Serge" coat goes for €340, or roughly $445. She topped it all off with her trusty nude LK Bennetts, according to Grazia.
The other big news is that we finally get to hear Kate Middleton's voice. Together for Short Lives, a UK charity which supports palliative care for children with life-threatening illnesses, released a video over the weekend featuring the Duchess asking people to support Children's Palliative Care Week.
This is the Duchess's first-ever "recorded broadcast message," according to US Weekly, and it's definitely a bit more serious than that video of her and Prince William getting Harry Potter wand lessons that made the rounds last week--it's actually kind of a tear-jerker to be honest. She must have recorded the video a few weeks ago when she visited the Child Bereavement UK headquarters--she's wearing the same Topshop Peter Pan collar dress that she wore then. She delivers her plea for support with a pretty posh accent, and seems composed, confident, and genuine. Throughout the video, there are stills of her from a past visit to The Treehouse children's hospice where she's wearing that 2008 blue Reiss dress that mum Carole Middleton had worn two years prior. (Bets on when Reiss will re-release it?)
