Whether you’re a fan of K-Middy and Prince William or not, it’s hard not to be a bit intrigued by the Royal tours — what will Kate Middleton wear? Where will they go? How many pairs of wedges can one woman own?
With their India and Bhutan trip kicking off in Mumbai, there have already been some pretty amazing pics. Our favourites are from the cricket… She is SUCH a good sport, actually running about and leaping over those plastic cone things you used in PE lessons — all while in a midi dress and wedges.
