The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arriving at Clarchens Ballhaus for the creative industries reception.
This was Catherine’s third wardrobe change of the day. This time she used the opportunity to wear another sartorial selection recognizing her host country. The Duchess wore a dress by Markus Lupfer, a German-born, London-based designer.
The teal bird-print jacquard dress is from the Pre Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection. It was a very different choice from Catherine’s usual style. The sleeveless dress is almost maxi-length. Thanks to HeavenQRF for the Dress ID.
The Duchess added her own touch to the dress by adding a chic belt. Catherine teamed the dress with her Prada Scalloped Suede Sandals from last night.
Catherine accessorized looks with her Soru Jewellery Baroque Pearl earrings and triple strand pearl bracelet.
The Triple Pearl and Diamond Spacer bracelet belong to her late Mother-in-law Princess Diana. Diana wore the elegant piece on a number of occasions – most memorably with her Catherine Walker ‘Elvis’ outfit and Cambridge Lovers Knot Tiara.
Today, the Duchess debuted a new clutch. The Made-in-India clutch is from Anne Grand-Clement. The handmade clutch was described by the designer as:
Each one of my pouches reflects the amazing labour of one embroiderer whose singular skill has been passed down for generations. Using a traditional Beauvais stitch, the embroiderer is seated bending over the loom as if in meditation. Up to 30 hours is needed to complete one pouch.
The Duke and Duchess enjoyed the evening in the company of British Council director Rachel Launay. A highlight of the evening was a performance by Sam Hall known as DJ Goldierocks.
The royal couple met the DJ during the event.
The Duke and Duchess leave the reception after having a great time. Tomorrow is the last day of the royal tour.
